In order to make your Bot answering to requests from your Telegram users you need to manually request for updates to the Bot API or you can register a WebHook to automatically being called once updates are available.

The latter is a better and more efficient solution.

That being said, the quickest and easiest way to set a WebHook for your Bot is to issue a GET request to the Bot API (it’s enough to open an url in your browser).
