Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You may also install software which can modify certain settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you'd like. You can also create additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - daily 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 through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
