With our shared storage architecture, load balanced LXC containers and site data replication, Application-Level High Availability is provided as standard across all Onyx plans. All sites run from at least two containers so should one fail, you’ll always have another online.
The Onyx platform ensures WordPress sites are served ultra-fast by utilising enhanced caching technologies. We use NGINX edge caching for your files and a Redis memory cache for database queries.

Wordpress is configured to auto-install updates by default.
Yes. There are plugins that allow you to configure what is any updates happen automatically (Wordpress core, minor/security updates, plug-in, theme & translation).
You can also add the following to your wp-config.php file - which will disable core updates. define( 'AUTOMATIC_UPDATER_DISABLED', true );
However, we strongly recommend not disabling automatic updates. If the sites software versions become out of date you may be exposed to security risks.
