Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You can also install software that can modify particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you want. You can also create additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
