How to Transfer Ownership on Discord

Discord is a chat that millions of users utilize daily. It’s simple to use and can be accessed on any device. One of the great features of Discord is the ability to easily transfer ownership of a server to another user. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it.

Before diving into the steps, you’ll want to make sure you are actually the owner of the Discord server you want to transfer. There are two ways to check who owns a Discord server. The first and easiest way is to go to the server’s general channel and see if you have a crown to the right of your name. If you hover over the crown, it will say Server Owner. The second way to check if you own a Discord server is by seeing if you can delete the Discord server.
