Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and modify every file on a specific server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. The root user can also make various 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 do a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature will give you full control of your server from almost any location, as long as you know the user credentials.
