With serverless application getting very popular recently, just wanted to know what you guys think.

Regular Hosting: Your traditional PHP, Apache, NODEJS hosting package.
Serverless Architecture:You only host your HTML files and then make calls to specific cloud services for resources/computation (naive explanation). E.g Google Firebase, Azure Lambda etc.

Personally i think serverless application are really great if you are building a custom web app with high traffic in mind cause in that case you don't have to worry about migrating or purchasing more servers when traffic get high cause you pay for the amount of resource use/calls you make.

Will like to know what you guys think and how can a web app running on serverless architecture be protected from regular web attacks lile DDOS.
