For most sites, the built-in, automated cron feature should be sufficient.
Note, however, that cron tasks will only be executed when there are site
visitors. You can enable the built-in cron feature at:
Administer > Configuration and modules > Development > Maintenance mode

To do this, visit the page "cron.php", which executes maintenance tasks on
behalf of installed modules. The URL of the cron.php page requires a "cron
key" to protect against unauthorized access.
Each cron key is automatically generated during installation and is specific
to your site. The full URL of the page, with cron key, is available in the
