Trying to host a twitch bot. Need to make sure it works before upgrading.

I'm trying to host my twitch bot (I'm not even sure if those things are allowed so let me know of that as well) but since it's on the twitch domain I need to upgrade. I want to know if this website can support a twitch bot (which is just a basic irc bot) before I upgrade. Thanks.

If it's something that connects outwards from PythonAnywhere (as opposed to running a server that accepts incoming network connections) then it should be fine. IRC bots are normally outward-connecting things.

Probably the best thing to do is to upgrade and try it -- if it doesn't work you can always downgrade again, and we have a 30-day no-quibble money-back guarantee.

One thing to look out for -- when you upgrade to a paid account, your old consoles will still be running in the "free" mode, so you'll need to restart them. And if you have a web app, it will also need reloading.

Also -- as your bot will presumably be running as a long-running process, you should probably check out this page on how to write programs that keep running even if our console servers are reset for maintenance.

Thank you giles for the detailed response. Glad you guys have that 30 grace period!

No problem :-) Let us know if you have any questions when you try to get it working.
