Websockets and webhooks enable real-time communication between a client and a server. Websockets are a full-duplex communication protocol that allows bi-directional communication between the client and the server. WebSockets are better suited for applications that require frequent communication, such as notifications or alerts. Webhooks are a one-way communication protocol which only allows the server to send data to the client. Websockets can be more difficult to scale because they require server to maintain many open connections.
