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 update certain settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you'd like. You can also make other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do through 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.

With the final Control Panel option that you will be able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
