Although it connects to Twitch via its IRC channel, it is not really an "IRC bot" in the traditional sense of the word, so I wrote to a few vendors that I 've found here to see if this would be allowed. TurnkeyInternet quickly replied that this would not be allowed (with an absolutely crazy amount of unrelated advertising texts). The other provider I wrote, Forwardweb.net, did not respond at all.
Does any one have any suggestions for a provider? It's a really basic chat bot to use in Twitch streaming, used only by myself and a few friends. The script is lightweight and uses few resources. It is an integral part of the TOS of the Twitch and Twitch APIs. I use it on a basic Linux machine at home for a year, no problem, but I do not want to let the machine run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so I'm looking for a place to host it. I need a basic unmanaged VPS without a control panel, the ones I was looking for cost around $ 5 a month. I would like a supplier with at least a reputation and a record of above average availability time.
