Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and modify every file on a specific server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also make other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control of your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.
