Webpush notifications in conjunction with server monitoring allows administrators or users to be alerted when their server is down, or experiencing an issue. It can also send users information after their server is running again. Webpush notifications make it possible for users to be monitored in real-time, and can help prevent any downtime or outages.

A "web push notification" is a notification sent from a website to a user's browser, even when the website is not actively open. These notifications typically appear in the form of small pop-ups or messages that appear on the user's screen even when the browser is not open in the foreground.
Here are some important features of web push notifications:
Permissions: Before a website can send push notifications, the user must give the website permission to do so. Once approved, the website can send push notifications even if the webpage is not actively visited.
Push Service: To send push notifications, the website uses a push service. This is a service provided by browsers to manage and deliver notifications. Some common browsers that support Web Push are Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari.
Message Content: Push notifications may have different content depending on the type of website and notification settings. For example, they can alert you to new news, offers, updates, social media notifications or other relevant information.
Cross-Platform: Web push notifications are cross-platform, meaning they work on different devices and operating systems as long as the browser supports the corresponding functionality.
Interaction: Users can interact with push notifications by clicking on the notification. This may result in the associated web page being opened or a specific action being taken on the website.
It is important to note that the use of web push notifications affects user privacy. This is why websites must ask for user permission before sending push notifications. If the user agrees, they can control the notifications and also revoke the permission later.
Web push notification integration is a strategy used by many websites and online services to increase user engagement, communicate important information, and drive users back to the site.
