How does a web site work?

Let me explain, a Discord Bot needs a ping every 5 minutes.

A website does not need this, right?

@Angaro when you say “needs a ping” do you mean that a bot on Glitch needs to be pinged (from an external source) every 5 minutes (to stay awake, for example?) or do you mean that it needs to ping something else every 5 minutes?

hi @Angaro! websites on glitch that aren’t doing tasks on their own or need to immediately react to a ping (much like bots do) do not need to be kept awake - they’ll wake up when someone accesses it.
