Having full root-level access means that you can access and customize each file on a selected server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the server. The root-level access function offers you full control over your server from any location, provided that you have the user credentials.
