Can I use Glitch to create Discord bots?

I know “Discord help” is the name of the category, but I’ve heard the Glitch dislikes Discord bots due to people using things like UptimeRobot to constantly ping Glitch. Members of a server for Discord Bot List told me to not use Glitch since it’s incompatible with Discord and they say that “free hosting is bad”. I just need some help on whether or not I’m allowed to use Glitch to host and create a Discord bot, how else I can host the bot if Glitch doesn’t allow it, and if I can, then how will I be able to fully utilize Glitch?

Using ping services with Glitch is banned.

If you want 24/7 bot hosting with Glitch you’ll need to upgrade to the Membership Plan.

If you don’t want to do that (or are unable to) you can check out https://repl.it or https://heroku.com.

Pinging services are banned.

You’ll need to use the bad other services (see this article for how to solve, and also why you shouldn’t)

edit: ah yes, why glitch is so better.

Anyways, you can upgrade to private your project and get 24/7 up time. Plus Glitch will like you if you do :sparkling_heart:

That could violate section j. Infrastructure Intergity in the ToS as that could be considered stress on Glitch’s servers.

Self hosting a discord bot isn’t a bad idea. All you need is your computer.

Ok I shall stop with the images
*Glitch footer 2.0

And all you actually need for hosting is a raspberry pi, on 24/7
