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 which can update specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to perform anything you need. You can also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really 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 with the server and to control it at the root level.
