How Do I Invite Someone to a Discord Server That Isn’t Yours?

Discord is a popular communication platform that allows users to create and manage their own servers. While inviting someone to a server you own is straightforward, inviting someone to a server that isn’t yours requires a slightly different approach. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps of inviting someone to a Discord server that you do not have ownership of.

Step 1: Obtaining the Server Invite Link

Before you can invite someone to a Discord server that isn’t yours, you need to obtain the server invite link. This link allows others to join the server with just a single click. To get the invite link, follow these steps:

  1. Launch your Discord application and navigate to the server you want to invite someone to.
  2. Find the server’s name in the left sidebar and right-click on it.
  3. Select “Server Settings” from the context menu that appears.
  4. In the “Server Settings” window, click on the “Invites” tab located in the left sidebar.
  5. You will see a list of existing invites for your server. To create a new one, click on the “+ Create Invite” button.

Step 2: Configuring Invite Settings

After clicking on “+ Create Invite,” a new window will appear where you can configure various settings for your invite. Here’s what each option means:

  • Max Uses: Specifies how many times the invite can be used before it expires. Set this according to your preference or leave it as unlimited if there are no restrictions.
  • Expiration: Determines when the invite link will expire. You can choose from options like 30 minutes, 1 day, 1 week, or create a permanent invite.
  • Grant Temporary Membership: If enabled, users who join via the invite link will only have temporary membership and will not be able to access all server features.

Once you have configured these settings, click on the “Generate a New Link” button to create the invite.

Step 3: Sharing the Invite Link

With your invite link generated, it’s time to share it with the person you want to invite. There are several ways you can do this:

  • Copy Link: Click on the “Copy” button next to the invite link to copy it to your clipboard. You can then paste it into an email, chat message, or any other communication platform.
  • Email: If you prefer sending an email invitation, you can click on the “Email” button.

    Discord will open your default email client with a pre-filled message containing the invite link.

  • QR Code: For a unique and visually engaging way of sharing invites, you can click on the “QR Code” button. Discord will generate a QR code that can be scanned by others using their mobile device’s camera.

Note: Make sure to share the invite link securely and only with trusted individuals. Discord servers should maintain a safe and friendly environment for all members.


You have successfully learned how to invite someone to a Discord server that isn’t yours. By following these steps and properly sharing the invite link, you can easily bring new members into the server and expand your community.

Remember to use this feature responsibly and ensure that everyone follows the rules and guidelines of the server. Happy inviting!
