Without knowing anything about Discord, it looks like you can create bots in many different frameworks, but a lot of people uses Node.js as their server using the discord.js framework:
So it all depends on which language you code your bot in.

I’m using C# so that wouldn’t really work out

    Okay, if you’re coding in C# or .Net, then you probably need a Windows platform as server, which means DigitalOcean is currently not a recommended host for you.
    I know Microsoft released a .Net server platform for Linux a few months ago, but not sure if it’s available in general or their primary focus is for their Azure platform.
    All in all, if you don’t know anything about Linux, then it’s probably easier to use Microsoft’s Azure platform.

  • You need a Fedora server with .NET Core - you can always refer to the latest info on our wiki page here:

    Since we are talking about Fedora 25 and you probably want csproj support at this point, you would be installing it from Microsoft website (linked from the wiki page) - our packages will be out within a few months.

For everyone that here is coding his bot on C# , use this guide.
