Overseeing a server with many members can be fun but it can also be complicated, especially if you’re moderating for tens of thousands of users. It can quickly feel like a full-time job!
If you can’t commit the necessary time to your Discord server, you could transfer its ownership to someone in a better position to continue its growth. If you want to know how to do this, we’ve got you covered!
Here is a short guide on the necessary steps to transfer ownership of a Discord server:

Transferring Server Ownership To A User
- Open Discord, right-click your server icon, and select Server Settings
- Under User Management, select Members
- Scroll until you find the member you want to transfer ownership to, or use the search function
- Select the user, expand the menu by clicking on the three dots, then click Transfer Ownership
- This will open a prompt to confirm your decision. If you confirm, ownership of your Discord server will be transferred to your chosen successor.
That’s all you need to do.
You are no longer the owner of the server. Consider your decision carefully because there is no way to reverse this action. Once ownership is transferred, it will remain that way permanently, unless the user gives ownership back to you.
