Can You Join Discord Server Without a Link?

To answer this question, let’s clarify what kind of server we are talking about here.

If you are talking about a private server, I am sorry to tell you that you cannot join such servers without an invitation link.

On the other hand, if you are interested in some public servers, then know that you can join them without their links if you try a little more.

Good To Know

Private servers are private spaces for close friends or specific groups of people who can only join if you send them an invitation link. These servers are generally for particular niche communities. When you create a private server, only members can view your channels.

Public servers, as the name indicates, are the public spaces on Discord that everybody can join. These servers are generally around popular topics or themes, which all the fans and fanatics can join to have fun.

Since this is out of the way that we cannot join a private server without an invitation, let’s focus our energies on public servers. As you know, you can join a public server without a link. Want to learn how?

Final Words

Nothing is impossible in life, not even joining any public server without a link on Discord.

How can you manually join a Discord server?

Click on the “Add a Server” plus icon on your Discord main screen. Then, press the “Join a Server” button. Under the “Invite Link” bar, insert the link of a server or type it. Then press the “Join Server” button to join the particular server.

Why does Discord not let me join a server even through a valid invitation link?

A single user can join up to 100 servers on Discord. So, if you cannot join any server via a valid invitation link, then check whether you do not cross this limit.

Can you join a server with an expired invitation link?

No, you cannot join any server with an expired link. The invitation link is more likely to expire after passing a considerable time or after a specified number of uses (as fixed by the owner). You have to request the Admin to send you a new invitation link to be able to join the server.
