If you run your own Discord server you are likely familiar with the problems of trolls and bad actors. One person with bad intentions can completely ruin the vibe of the whole server.
As a server owner, it’s your job to manage these people and ensure they are promptly banned. You may be wondering if you can IP Ban someone on Discord meaning they can’t join the server from other accounts. Let’s find out.
Can You IP Ban Someone On Discord
Yes, you can IP ban someone on Discord. When you ban someone from your server, Discord automatically applies an IP ban to that user. This means that the user will be unable to create new accounts and join your server again.
How To IP Ban Someone On Discord
If you want to ban someone from your server and apply an IP Ban to them follow the steps below:
- Open Discord and navigate to your server
- Find the user you want to ban from your server
- Right Click on their username and click on “Ban [Username]”
- A Pop up will appear where you are asked to provide a reason for the ban. Select the option you think is most appropriate. Select how far back you want to delete the user’s message history. Click on the “Ban” button.
You have now successfully banned this person from your Discord server. They will be IP Banned meaning they will not be able to access the server from other accounts.
What Is An IP Ban On Discord
An IP ban is a ban applied to a user’s IP Address rather than their account. This means that if the user tries to access a server they are banned from on a different account they will be denied.
Discord automatically resorts to an IP Address ban which helps to keep communities much cleaner and keep unwanted users out of servers.
If you have received an IP ban you will be unable to join that server on other accounts or even devices when you are connected to the Wi-Fi you received the ban on.
Can You Avoid An IP Ban On Discord
While an IP ban sounds quite serious and hard to get around it isn’t. If you find someone keeps joining your server on new accounts they are likely circumventing their IP Ban by utilizing a VPN.
A VPN allows you to appear as if you are in a different location on a different IP Address. This tricks discord into thinking it is a new user, allowing that person back into your server.
That is everything there is to know about Discord bans. Hopefully, this tutorial has helped you to ban any bad actors on your Discord server. You and your community can finally be at peace without the trolls.
