Coming from Plesk, these questions might sound crazy. But why is Cpanel updating itself every night?! It's amazing how on top of things Cpanel is.

Was I that neglected with Plesk?

Plesk would send out a small update like once every 4 months, that's it. No security advisories ever...

I'm really so glad I finally moved over to Cpanel but just want some insight....

Thanks!

In your WHM left menu near the top, check the "Update Config" section. You can disable these to manually update at your own pace, but cPanel updates will still run regardless, just won't update anything.
Yup, I set it to run nightly. I just find it amazing the difference between the two companies.....

Plesk > Could care less about security updates or updates in general
cPanel > Takes it to the opposite extreme(for the good)
