Periodic jobs

Periodic jobs

Run your PHP scripts at specific intervals – years, months, days, or hours. Convenient if you wish to perform regular clean-ups, system checks, or perform backups – or to send out a reminder. Create as many periodic jobs in the Control Centre as you like at no extra cost.

What are periodic jobs?

The periodic jobs (cron jobs) feature gives you the option to have our systems visit a page or script at configurable intervals. This makes it possible to perform repeating actions – running automatically, so you don't have to do anything actively.

How to set up periodic jobs

Periodic jobs can be set up in the Control Centre through a user-friendly interface. It is possible to run periodic jobs on all your domains hosted on Gigahost, at many different intervals – from once a year down to once every hour.
