How do I format a hard drive to exFAT

I'm currently trying to format a hard drive to exFAT. It's not my main one it will be used for sharing files on my home network. Apparently you can do it just by right clicking the drive and choosing format however I just have the NTFS option, I don't have exFAT. Is there something else I need to do or get so I can format it?
