How to create a public Discord server:
First, you need to create a server, and after you create a server, by default it is set to private; you need to change its settings manually and set it as a public Discord server.
Creating a public Discord server is a very simple process, but you need to use Discord web or the Discord app for PC to make it happen.
For the Discord mobile app, you can go to a certain step; after that, you can’t continue and can’t successfully complete the installation there. To complete the setup, you need a desktop or laptop computer. Now follow the steps below to create a public server on Discord.
Step 1: Open Discord app on PC and sign in
Search Discord in your browser, go to the ‘Sign In’ page, enter your email/phone number and password, and sign in or sign in with a QR code.
Open the Discord app on your mobile device, go to your profile, tap the “Scan QR Code” option, set the camera to your desktop screen, and log in to your account. After logging into your account, you will enter the Discord home page.
On the left of the screen, you can see a “+” sign there. Click on it, then select the server mode you want to create, then choose again if you want to create your own server for a community or for your friends. Then enter your server name and upload your server profile picture. Then tap “Create”.
Step 2: Tap “Server Settings”
In the left column of the screen, all the servers you have created or joined. Click on the server you just created and you will see a popup on the left side of the screen containing information about the channels on your server.
If you have already created channels, you can view them there, and if not, Discord provides a server with “TEXT CHANNELS” and “VOICE CHANNELS”.
You can see your server name at the top of these channel names, and right next to it is a down arrow. Click on it and many options will open, tap on the second option, “Server Settings”.
Step 3: Go to “Enable Community”
After clicking the “Server Settings” option, a new window will open with three subsections: “YOUR CHANNEL NAME”, “COMMUNITY”, “USER MANAGEMENT”.
You can make basic changes to your server from these sections, like changing your server name, uploading your Discord server profile picture, uploading emojis, stickers, etc. Now, to continue, click on the “Enable Community” option in the “COMMUNITY” subsection.
Step 4: Select the “Get Started” option.
After clicking the “Enable Community” option, a new screen will appear asking you to make your server a community server.
Turning your server into a community service will help you access additional administrative tools that can help you moderate, run, and grow your server. To do this, tap on the “Get Started” option displayed in the middle of the screen.
Step 5: Grant permissions and complete the installation
After clicking the “Start” option, a new screen will appear where you need to verify. First, you will enter the “Security Checks” section where you need to check the “Verified Email Required” and “Scan All Member Media” boxes.
Then select “Next” and go to the next section, “Base Settings”. Here you must choose an option from the “Create one for me” or “#general” sections to determine where Discord sends server updates, rules, and guidelines.
Click “Next” again and go to the last section, “Finishing.” In this section, you can choose whether or not to remove everyone’s moderation permission and default notifications for mentions or not.
Then check the “I agree and understand” box after reading the community guidelines and finally tap “Finish setup”.
Step 6 – Click “Request Discovery”
After clicking the “Finish Setup” option, a new screen will appear with the sections “Set Welcome Screen”, “Request Discovery”, “Check Server Statistics”.
Scroll down the page and you can set your primary server language and server description from here and you can disable your community from here.
Now tap on the “Request Tracking” option and another screen will open where you need to select the “Set Tracking” option, which will appear in the middle of the screen.

- Server information must be enabled for at least 200 members necessary to meet certain business requirements.
