Onyx is a managed high-availability platform. We monitor the servers and ensure that your site is always available and online. We monitor the resources sites are using and can scale the containers if required to add more capacity.
Wordpress is configured to auto-install updates by default.
Yes. There are plugins that allow you to configure what 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 If the sites software versions become out of date you may be exposed to security risks.

There are no specifically banned plugins - but we would draw your attention to the Onyx Terms & Conditions regarding abuse.
Your package includes backups, but we understand you may wish to take your own additional backups. We encourage this, but please ensure you use a plugin that saves your backups off-site. Your Onyx plan is for web hosted files only - it is not for backup or other file storage.
