Am I allowed to run bots on droplets? Skype/Discord?

As the title says, I am questioning if I can run any kind of bots on Droplets? A few months back I attempted running a bot, but was disabled. I’ve done some looking around in the hosting of bots and seen some people host bots on DO for skype, discord, etc.

My main question, is this allowed?

Accepted Answer

Yes, you are definitely allowed to run a bots on DigitalOcean Droplets. The only caveat is that the bot needs to follow the terms of service for the platform that it is using. If we receive valid abuse complaints from platforms, they will be passed on to you and failure to resolve the situation may lead to suspension of your account. You can see our own terms of service here.
