How to add bots to a Discord Server

Discord is a completely free messaging application that allows users to participate in group audio and video calls. Discord is unique in that it has the ability to have both public and private servers from many different communities across the globe. Anyone who has a Discord server has a lot of options to customize it and create great features for their community. Bots are one of these great features. By adding bots to your Discord server, you can build a safe, secure, and welcoming online space for your community to exchange messages, stream videos, play games and more.

How to add bots to a Discord Server?

At first, it may seem a pretty difficult and long process, but like anything, once you've done it a few times, it will be like second nature. So, persevere, and you will not regret it.

First of all, you'll need to make sure you have Manage server permissions. If you want to have bots on your Discord server, then you need to have manage server permissions of the server you want to add a bot to. Makes sense, doesn't it? If the server is yours, this is pretty straightforward. However, if you are not the owner, ensure you get permission before doing this. So here are the steps to do this:

Find a Discord bot using a bot list

You can use any Discord bot list, but in this example we will be using Disforge. First of all you can find any bot you need by using the search feature, enter a search term such as "Moderation" and you'll see a list of Discord moderation bots like mee6. After clicking on the listing you will see a button to add the bot to your server, this button will lead to Discords auth page. After clicking through the bot should now be in your server!

What Are Discord Bots?

Bots are the shorthand name for robots and are computer programs designed to interact with people and occasionally other bots online to execute particular functions automatically. Ever clicked on a site and a webchat spoken to you immediately? Well, that's an example of a bit. Bots can be used for a variety of different reasons. On Discord, bots are used to provide a range of features for the community on the server where they, for all intents and purposes, live! Some bots are productive, others not so much. One example is that bots can moderate members of the community to try and make your server more welcoming.
