Having root-level access to a server signifies that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You can also install software which can update particular settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you want. You can also generate various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. 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 that 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 manage it at the root level.
