Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and update every file on a selected server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any kind of location, given that you have the user credentials.
