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.
