The method below, because it is easy, has limitations and does not allow the creation of very complex and customized bots.
Knowing that, check out a quick and easy tutorial below on how to create a bot on Discord:
STEP 1 - First step you need to log into your Discord, access the Discord Developer Portal and click on the left menu, select “Applications” right in the first option.
STEP 2 - On the Applications tab, click on the blue button that says “New Application".
STEP 3 - Now a text box will open. Type in the “Name” field the name you want to choose for your Discord bot and click “Create“. I need to warn you that you must be logged in and have verified your e-mail account, otherwise you will not be able to pass this step.
STEP 4 - In the next window, click on the option “Bot” logo in the left menu and click on the blue button written “Add Bot".

How to Add Roles to Your Bot on Discord
STEP 1 - After creating the bot, you need to add the functions it can do on your Discord server. First, go to the BotGhost website and select “Login with Discord“. Then click on the “Authorize"
The platform may ask you to enter your server Token, for this you need to paste it in the designated field. Usually when you log into your account, it will recognize your bot automatically.
STEP 2 - With the bot logged in, browse the available functions and enable the ones you want in your bot.
You'll notice that some functions are Premium, so you'll have to pay to use them. But BotGhost contains a pretty wide range of free options for you to add to your bot:
- Moderation: warnings, invites, suggestions, kicks, bans, mutes, help, clearing messages, assigning roles, etc.
- Messages: welcome, farewell and general announcements.
- Auto-moderation: banning specific words, links, invites, too many mentions, too many emoticons, etc.
- Creation of commands with specific effects.
- Meme creation.
- Search engine.
In each function you can customize the tool the way you prefer, save the changes when exiting the menu of each function.
All your bot information will be in the Discord Developer Portal, in the menu “General Information” as the information of: public key, ID, terms and services and description and etc),
What are Discord Bots?
Bots are simply computer programs that interact with humans (and sometimes other bots) to perform certain functions automatically. A website that has a useful chat window opens immediately offering to talk to you about your product or service; this is a bot. If you use Reddit, you will see bot interactions (beep! Boop!) all the time.
Bots can be useful or annoying, depending on their purpose, design, and how they are deployed. On Discord, bots provide a variety of productive and not-so-productive features to the community on the server where they “live”. You can add bots to your Discord server that help moderate members or make your server a little more unique and fun.
For example, there are bots that play music, bots that offer fun memes on request, bots that fetch your game stats for you, and bots that play a loud horn sound on the channel when asked.
