How to Transfer Discord Server Ownership

Easy ways to change the ownership on the Discord server when the admin hasn't been active.

Nowadays, you find a lot of messaging apps for Android and iPhone. Discord is one of the popular platforms among gamers, which can be used to chat, share images, and videos with your friends. The Discord application’s significant advantage is that it enables you to communicate with your friends while playing games. Like Facebook and Instagram, you can search and add people as your friends. Apart from adding or removing friends from your Discord server, you can also transfer server ownership when you’re not active for an extended period of time.


The servers are merely a “Chat Room” where you can interact with several people simultaneously. Further, it can be broken into channels, where you can send direct messages to the individuals.

You can transfer ownership to others only when your server has more than 100+ users. At the same time, your server must be 30-days old to change the admin.

If the owner has not been active for several months, the secondary controller of the server can gain ownership automatically by submitting a request to the Discord team. By mailing the necessary details to [email protected], the Discord team will change the admin rights. Or, go to Help and Support >> Server Ownership Transfer Request and provide the necessary details.
