Creating an Account and Selecting a Discord Server Name

Discord is an increasingly popular platform for people to connect. Each discussion gets its own Discord server, which operates kind of like a chat room, only there, users can enjoy additional features including voice channels, customizable roles, and integrated bots.

The best part? Creating an account isn't hard, and assigning yourself a Discord username is even less of a challenge. Follow the steps below to get started.

  1. Go to the official site or download and open the Discord app on your phone.
  2. Click on the "Login" button located on the top right of the screen and hit "Register."
  3. Enter your email address and create a password. Using a healthy mix of letters, numbers, and symbols here will give you a better chance of keeping your account secure. This is also where you'll input your preferred Discord username—the handle that other Discord users will see when interacting with you on the platform.
  4. You may be asked to complete a few additional verification steps like solving a captcha or confirming your email address. You must complete the prompt before moving forward.
  5. Review your information and click on "Continue" to create your Discord account.
  6. From here, you can choose a profile picture and customize your description. You can also join different Discord servers, participate in discussions, and begin interacting with other users on the platform.

What Makes a Good Discord Username?

Figuring out a good username on Discord isn't so different from settling on an Instagram handle or something similar. You want to stick to names that are relevant to your interests and what you plan to post on the platform.

Don't be afraid to get creative, either. The more originality you inject into your username, the easier you'll be to find online. And, if you're worried about account security, you can always throw in numbers, random letters, or symbols to better protect against hackers.

At the same time, you don't want to make your name too complicated. The platform recently implemented a site-wide refresh whereby all members must change their usernames. The founders are specifically trying to rid the site of "discriminators," or any four-digit code followed by a hashtag.

These variations allowed users to share a similar username while remaining somewhat distinct across the platform. Though the site owners have more recently backtracked on that option, citing concerns over usability.

"Our current usernames can often be too complicated or obscure for people to remember and share easily," Discord co-founder Stanislav Vishnevskiy announced via blog post.


How can I change my Discord username?

Each active Discord user has the option of changing their username up to two times per hour. All you need to do is go to "User Settings" and click the "My Account" tab. You'll see an "Edit" button next to your username. Click it and enter your new name of choice. You may also want to update your current password while you're at it.

How can I make changes to my Discord server name?

Not only is it possible for members to finesse their Discord usernames, but they also have the option of changing their Discord server's name as well—though they'll need to be an owner or a moderator to do so. All you have to do is go to "Server Settings." Then, go to the "Server Overview" section and make whatever changes you'd like to the server name.
