When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can install any server-side app no matter what the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you will be able to both access and customize any file, including system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things and to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software that may be required by a script-driven app that you want to run.
