Cron at web hosting


The crucial thing that was missing from our web hosting was cron – a tool for periodically running scripts on the web. Now it is finally here.

For each web host it is possible to set up regular script execution. For one web host, there may be max. 3 records cron, the shortest possible period is 1 hour.

The option of more frequent triggering and more entries is being prepared, it will be an additional service.

You can manage the cron for each webhost in the customer administration in the webhost details.

For cron it is possible to set:

  • start-up period within one day – 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, 6 hours, 12 hours
  • range of hours in the day 0-23
  • days of the week
  • date from – to

Almost anything can be defined by combinations of these parameters. This cron can only be used to call a script located on our server in the respective webhost (it cannot be used to call URLs that are directed outside your website or outside the respective webhost).
