Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and update any file on it, including crucial system files. You can also install software which can change specific settings on the server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you'd like. You may also make additional users either with the same 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 generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done through 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.
