Cron Server IP Change

Hi everyone,

This evening we experienced serious problems with our main cron server. To ensure cron jobs continued to run we provisioned a new cron server. Unfortunately because of this the IP address of the cron server has changed from 72.51.39.51 to 64.34.176.48.

Our apologies for any trouble,
George


Server Status August 14 2012

This evening (8:00pm EST) we experienced problems with our main cron server in our LAX facility.   After careful invetigation we determined we needed to provision an entirely cron new server as the existing server could not be repaired.  Everything should be back to normal.


Server Status February 26 2012

Update 2:18pm EST: Our infrastructure hosting provider PEER1 had an unplanned router outage that caused a large portion of their LAX facility to go down. We deeply apologize for the trouble this caused. Everything should be back to normal.

We are currently experiencing issues with one of our cron servers. We are investigating the problem and will update this post shortly.

Our apologies for the trouble this has caused,

7 Great Years, Looking Forward to #8!

Happy Holidays,

Improved Email Infrastructure

At WebBasedCron we’re big fans of great companies that help solve difficult problems for small businesses. We use many of these companies for WebBasedCron, which ensures the reliability and up-time you’ve come to expect. These companies include PEER1/ServerBeach for our servers, Zendesk for our support ticketing system and now SendGrid for our email infrastructure. SendGrid is a fantastic company that removes the complexity of sending emails and making sure they don’t get caught by spam filters. If you have any comments or questions about any of these companies, just ask.

Take care,
George

Announcing the New WebBasedCron Support Area

Hi everyone,

For a while now we’ve been thinking about how we could improve customer service and help people ask questions and learn more about WebBasedCron quickly and easily. We quickly learned that great tools already existed, and the smartest thing to do was to leverage these tools.

So to build our new Cron Support Area we used an innovative company called Zendesk. Zendesk is built upon the idea that help desk support doesn’t have to be complicated and cumbersome. Companies like Twitter, MSNBC, Scribd, and many more use Zendesk to improve customer service – and now, so do we!

You can use our new Cron Support Area to submit support requests, ask questions in our forums, and more – go ahead and take a look – let us know what you think.

Take care,
George

Our infrastructure hosting provider PEER1 is currently experiencing a network issue in our data center at LAX. The problem occurred at just after 2pm EST. They are aware of the problem and working to fix it now. We will update this post as more information becomes available.

Our apologies for the trouble,

Our Birthday – 5 Years Old, Going on 6

Hi everyone,

This past week we celebrated our 5th birthday. We’ve come a long way from the beginning and I sincerely want to thank our loyal customers for trusting us as their cron hosting provider. Our move to PEER1 Networks in August was a good one. Our stability and up-time since then has been 100% and we don’t expect that to change. We look forward to serving you in the years to come and hope everyone has a safe and happy holidays. All the best in 2010.

Thanks,
George
