A cron job is a command, that runs conveniently in the background on a predefined period and it also runs a script within a website hosting account. There are no limitations regarding what the script can be - PHP, Bash, Perl, etcetera, what it can do, or what exactly the file extension should be. A few examples are mailing a regular report with the end user activity on a specified website, creating a routine backup or deleting the content inside a particular folder. These kinds of tasks or some other script can be executed on intervals specified by the user - every couple of minutes, hours or days, and even once a month as well as once a year depending on the particular intent. Using cron jobs to improve various aspects of administrating a website saves considerable time and efforts.

Cron Jobs in Shared Web Hosting

If you get any of our shared web hosting plans, you can set up cron jobs with a few clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel even when you have not done that previously. Hepsia is quite easy to use, so instead of writing numbers and asterisks on particular positions, which is the typical method to make a cron job, you will be able to select the minutes, hours or days a given script needs to be run using simple drop-down navigation. This is done in your Cron Jobs section of the Control Panel and, of course, you can always use the first method too, in case you're skilled enough and you prefer it. In both cases, you will also have to type in the path to the script which will be executed and the path to the PHP, Python or Perl system files inside your account. The last mentioned is included in the Control Panel and you're able to copy/paste it, yet if you experience any difficulties, you can get in touch with your technical support team.

Cron Jobs in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to use cron jobs for any of your sites and you have a semi-dedicated server account from our company, it will not take you more than a couple of clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to do that. Setting up a new cron job is really simple and you'll be able to add one from the Advanced section of Hepsia where you will find a box to enter two things - the path to the programming language system files which you can find in the Server Information section (PHP, Perl, Python) and the path to the particular script that you need the cron job to run. The final step is to decide how often the cron will run and we've got a really user-friendly interface for that, so by using drop-down menus you will be able to pick the interval in days, hours or minutes. If you are more tech-savvy or used to the particular standard, although more advanced way to assign a cron interval through digits and asterisks, you can use this solution as well.
