Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and modify any file on a specific server, including all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your server. The root-level access function provides you with full control of your server from almost any location, given that you know the user credentials.
