Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize every file on a selected server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned things. Your root user can also generate other users.

The root-level access feature provides you with full control over your server from any kind of location, given that you have the user credentials.
