  1. Hello,
    I was wonder where I can best host a discord bot, I tried home-hosting however that didn't really work out for me. I would like cheap and realiable.


    EDIT: Disregard my signature ;)
  2. Message me on discord: runconnor #0814
  3. Contacted.
  4. Use a droplet from digitalocean or use a raspberrypi

  5. That's very expensive for just a bot...

    I suggest buying the cheapest vps you find, anything should do honestly. However, from personal experience, if hosting a java bot, make sure to have more than 512mb ram.

  6. time4vps seems to be cheap..

  7. How many java bots do you recommend to host on one raspberry pi 3b at a time?
  8. depend on your device, like 2-3 i think

  9. Discord is basically a combination of skype and teamspeak, but better in many aspects. many people on the forums resorted to only having discord as a way of contact (or PM's). Would recommend getting it
  10. I signed up for a github students liscense and with it it gives a code to get the cheapest droplet plan for free for 8 months. Not sure how much ram though.
  11. 512MB ram.
  12. I recommend 256gb of ram as that should be almost enough.

    I don't have any real experience with Discord bots... but if it's in Java and it's not going to be used on tons of servers, I would guess any small 256MB - 512MB VPS would do just fine. RamNode has $8/quarterly 256MB RAM VPS.

  17. Don’t host a discord bot from ovh
  18. And why? You should have a reason for that

  19. My friend host's a discord bot on his Pi it works fine, I think you can run 2 on them as they are not that resource intensive.

    I'm a little late, but I'd like to share my knowledge. I'd recommend getting a KVM VPS from somewhere like OVH. I would stay away from OpenVZ for Discord bots.
