A cron job is a command, that runs automatically in the background on a predefined period and it also runs a script inside a hosting account. There won't be any restrictions regarding what the script can be - PHP, Bash, Perl, etcetera, what it can do, or what exactly your file extension will be. Examples are sending a daily report which contains all of the client activity on a specific website, generating a regular backup or erasing the files inside a specific folder. These types of tasks as well as almost every other script can be executed on time intervals picked by the end user - every few minutes, hours or days, and even once per month as well as once per year depending on the particular intent. Working with cron jobs to improve different areas of managing a website saves considerable time and efforts.

Cron Jobs in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You're able to create as many cron jobs as you need if you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account from our company and it doesn't take over a minute to do that. In contrast to various website hosting Control Panels where you need to type commands and use numbers and asterisks on a single line in order to create a cron job, our Hepsia Control Panel comes with a user-friendly interface where you are able to choose how often a cron needs to be executed by using simple drop-down menus to select the minutes, hours, day of the week, etcetera. The only two things which you'll have to enter manually are the folder path to the script file which has to be executed plus the command path to the programming language system files in the account (Perl, Python, PHP). You can copy and paste the aforementioned from the Server Information part of your website hosting Control Panel, which means that it won't take you more than several clicks to create a cron job in your semi-dedicated account.
