When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you can both access and change any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by some script-driven app that you wish to run.
