How to transfer ownership of a Discord server?

There are situations where you must transfer ownership of your discord server before you take a break. For example, you can’t delete your Discord account if you own any server.

You can transfer a server to any member and can’t undo the action once it’s completed. The new owner can remove you from the server anytime.

Frequently Asked Questions

Someone else transferred my server; what can I do?

You can’t do anything once the transfer is completed. Discord doesn’t have two-step confirmation via email or wait till the new owner accepts the request. The process takes only a few seconds. If you lose access to the server, you can’t undo it.

Can I transfer ownership for a while?

If you temporarily deactivate your discord account, you can transfer the ownership to a friend you can trust. So don’t transfer the ownership to a random online friend because you can only get back your server if the new owner willingly transfers the ownership.
