Are you able to run that bot using Django or Bottle? If so, there are tutorials for setting up either, but if not, I'd recommend https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-16-04 after you launch a base Ubuntu 16.04 Droplet. You can then use guides to install other necessary requirements.

When you start a new server, there are a few steps that you should take every time to add some basic security and give you a solid foundation. In this guide, we'll walk you through the basic steps necessary to hit the ground running with Ubuntu 16.04.
