Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software that can modify specific settings on the server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you would like. You may also generate additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
