Timing your Cron Job
In order to correctly set Bluehost's servers to perform a desired task in the form of a cron at a specific "local" time, you will need to find the system time of your server and compare that to your "local time". Subtract or add the difference.
Note: You can check the current time, as well as the GMT, at http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/to/mst/index.htm
