Need to ping a HTTPS website using a chrome extension

Hi so i am trying to create a chrome extension which pings a HTTP/HTTPS page in a loop. initially i am trying to create a add on which pings it for testing. I understand that i cant ping via a ping.html file form manifest.json. i am unable to call a PHP/JS file which can ping it for me. is there some way to do this ? PHP method would be preferred bu JS will do too. I dont even need the result back from ping. i am monitoring the pings via Wireshark but all google search in vain so far.

Thanks in advance.
