SetCronJob offers reliable cron jobs for bloggers

by Sushant Risodkar · 15 comments

Cron jobs is a scheduling program in Unix that can execute your script periodically. Most bloggers need cron jobs to back up their blogs, send emails, RSS feeds, or even auto blogging with WP-o-Matic.

Unfortunately, most web hosting providers disabled or limited cron jobs feature in their hosting services. Some will suspend users accounts if they used too much server resources for cron jobs

The solution for this problem is using online cron jobs services, and recommended one is SetCronJob.

Currently they offer Two type of Options:

  1. Free account – By having a free account you can create 5 cron jobs, running every 10 minutes, enough to automate a blog or website.
  2. Premium Account – You can also pay a small amount (from $5 – $20 for one year) to create up to 40 cron jobs very 5 minutes.

The most excellent thing is their simple control panel: it’s very easy to use!
You can create, edit, save or delete a cron job with just one click!

Right now, you can go to SetCronJob, spend one minute to register a free account, and start creating your cron jobs for FREE!

Great to see you are a satisfied customer of SetCronJob.

Thanks for letting me knw about that site. As a trial I will go for Free Account right now but will go for Premium if I found it worth using it.

Typhoon June 29, 2009 at 6:44 pm

Yup, Matt. That’s the power of Free account. You can check the free service before going for the premium. It helps a lot.

I never do cron jobs because i don’t know how it works and use it, thanks for explaining some information about cron jobs.

Typhoon June 29, 2009 at 6:46 pm

Good to see that you got some information about cron jobs.

Matt July 2, 2009 at 8:16 pm

Looks like another winning option for bloggers, although the term “cron job” makes me giggle…..sounds like something dirty…..LOL 😉

Typhoon July 3, 2009 at 4:07 pm

Nope Cron job isn’t any kind of dirty thing. It’s just most of the bloggers don’t know about it but still are using it silently.

Like many wordpress users backup their blog by using any automatic database backup plugin. That plugin actually is using cron job functionality of scheduling your backups.

Thanks for the link to SetCronJob, I have cron jobs currently running on my site for backups (this is what I’m aware of). I doubt I would pay for this service, but might sign up for the free service and give it a bash as I don’t really have many jobs at this stage.

Good that they offer a free service otherwise you could waste your money if you don’t really like it.

Yup, most of wordpress blogger uses cron jobs in many ways like making automatic backup but most of them don’t know what it is said and what could happen due it’s overuse. Also trying any service for free is always a gr8 deal before going to premium..

Thanks for informing us about cron jobs. Seem helpful and reliable.

akira07 July 29, 2009 at 7:32 am

haha in the first, i think cron jobs is a “jobs” which can earn me money. So i think, the prize premium account of setcronjobs on your commenting contest is so great.
Well, it’s great but i don’t sure i need it for my blogging activities.
But thanks for make me understanding about cron jobs.

Anyway, so premium account mean we can set up cron jobs for 400+ per hour?

Typhoon July 29, 2009 at 5:07 pm

No, Actually there are three types of Premium Account – Silver,Bronze and Gold.

You guys will be getting Gold account which will give you the ability to perform 40 cron jobs in every 5 minutes i.e 480 in 1 hour if my maths is not poor :/ and you will have the account for 1 year.

akira07 July 30, 2009 at 5:18 am

@Typhoon, Yes your math is correct (60/5=12 so 12*40 = 480). Anyway, how many cron jobs you can perform per hour, typhoon? Thanks for the explanation, become more clearly now.

Typhoon July 30, 2009 at 4:42 pm

You are asking again? I said it’s 480..It’s the maximum no. of cron jobs you can perform
