How to add a bot to a discord server 2021

Adding a discord is a piece of cake until you mess up some complicated setting. Well, I will tell you all the ways that you can install the discord bots on the server. 

First of all, you have to find the bot that you need. I have detailed how to find bots as per your requirement in the above heading section so don’t forget to check it once. 


When you have found the bot as per your requirement then you have to find the button to add or invite the bot on your discord server. As each bot has its own dedicated websites where the documentation about the commands and other FAQs asked by people are written. This dedicated website homepage contains the link to add the discord or invite the discord bot on your server. Sometimes these buttons are present in the exact center of the homepage and also sometimes these buttons are hiding in the top left or right bar. Look for those buttons and invite the bot on your server. 


So on inviting the bot on your server if you are not logged in to your discord account, it will ask you first of all login and if you are logged in then it will ask you to select the server in which you want your discord bot to be added into. 


Once you have selected the server and hit on the continue button then a new page will open up asking you to provide sufficient permission to the discord bot. These permissions are very important for the bot to work properly but you must go through the permissions. 

Many times the bot is required to have administrator-level permissions which means the creator of the boy who has the bot token has become the administrator of your server. That’s why it is very important that you only provide administrator access to the bot only when the bot has a reputation and is working on a good number of servers, it means that the bot is trustworthy to be installed in our own servers.  

So till now, you have gone through the permission access that you are providing to the discord bot. Don’t worry if you did not provide all the conditions to the bot you will always have the option to provide them the sufficient permissions when you have added the bot on the discord server. Click on the continue button and the bot will be added to the server.


Many times the bot is inactive until they are set up properly, there are many ways to set up the bot you can do it from their dashboard pages or you can do it with the help of commands. There must be sufficient information that will be available on the documentation pages on their website to how to use the bots and how to activate the bot. Go through their documentation and YouTube videos and you will be good to go. Also, if you are facing some problem that is not available at any place then you can join their support server. Every bot has its own support services where developers of the bot are joined and community members who have experience in running the bot can help you. You can find these support servers on the homepage of the bot websites.
