Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including important system files. You may also set up software that can change specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you want. You can also generate various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
