Why doesn't Stack Exchange allow users to create private sites or communities?


1 Answer 1


Stack Overflow has this feature, but it is part of the Stack Overflow for Teams program, allowing teams to create private communities. If you are interested, you can create a team for free.

Unfortunately, this feature is not currently available on other Stack Exchange sites.
