Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also install software which can update particular settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you'd like. You may also make various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
