But what if you do not have an invite link? Don’t worry we will cover this query too. There are three different ways by which you can join the discord server without a link. But before moving ahead you should be aware of the type of servers discord has:

  1. Public Server

You do not need any invitation link to join the public server. The public server is open to all discord users.

  1. Private Server

Private Servers are specially built for some important group of members under a specific niche of community. You need to have an invite link for a private server to join. There is no way to join a private server if you do not have any invitation link.

Firstly we will discuss how you can join a public server without a link.

  1. Using Explore
  • Open Discord on your PC
  • On the homepage, navigate to the left sidebar
  • Click on the Compass button at the very bottom of the bar
  • Find the server by entering the server’s name
  • If you are unaware of the server name, browse by categories
  • When you found your results, click on “Join (Server Name)
  1. Using is a website, basically a pack of servers and bots supported by discord. You can search for the server on this website and join it from the search results. The steps to search and join are mentioned below:

  • On your web browser, type and search the address
  • Once the website opens up, click on the Discord Servers
  • Under ‘Explore millions of Discord Bots & Servers’, search for the desired server by typing its name
  • Once you got your server, click on Join

 3. Using Disboard

Disboard is another website where you can find millions of public servers online. You just have to search for your server and if you find it in your search results, open it and click on join to join the server on discord. 

How to join the Discord server?

Joining Discord is quite easy. You just have to click on Join on the invite link you have got and you will enter into the server instantly. To know more about joining a discord server through various possible ways, read below:

With expired link

There are no possibilities of joining a discord with an expired link. Discord never allows its user to carry out any action on the expired link. If you happen to miss joining the server through the link and later on found to be expired, you can then ask the owner to generate a new invite link and send it to you. 

For future safety, it is recommended that you tell the owner to generate the link which is permanently active. 

To generate the server link:

  • Open Discord and log in with your login details
  • From the main menu, tap on the desired server
  • Click on Invite
  • Click on Copy Link and it will copy the link of your server to your dashboard
  • Now you can send copied link to anyone who you want to join to your server

With ID

Every discord server is authenticated with unique IDs. You can find the unique ID of your server by following the steps below:

  • Open Discord
  • Go to the Setting sections
  • Click on Advanced from the left pane
  • Select the Developer Mode
  • Once the Developer Mode is activated, you can easily find the Discord ID
  1. Right-click on the Discord Server
  2. You will get the ID number
  3. Copy it 

You will hence get the 18-digit unique Discord ID code.

But it will be disheartening to know that you can not join any server even if you have its ID. You can only join a server when you have the invitation code from any of its server members or an invite link. Discord server ID code just helps to know about the name and other basic details about the server and it does not help with the joining process. 


Can you join the discord server without an invite?

  • Paste the following code in console:  function getCreationDate(id) { return new Date((id / 4194304) + 1420070400000); } getCreationDate(“insertId”)
  • In the place of insertId, enter your server ID 
  • Hit enter and you will get the age of your server

How many mods should a discord server have?

2-3 mods are ideal for a working server. Too many mods can mess up the working environment. However, you can replace your mods if you find your older mods are not up to the mark in handling the server members.
