Question

How to host a Discord.py bot? (PaaS not IaaS)

Hello I was doing some googling on how to host my Discord.py got and came across this question which seems to be suggested that the OP use a dedicated server (IaaS) subscription/service and I was wondering how I could run my python bot from a PaaS service as I would prefer not to have to deal with securing a virtual server.

Digital Ocean’s PaaS offering is called “App Platform”, it can be used to run your python bot without managing the actual droplet beyond a few key parts.
