Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update every file on a particular server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also make other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a different account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute will provide you with full control over your server from any kind of location, provided that you know the user credentials.
