Is always on working?

I have developed a telegram bot in python which retrieves some information from an API periodically, processes it and sends it as a telegram message. It also has a flask web server which is queried every 5 minutes by the UptimeRobot. I use the hacker plan. The repl is boosted and is always on. Despite being an always on repl, the repl gets stopped after a few hours. Is it by design?

It usually works, but it occasionally will stop and restart, every so often.

@InvisibleOne In my case, its just stopping the program periodically. Not Restarting. Is there any workaround to make it restart and not stop the repl?

If your using Uptimebot it shouldn't let the repl stop, I think this is replit's problems and not yours, use the get help button and explain the issue, usually they fix it within a week or sometimes two if it's a big problem. @PSaiSurya

No sometimes Replit unexpectedly restarts
It normally works 24/7 though
