How do I invite friends to my server?

Always read the label:

Before you create a server you need to log in or register an account with your email and password in the browser or a discord desktop application. Once doing so you can continue to step 1.

Whether your friends are seasoned Discordians or have never touched the app, inviting them to your server is a piece of cake (and no, I’m not lying).

“RYUU GA WAGA TE-” sorry friend that won’t work here. 

Open your server and click the Instant Invite icon next to the channel name.

A box will appear with an invite link and direct invite buttons for the friends or group DMs that you’ve communicated with most recently! Simply press a nifty button or copy, paste, and send that new invite link to any and all of your unsuspecting subjects (*er, friends*) and begin operation world domination!

Note: Each channel in your server has it’s own Instant Invite link, and whichever channel you pull the link from is where the user will land on your server each time they try to access it. For example, if you send Glados an invite link from your #rules channel, then every time she accesses your server the #rules chat channel will be the first channel she sees. 

However, if you’re frustrated and tired from figuring out which Portal to take, you can always send your friends an invite by right-clicking on their icon from anywhere in Discord then selecting Invite to Server.

As long as you have the Create Instant Invite permission for your role on a server, you’ll be able to see the server in the drop-down menu that appears. Once you select the server, a DM will be sent to your friend with the invite!

Lastly, if your friend has never used Discord before then you can send them the invite link anywhere you can paste the text. Upon clicking (or, copy/pasting) it, they’ll be prompted with a quick rundown on Discord including an opportunity to set up an account.

How do I create a server?

Always read the label:

Before you create a server you need to login or register an account with your email and password in the browser or a discord desktop application. Once doing so you can continue to step 1.

1. Click the “+” button on the left hand column

No matter if it’s the first, second, or third server you’ve made, this is the place you’ll need to go. Note that the “+” icon can be hidden if you have a lot of servers. Simply scroll down the server column to find where the “+” is hiding.

The next window that appears will give you two options: “Create” or “Join.” We’re going to choose “Create” so just pretend like “Join” doesn’t even exist (don’t worry if it gets jelly).

2. Server Info

After deciding between doors number one and two, you can enter in the server name, and change the server icon by locating it in your files.

The minimum size for icons is 128×128. If you’d like to select a specific area from a large image, crop it in multiples of 128 (128X2=256, 128X3=384, etc.).

Here, you’ll also be able to change the server region by…clicking “change.” We currently have ten different regions to choose from, and plan on adding more in the future.

After selecting the server region, click “create” and bada-bing-bada-boom you’ve created your first server! 

From here you can invite members, create and join servers. To figure out how to invite people and more about invites and inviting read my next post.

Discord Me – Add your Server

Discord Me is a Server List that helps you promote your server. Here on Discord One, we highly recommend it as one of the most effective server lists.

In this tutorial, we’ll cover on how to add your server.

Add your server

2. Click on “Login” on the top right side.

5. Now, click on “+ Add Server”.

6. You now get to this window.

Click on “Add Bot”.

8. You are now being redirected to a Discord page. Click on “Select a server” and select the server you are currently adding. Then, click on “Authorize”.

9. Now, you may need to solve a reCaptcha. A reCaptcha helps preventing bots from doing automated actions. It is also known as the popular “I am not a robot” checkbox. Click on the checkbox and solve the excercise.

10. That’s it, you now added the Discord Me bot to your server. Go to the other tab again where you were filling in the fields for your server. Continue with it until you come to this window:

This page is an overview page where you can see the information you just entered. Check if everything is correct and click on “Confirm & Create”.

11. That’s it, you now got back to your dashboard and can see your server has been added.

Server Bumping

To make sure your server gets listed high on Discord Me, you need to bump as often as possible. Bumping means solving a small reCaptcha to increase your so-called bump points. Bump points help you being listed higher in search results and on the main page.

To bump your server, go to your dashboard. Then, select the server you want to bump and click “Bump Server”.

A window will pop up with a reCaptcha and a button. Solve the recaptcha by clicking on the checkbox and solving the excerciese.

That’s it, you have successfully bumped your server.

Discord.Me has bump windows in an interval of 6 hours. You can bump once per bump window. Bumping will give you 1 bump point, which you can increase up to 2 bump points by buying Premium.


That’s it with this tutorial, I hope it helped you. Check out this tutorial about Disboard, another server list.

Disboard – Add a server

In this tutorial, we’ll cover how to add a server to Disboard.

Disboard is a server list for Discord. It is one of the most effective server lists I ever have seen, and adding your server to it can definitely help.

2. Click on “Login” on the top right side.

3. If required, log in to your Discord account. Then, click on “Authorize”.

Once you’re finished, click on the “Save” button.

7. You’ll be redirected to a page of Discord. Click “Authorize”.

8. That’s it. You can now manage your server from your dashboard. To access your dashboard, hover over your avatar on the top right side and click on “Your servers”.

Server Bumping

During the tutorial above, we also have added the Disboard bot to your server. To get the most out of Disboard, you need to bump as often as possible.

To bump your server, you can use the !bump command on your server. You can do that every 2 hours and it will bump your server to the top of the Disboard page.
