Web-based or online cron jobs are used for two main reasons: First, you want to automate something you do often or infrequently so you don't forget. Second, you might have a CPU intensive script or program to run and you want to do it when site traffic is low. Cron services aren't always available on free (and sometimes paid) web hosting services, and furthermore crontab is a real headache to setup and run correctly. If you don't have cron on your hosting account or don't want to write a crontab entry, then Cronless makes it EASY to setup a cron job online!

Why Setup A Cron Job?

You might setup a cron job to:

  • Backup a database.
  • Reset game data, like gold stashes, monsters, buildings, etc. on a regular basis
  • Ensure an RSS feed is always up to date
  • Run monthly billing scripts
  • Automate your Tweets
  • Perform cleanup tasks on a site
  • Whatever you need!

Website Monitoring

What is it worth to you to know when your website went down? Would you like to be notified mere MOMENTS after it happens? How about when your email servers stop responding? Cronless offers a premium monitoring service where we can alert you if your site or server is offline moments after it goes offline. Our site monitoring also offers uptime percentage and outage count, along with a website badge you can post to brag to your customers about your reliability.

What Others Are Saying About Cronless:

Before I discovered Cronless, I kept messing around for days trying to get the cron jobs on my hosting account to work. And when all was set I started thinking, what if my site goes down, how will I be notified?

Thats where I needed Cronless to do the monitoring for me. Easy to configure, and always there when you need it.
