A cron job is an automated task, which executes a specific action - generally executing a script inside a web hosting account. The task is scheduled, therefore it will run regularly - hourly, daily, weekly etc. There are many reasons to employ a cron job for your websites. For example, you may get regular reports how many website visitors have registered on your site, a temporary folder may be emptied automatically per week or a backup of your content can be generated in a separate folder inside your web hosting account. Making use of cron jobs will help you with the management of your websites because it is possible to get a lot of things carried out automatically and have reports about them, as opposed to investing precious time and efforts to complete them by hand.
Cron Jobs in Cloud Hosting
Our intuitive Hepsia Hosting Control Panel will allow you to create cron jobs easily. If you don't have prior knowledge about such matters, you'll find an incredibly user-friendly interface where you could plan the execution of the cron, picking one or several time frame possibilities - months, days, hours, minutes, or particular days of the week. The thing that you will have to type in manually is the actual command to be run, which includes the path for PHP, Perl and Python scripts and the path to the particular file that will be executed. More capable users may also make use of the Advanced mode of our tool and type in manually the execution time with numbers and asterisks. If you need additional crons than your cloud hosting plan allows you to have, you'll be able to upgrade this attribute in increments of five with just a few mouse clicks.
