Have you ever heard of the term remote server? In the world of IT, this term is familiar and has often been heard, especially for those of you who are web developers. Based on the definition, remote server is a server that can be accessed directly for other processes without the need to open a connection, either separately, directly or differently, where the results will be sent directly to the client application.

In other words, remote server is a server that can be accessed remotely even though the user is not on the same LAN network. 

Given its important and very vital role, many companies put their servers in a hidden and unknown place with the aim that all stored data is not stolen by irresponsible people or otherwise known as hackers.

Even so, you will still be able to access it without having to come to the location where the server is.

Then, who can access the remote server? The answer is people who already know the IP address of the server, username, and password.

Steps to Build a Remote Server

  1. Setting up both servers with the same local or remote server
  2. Configure the server so that it can be accessed remotely
  3. Determine the method for mapping logins, both user to login and user to server in remote server settings
  4. Specifies the remote option for checking passwords. 

How to access the server using Windows

  1. Open the Start menu and select "Map Network Drive"
  2. Fill in the folder column using the IP address or hostname of the server that will be accessed
  3. Select "Reconnect at sign-in" so that it can automatically connect to the server once you turn on your device.
  4. Press the finish button and then you will get a server shortcut
  5. To log into the server, you only need to click on the shortcut and enter your username and login.

How to Access the Server Using Mac OS

  1. Clicking the Finder icon
  2. Open the "Go" menu and click "Connect to Server"
  3. Enter the IP address or server hostname to be accessed
  4. If the server uses Windows OS, don't forget to add the code "sbm: //" before entering the IP address or hostname
  5. Clicking "Connect", and entering a username and password.

Advantages of Remote Server

Remote Server

There are several advantages that you can get when using a remote server. The following are some of the benefits you can get, including:

1. Easy to turn off and turn on the server

Because the server can be accessed directly, either using the application or by setting, the advantage you can get is that you can activate and shut down the server wherever and whenever you want. This is quite efficient not in managing or configuring the server.

2. Easy to Monitor the Use of Resources

Another advantage of using a remote server is that you can find out your web server resource usage, as well as monitor and optimize so that web server resources are not full.

This is of course an advantage if your resource usage has exceeded the above, then you can upgrade as soon as possible so that your website does not have errors and bugs that disturb users when visiting your website.

3. Easy to Monitor Security

Remote server also helps you in monitoring the security of your website. Just imagine if a server that is full of your important data is infiltrated by irresponsible people then hacking into your website and creating problems on your website, of course your website is inaccessible and reduces the level of user visits because the security is not trusted.

Through a remote server, you will monitor the security of your website anytime and anywhere so that it will make it easier for you to do early detection and prevention in the event of a hacker attack.

4. System Can Be Repaired Easily

With a remote server, you can also easily repair your website system in case of bugs or errors. Not only that, by using this remote server, you can also check and fix it quickly.

5. Can Control Other Computers

Another advantage of using a remote server is that it makes it easier for you to control other computers that are also connected to this server so that if an error or bug occurs, you can help the owner of that computer to solve it more effectively.

6. Easy to turn on and turn off the computer remotely

By using a remote server, you can also easily turn off and on other computers that are directly connected to the same server. This certainly makes it easier for you to save your time and energy.

Applications for Remote Server

Currently there are several applications that already support remote servers and are often used, including:

1. TeamViewer

Is an application that allows computers to share files or other data residing on other computers. This application has been chosen because it is easy to install and use. In addition, TeamViewer also provides many features that can be featured for remote servers. However, one other advantage of this application is that you don't need to change router or firewall settings and configurations on your network, just connect.

2. Remote PC

Remote PC application is also an application that is often used for remote server activities because several features in it support the use of this activity. These features include the multi-access feature that allows you to invite multiple users to access the device via their email address, text and voice chat features that allow you to collaborate with your colleagues in realtime remotely via the chat feature available, and some other excellent features.

3. Windows Remote Desktop

If you are a Windows user, on that device there is an application called remote desktop that supports remote server activity. There are several advantages of this application, such as being easy to use, being able to manipulate client computer data very easily, having chat and video call features so you can communicate with your colleagues, and ensuring the security of your data because the client will not be able to manipulate data.

Even so, there are drawbacks to this application, namely by using this application, so be prepared to be patient because this application causes your computer to be slow in terms of the loading process.

4. Unified Remote Desktop

This application can be used for various operating systems that support remote server activities, such as Mac, Windows, or Linux. In addition, this application can also be used via mobile devices.


That's some information about remote servers, benefits, and several other supporting applications.

If you want to create another application that can support remote server activities, you can use a professional application development service company that can help you create similar applications that can help grow your business.
