Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You can also install software that can modify specific settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you'll be able to do anything you need. You can also create additional users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually 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 to be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
