Having full root-level access means that you can access and update any file on a specific server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do all the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also create other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a different account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control of your server from any kind of location, given that you have the user credentials.
