How do I host my c# Discord Bot on DigitalOcean?

Posted August 18, 2018 4.8k views

Hey, I made a small discord bot for friends and stuff and I want it to be up 24/7, I’ll buy the 5$ droplet.
But the thing is, I’ve never used a vps before and don’t know how to set anything up, I’m guessing it might also have different things to do when it comes to a Discord Bot.
I’m using Visual Studio 2017 to make the bot.
Would be great if I got an answer, thanks.

Hi there,

I would recommend following this step by step tutorial on How To Build a Discord Bot here.

The tutorial shows how to do that with Node.js, but you could use logic and just use any other framework or language.

Discord is a chat application that allows millions of users across the globe to message and voice chat online in communities called guilds or servers. In this tutorial, you will build a Discord bot from scratch, using Node.js and the Discord.js library, which allows users to directly interact with the Discord API. You'll set up a profile for a Discord bot, get authentication tokens for the bot, and program the bot with the ability to process commands, with arguments, from users.
