A cron job is a command, which functions conveniently in the background on a pre-set period and it also executes a script inside a hosting account. There won't be any limits in regard to what the script is - PHP, Bash, Perl, etcetera, what it could do, or what exactly the file extension will be. Some examples are supplying an everyday report with all of the client activity within a specified site, generating a routine backup or deleting the files in a particular folder. These types of tasks or any other script can be executed on time intervals chosen by the end user - each couple of minutes, hours or days, and even every month as well as once per year according to the particular goal. Working with cron jobs to speed up diverse aspects of managing a website saves a lot of time and efforts.
