We provide reliable remote cron services, 24/7/365.
A lot of CGI scripts out there require access to "crontab", the unix scheduling program, in order to perform routine updates and maintenance. Are you using such scripts, but your website host won't give you access to a crontab? Worse, is your web server running an operating system without a built-in scheduler?
We used to have this same problem and we sat down and came up with a fast, easy solution, and had it developed. HostedCron can help you with the automation that programs need most, a scheduling system that automatically runs the maintenance and cleanup scripts when you need them run, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Our system is simple to use, with a graphical user interface that even a novice will find easy to understand, and without the archaic looking lines and methods of conventional crontab schedulers.
The Best Part?
We are so confident that our system can be used by anyone that we allow you to signup for FREE to look around and make sure our service will do what you need it to do.
About Hosted Cron
I have used many hosts in the past 5 years and I am one of those guys who likes to automate everything on my sites to best deliver the best service with the least work. This has served me well allowing me enough time to build new sites and grow my busines.
The main problem that I kept running into was that by using less expensive hosts, I often found that the automation programs or scripts that I used on different types of sites required scheduled maintenance. Now that in itself is not a problem, but then I found out that the host I was using did not allow users to run crontab's. This made my scheduling tasks extremely difficult, if not impossible.
This is where my frustration came into play. I finally hired someone to make me a set of scripts to perform scheduled tasks just like a real crontab would do. But I also had them make the graphical user interface so that it was simple for any novice to figure out.
Once he had the scripts built to do exactly what I needed, and I had a chance to look them over, it dawned on me that many other people must have the same problems I was facing and would benefit greatly from my creation.
Thus was this site created.
