If you're here, you most likely have an account on Discord but you're still trying to understand how to access our online communities, also known as servers. Here's how you can get started with servers!
What does this article cover?
What is a Server?
Think of any server you join as a giant tree house - each channel within a server represents another room within your tree house that you can chat with your friends!
Servers act as individual hubs split into two parts: text channels and voice channels.
The column on the very left-hand side of your Discord app is your server list. Any time you add a server, you'll see it pop up as a small circular icon in this list, and they'll show up vertically:
- You can rearrange your server list by dragging server icons up and down.
- You can even group servers together by dragging them on top of another!
Join a Server
Users can join/create up to 100 Discord servers.
You can raise this cap to 200 Servers when you subscribe to Discord Nitro.
Q: What happens if I'm in more than 100 servers but lose Nitro?
A: We won’t remove you from any servers you’ve joined; however, you will no longer be able to join servers until you bring the total count under 100.
