Are you looking to make your Discord server public? Having a public server allows you to invite more people to join your community and engage with like-minded individuals. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to make your Discord server public.
Step 1: Server Settings
To begin, open your Discord application and navigate to the server you want to make public. Once there, click on the server name at the top left corner of the screen.
This will open up a drop-down menu where you’ll find the “Server Settings” option. Click on it.
Step 2: Overview Tab
In the Server Settings menu, you’ll see several tabs on the left-hand side. Click on the “Overview” tab. This tab provides an overview of your server’s settings.
Server Name and Description
The first section in the Overview tab is where you can edit your server’s name and description. Make sure your server name is catchy and descriptive so that it stands out from others. Additionally, write a concise yet informative description that accurately represents what your server is all about.
The next setting in this tab is “Verification Level.” This feature allows you to control who can join your server based on their account age and connection status with Discord. By default, this setting is set to “None,” which means anyone can join without any restrictions.
- None: Anyone can join without any restrictions.
- Low: Users must have a verified email address on their Discord account.
- Medium: Users must have a verified email address and be registered on Discord for at least 5 minutes.
- High: Users must have a verified email address, be registered on Discord for at least 5 minutes, and be a member of the server for more than 10 minutes.
- Very High: Users must have a verified phone number on their Discord account.
Choose the verification level that best suits your server’s needs. Keep in mind that higher verification levels may limit the number of potential members.
The last setting in this tab is “Server Privacy.” By default, servers are set to private, meaning only invited members can access them.
To make your server public, click on the slider next to “Server Privacy” to enable it. Once enabled, users will be able to find and join your server through search or invite links.
Step 3: Server Discovery
Now that you’ve made your server public, it’s time to optimize its visibility. Discord offers a feature called “Server Discovery” that allows users to find and explore various communities. To enable this feature for your server:
- 1. Categories and Tags: In the Overview tab, scroll down to find the “Categories” and “Tags” sections. Select appropriate categories and tags that accurately represent your server’s content and interests. This will help users discover your server when they search for specific categories or tags.
Server Banner: Above the Categories section, you’ll find an option to upload a server banner image. Choose an eye-catching banner that reflects your server’s theme or logo. This image will be displayed when users come across your server in search results.
- 3. Server Boosting: Server boosting is a premium feature that enhances your server’s visibility in the Discord community. By boosting your server, you’ll unlock additional perks and increase your chances of being discovered by more users.
Step 4: Inviting Members
Now that your server is public, it’s time to invite members to join! You can share an invite link with others or promote your server through social media channels, forums, or websites related to your server’s niche. Remember to create an engaging and informative invite message that entices potential members to join.
Congratulations! You have successfully made your Discord server public.
With these steps and tips, you can now expand your community and create a thriving environment for like-minded individuals. Enjoy connecting with new members and exploring the possibilities of Discord!
Note: It’s important to moderate your server effectively and enforce community guidelines to ensure a positive experience for all members.
