OK, so we know how important Discord is to many users, and we do not expect this to change any time soon. Now, as many of us already know, folks can have their own servers on Discord, but what if a person no longer wants to hold ownership over a server?
Why give up ownership of your Discord server?
There can be many reasons why a person might want to give up ownership of their Discord server to another owner. Maybe you are too busy to maintain a server at this time, or the focused topic is no longer something that interests you. Whatever the case may be, you can release your Discord server to anyone you’ve chosen to become the new administrator.
How to transfer ownership of a Discord server
There are multiple ways to transfer ownership of a Discord server to another person. You can do it via your Desktop or Mobile. This article will explain how to do it via both ways, but we will focus first on how to get the job done on the desktop.
- Open the Discord desktop app
- Select the server you want to transfer
- Click on the arrow icon pointing down
- Select the Members section
- Search for the new owner
- Transfer server to the new owner
1] Open the Discord desktop app
OK, so the first thing you will want to do here, is to open the Discord application on your Windows 11 machine. You can do this in a few ways. For example, you can launch it from the desktop, or from the Taskbar if you have the icon pinned there.
If you have the icon pinned to the Start Menu, then press the Windows key on your keyboard to locate it. Alternatively, you can press the Windows key, then select All Apps and find the Discord app from there.
2] Select the server you want to transfer
OK, so after you’ve opened the Discord app on your Windows 11 computer, you must now look to the left sidebar and click the preferred server you want to get rid of.
3] Click on the arrow icon pointing down
After you’ve selected the server, you should now see an arrow next to the server name. Click on it right away to reveal additional options to choose from. From the new menu, you will now need to choose Server Settings
4] Select the Members section
The next step here is to quickly select Members from the sidebar. You will find it below User Management, so it is impossible to miss.
5] Search for the new owner
Via the Server Members section, you will now want to locate the user you want to transfer the server to. Next to the user’s name, please click on the three-dotted menu button to showcase more information.
6] Transfer server to the new owner
When you click the three-dotted menu button, a dropdown menu will appear. Select Transfer Ownership, then toggle the acknowledgment button to green. Finally, hit the red Transfer Ownership button and that’s it.
What will happen if you relieve ownership of your Discord server to someone else?
OK, so whenever a person transfers ownership of their Discord server to another user, that person becomes the owner of the server, as expected. You will remain part of the server until whenever you choose to leave. Furthermore, you must be the real owner of the server in order to pass it on to a third party.
