if I deploy my replit using static can i host a bot application?
Or you can somehow get a server that keeps replit open so that your replit.dev url stays up, but if you do that why not host locally?
oh sorry so deploying a replit is only for websites
not entirely, deploying is free for static HTML repls, and cost money for everything else, like your discord bot.
if i were to want to host a discord bot witch one would i use/ what would i do?
You should pay for deployments, or move to an alternative, such as Glitch or Hop.io. Do note that none of them have as many features (including a powerful IDE) as replit.
For Discord bots, it’s recommended* you use Reserved VMs.
*And by that I mean you probably have to
Autoscale would be nice (only pay for the usage) but it doesn’t work for bots.
You can only chose Reserved VM
