WP Cron – the native WP cron feature is built into every WordPress installation and runs in the background. It is triggered every time the page is loaded by the admin or user.

External Cron – this is a bit more challenging configuration at first, but it is very easy to set up. It will require access to the cPanel of your hosting. If you don’t know how to access your cPanel, please consult the hosting support. Every decent hosting provider should offer a cron job. If they don’t provide access to cron jobs, then, you have two options.
Change the hosting, or, use external Cron Job services like Easy Cron
