Social Media

People create Discord channels every day. If you are looking for a guide on how to make a welcome channel, you’ve come to the right place. 

We will share an easy way for you to make your welcome channel. If you are new to Discord, you probably have no idea how to make a welcome channel that would allow every person to join in by clicking on the server. 

We will also share a cool trick to make a default welcome message. This message will always pop up when a person enters the channel like a welcoming message, for example. You can customize the message as you see fit. You can also enable it to pop up for one specific person. 

Making Your Welcome Channel in Discord

There are two options you can make a welcome channel with an automated welcome message. For the first option, you can script a bot to do it for you. But, if you decide to script your own bot, your computer will have to be running 24/7 to run the script. You would also need basic Java knowledge. 

But, since this is a more complicated option, we have decided to share a simpler way. Instead of making bots, you can use them to do it for you. Follow the steps below, and you will make a welcome channel in no-time. 

Step 1

The first thing you are going to do is open up your Discord, select your server and right-click. Select “Create a Channel.”

Step 2

Give your channel a name. It can be anything. Once you’ve typed in the name, go ahead and select “Create Channel” like in the screenshot below. You can also enable the “Private” option. If you enable this option, only the people you give the link to your channel can join. But, if you disable it, everyone can join. Disable it so that anyone can select your server. 

Step 3

Now your channel is ready. Go to MEE6. This is a dashboard that allows you to give your channel a more creative touch. You can give your members roles, create commands, or add messages. You are in complete control of your channel. 

To make a welcome channel on Discord, you can sign up here. You can use other platforms as well. They too have the same features. 

After you sign up, you can go to “Plugins” and select “Enable” on the welcome feature. This is the feature that will give all the new members in your channel a warm welcome. 

Step 4

Now, go ahead and make your automated welcome message. To do it, select your channel first. Then, write a message for all the members to see, or you can toggle a private message targeted to only one particular member. When you are done writing your welcome message, click on the button in the right corner to save the changes. 

Step 5

This is the final step. Go to your Discord and enter your channel. The welcome message will pop right up. See the screenshot below. 

That’s it! Now you know how to make your own welcome channel in Discord.


If you want to moderate your welcome channel, you can always use bots. You can give your channel a personal touch. That’s why we made these easy steps for you to follow. You will get the hang of it pretty fast.
