Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify any file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the server. The root-level access function offers you full control over your server from any location, given that you have the user credentials.
