Check for the required permission
Before adding the bot to the server we have to check if we have the required “Manage Server” permission to add and manage bot on that specific server. Not everyone is allowed to add bots to the server and only people with “Administrative” or “Manage Server” rights can add them.
To check if you have the Administrative or Manage Server rights, simply go to your server and click on your Server’s name and select the “Server Settings” option.
After you click on the server settings option a new window will open. From the left-side menu select Roles and Check for “Administrative” or “Manage Server” permission.
If you can’t see the permissions enabled then please contact the Server administrator and ask them for the required permissions.
Once we have all the required permissions to manage the server and to add the Bot now it’s time to look for the websites which can offer us some good custom bots.

If you want a custom bot and you know coding then you can easily build one yourself by using Node.js. But in this tutorial, we will only cover Third party Discord Bot Services.
