A cron job is an automatic task, that executes a particular action - generally running some script in the hosting account. The task is planned, so that it will run on a regular basis - weekly, daily, hourly and so on. There are many reasons to employ a cron job for your websites. For example, you may get regular reports how many site visitors have signed up on your site, a temporary folder can be emptied automatically every week or a backup of your content may be generated in a separate folder in your web hosting account. Employing cron jobs can help you with the administration of your websites because you'll be able to get several things completed automatically and get reports for them, rather than spending precious time and efforts to complete them yourself.

Cron Jobs in Cloud Hosting

Our simple to use Hepsia Hosting Control Panel will help you to create cron jobs without difficulty. If you don't have previous experience with these kinds of things, you'll find a very user-friendly interface where you could plan the execution of your cron, picking one or several time frame options - minutes, hours, days, months, or specific days of the week. The sole thing you will have to enter yourself is the actual command to be run, which consists of the path for PHP, Perl and Python scripts and also the path to the actual file that will be executed. More skillful users may also make use of the Advanced mode of our instrument and enter by hand the execution time using numbers and asterisks. If you need more crons than your cloud hosting plan lets you have, you can upgrade this attribute in increments of five with a few mouse clicks.
