Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also install software which can modify particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you need. You can also generate other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, 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 to the server and to manage it at the root level.
