Do you allow the setup of scheduled tasks?

Yes. WebsitePanel provides an easy to use interface to add and modify scheduled tasks. There are no limits to the number or the nature of the scheduled tasks you create on WSP/Windows.

How can I do to put online my site http://innovactiongroup.com.doghorn.arvixe.com/ more quickly, the first time I click, I have to wait for the ASp.net to finish the compilation. Is it possible to maintain alive the site ? . The first time the compilation last a lot .

This is only done because the app pool recycles after 20 minutes. So, if you have no traffic in 20 minutes, the first load of the website (only in windows, asp .net sites) will be slower as all the compiled code is loaded into the app pool. So, as long as you keep the traffic to one load per 20 minutes you are fine. Unfortunately you would need a VPS/dedicated to increase that value for your site as its done to upkeep the stability of our windows .NET hosting.

I noticed indeed on my control panel that I can schedule a task but none of the task types seem to do what I need. I want to be able to schedule a executable that sends emails from my website every hour. Is this possible?

Thanks!

Unfortunately not. Executing binaries on a shared server is certainly not safe and you would only be able to do that on a VPS by setting it up manually through Windows' scheduled tasks.

@Dries, If you are running ASP.NET you can setup a web handler that will check what emails need to be sent, and then send them out, every time it is launched. You can then use the check website availability task pointed to that handler that will run it on the schedule you desire. Be careful of how long it runs, as it may degrade performance throughout your site.

@Horacio -- You can set up a scheduled task to ping your site every 15 minutes. This imitates you having a visitor, and will reset the 20 minute counter. You can also schedule the task to only run during the business day, if you wanted to conserve resources.

I would like to setup a scheduled task which runs every day at 22:00 hour UTC but what timezone are the schuled tasks in? Do they run UTC time or some local time?
