How Do I Change the Region on My Discord Server?
Discord is a popular platform for gamers and communities to connect and communicate. One of the settings you may need to adjust on your Discord server is the region.
By changing the region, you can optimize voice chat performance by selecting a server location that is closest to you or your community members. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to change the region on your Discord server.
Step 1: Accessing Server Settings
To change the region on your Discord server, start by opening your Discord application and logging in to your account. Once logged in, select the desired server from the left-hand sidebar. The server’s icon will be displayed at the top-left corner of your screen.
Note: You need to have administrative privileges or be assigned a role with sufficient permissions to modify server settings.
Step 2: Opening Server Settings
With the desired server selected, locate and click on the small down arrow next to the server name. This will open a dropdown menu with several options. From this menu, select “Server Settings”.
Step 3: Navigating to Server Region
Once inside the Server Settings, you will see various options organized into categories on the left side of your screen. Scroll down until you find “Server Region” under the “Overview” category.
- If you are unable to see “Server Region,” it means that you do not have sufficient permissions to modify this setting. In this case, contact an administrator or someone with appropriate privileges.
- The option might also be hidden if you are using the Discord mobile app. Switch to the desktop version for full access to server settings.
Step 4: Changing Server Region
Click on the dropdown menu next to “Server Region” to see the available options. Discord offers a variety of regions, including US East, US West, Europe, and more. Select the region that is closest to you or where most of your community members are located.
Note: Changing the server region might affect your voice chat quality due to differences in server locations. Choose a region that provides the best overall performance for your community.
Step 5: Saving Changes
After selecting the desired server region, click on the “Save Changes” button at the bottom-right corner of your screen. Discord will apply the new region settings to your server.
Congratulations! You have successfully changed the region on your Discord server. Enjoy improved voice chat performance and a smoother communication experience with your community!
Note: In some cases, changing the server region might cause a temporary disconnection from voice channels as Discord switches servers. This is normal and should resolve within a few seconds.
