Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and modify any file on it, including crucial system files. You may also install software that can update specific settings on your server throughout the, so the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to perform anything you would like. You may also make other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
