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.

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

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”.
