Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and update any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software that can update certain settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to perform anything you would like. You can also make other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done via 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.
