What droplet do I use to host a discord bot?

Posted February 25, 2017 7.7k views

Alright, so I recently made a Discord bot using discord.js (node.js), but I have some problems configuring it since I am really new into hosting on Digital Ocean. My questions are:
What Droplet do I pick so I can run my bot? and
How do I configure it so.. I can run my bot. Well.

Any help would be appreciated!

To get started pretty fast, you could use a “One-click app” droplet called “NodeJS 6.9.5 on 16.04” when creating a new droplet.
After that, it’s mainly NodeJS configuration and setup.

Node.js is an open source JavaScript runtime environment for easily building server-side and networking applications. Node.js applications can be run at the command line but this guide focuses on running them as a service using PM2, so that they will automatically restart on reboot or failure, and can safely be used in a production environment.
