Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You can also set up software which can modify specific settings on your server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you need. You may also generate additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.
