Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and update every file on a particular server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also generate other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on your server. The root-level access feature will give you full control over your server from any location, given that you have the user credentials.
