Auto backup cron job limits on reseller account

Jan 1, 2014 by validnet
Hi all
My host does not allow running any cron jobs for daily or weekly schedules for the auto backups of some clients sites. Do all hosts have such limitations for  reseller accounts? I want to know so I can decide if I should move to another host or perhaps look for another backup solution
Thank you all

from my experience I would say usually yes for  reseller accounts. This might be caused by you not having server root access. You can consider using a third party provider for cron job like  Easycron.com

Here are some hosting providers that you can switch to who don’t impose this limitation HawkHost  and StableHost.
