Auto backup cron job limits on reseller account

asked Dec 31, 2013 in General by validnet (1,140 points)
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
