Cron jobs are timetabled tasks, which are executed on regular time intervals set by the user and they also execute scripts developed in numerous programming languages - PHP, Perl, Bash, etcetera. Determined by what actually a cron needs to do, it may run each and every minute, every week or even annually. There're numerous handy applications to make use of cron jobs in your everyday administration of a website. For instance, a backup copy of the whole site can be generated daily or maybe once a week or an e-mail message with all new signups for the day may be sent to a specific e-mail. Such automatic options will make the management of any website much easier. There are no specific file types that can be allowed / forbidden, so every script can be run by using a cron job.

Cron Jobs in Web Hosting

When you get any of our web hosting plans, you will be able to create cron jobs with only a few mouse clicks using your Hepsia Control Panel even when you have not done that previously. Hepsia is really simple to use, so instead of entering numbers and asterisks on certain places, which is the usual technique to assign a cron job, you can select the minutes, hours or days some script has to be run using uncomplicated drop-down navigation. The latter is done from the Cron Jobs part of the Control Panel and, naturally, you can always use the first method as well, in case you are skilled enough and you prefer it. In both cases, you'll have to type in the path to the script that'll be executed as well as the path to the PHP, Python or Perl system files in your account. The last mentioned is included in the Control Panel and you'll be able to copy/paste it, yet if you encounter any kind of issues, you can always get in touch with your tech support team.
