Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and change 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 required by certain scripts and even offline applications in order to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. Your root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access attribute provides you with full control over your server from any location, given that you know the user credentials.
