  1. Server Health: Show Apache CPU Usage per domain

    It is difficult to identify the offending website, and this would help tracking it down

    • Move domains between subscriptions

      This is a feature that needs to be brought to the Plesk Control Panel.

      This request has been outstanding since Plesk 10:
      http://kb.parallels.com/en/113938

      This wasn't possible in Plesk 11.5.
      http://kb.parallels.com/en/121606

      It still does not appear possible in Plesk 12.

      At the very least, breaking a domain out into its own subscription would be a good first step.

      Search words:
      I cannot move domain to another subscription
      move webspaces
      move a domain within a multi-domain subscription
      multi-domain subscription
      migration manager
      transfer a domain
      separate subscription
      split subscription
      break out domain from subscription

      • Customer email notification when mailbox quota exceeded

        It would be a very useful feature to have an email automatically injected to a customers mailbox when their quota is close to the limit and another when the mailbox quota has been exceeded with advice (customisable) on how to resolve the problem.

        Sometimes clients are unaware/forget their quota and if accessing via outlook/smartphone etc they are not aware of the limit being reached. This can result in several days without emails or emails being rejected with a "mailbox full" autoresponder. Ironically this means anyone sending emails to the client are aware the mailbox is full but the client is…

        • Multiple backup rules or more options

          At this moment, you can set only 1 rule to make backups (daily, weekly, or monthly). My idea is to make multiple backup rules (ex. which daily backups should be deleted) or simply make more backup options.

          Ex:
          I want to make daily backup and delete every older than 2 days, except one day of the week and one day of the month.

          ex interface:
          Make [daily/weekly/monthly] backup and keep only:
          [n] daily backups (enabled only for daily backups)
          [n] weekly backups (enabled for daily and weekly backups)
          [n] monthly backups (enabled for daily, weekly and monthly backups)

          So, if…

                Plesk currently offers two high-quality anti-viruses and other related services like WAF. Integrating another anti-virus solution is an expensive undertaking, so we’d like you to let us know which ClamAV features are missing in anti-viruses and services already available in Plesk. This will help us properly evaluate and prioritize this request.

              • Backup into Cloud

                http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=262215

                There are quite many free and commercial cloud storages at the day where user could keep their backup. But many storages wouldn't offer FTP access. It may be helpful if Plesk could transparently upload backups into a customer's Dropbox, Amazon or Azure account.

                • ActiveSync support on Roundcube and Horde (Push)

                  ActiveSync is a necessary tool for most businesses today as it allows them to have everything in one place and stream it automatically to every device they use. Users with mobile phones and tablets can easily sync their contacts, calendars, notes and emails via activesync and users with outlook and other mail clients can sync contacts, mail and perhaps notes.

                    • Change admin username

                      It should be possible for the admin user to change his user login name. The name "admin" is not very secure, because it's easiert to hack via brute force. The hackers know, the name is "admin". If the user would be able to change his login name, it would increase the security of Plesk Panel.

                        We have serious doubts this function can really increase server security:
                        1) Plesk has built-in protection against brute-force on login – it will lock the login form. So no one can try multiple attempts
                        2) Arbitrary login name adds very little guess-complexity to a proper password. If you have concerns for your login brute-forced – add another 5-7 characters into your password and feel safe.

                        As changed login name is still very likely to be some sort of vocabulary word or derived from your other account name – this function would only give a false sense of better security. Your security strength is in complex password, not in a complex login name. If you have one good password, you don’t need to treat login as your “second password” – one good password is enough.

                        As for concerns that default password requirement is set in “weak”, that fail2ban module is not…

                      • Spam configuration per subscription or domain

                        Now you have two opportunities to set the spamfilter - server-wide or individual. It would be very handy if the admin or the customer could set the spamfilter for the whole subscription or/and for the whole domain.

                          • support for HTTP Strickt Transport Security / HSTS

                            I'm wondering if Plesk also will implent HTTP Strickt Transport (or HSTS) Security in the GUI. It's an extra layer of security for sites who need to be extra secure.

                            It's being done with a special header (mod_headers for Apache) and a TLS connection. The client (browser) can then verify if the server is the real server and not a man-in-the-middle server/attack.

                            It's as simple as adding the following code to the vhost config (HTTPS only!):

                            Apache:
                            Header always set Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=31536000; includeSubDomains"

                            Nginx:
                            add_header Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=31536000; includeSubDomains";

                                  Hello,

                                  Plesk supports PHP7 which is comparable to HHVM performance in many tests and in some tests even outperforms HHVM. We are recommending PHP7

                                  This suggestion will remain open for a while, to hear your additional considerations in favor of HHVM

                                  Thank you

                                  The let's encrypt extension is great, except... it doesn't work for me: It doesn't add domain aliases. I have domains like "typing-error.de", "typing-eror.de", "typing-errror.de", "typing-error.com" etc. (you get the idea). As-is, only the primary domain is added to the certificate.

                                  • that you adapt the main domain name of an IP as the myhostname for POSTFIX or QMAIL.

                                    Most of RBLS are checking the SMTP Banner and currently only the first domain name is being used. To reduce scamming or to prevent being blacklisted you should apply myhostname with the according domain name.

                                      Make separate limits on Mail and Web disk spaces, so that hoster could sell one limit for web (i.e. 2Gb) and another limit for mail (i.e. 10x2Gb mailboxes)

                                      • Have multiple IPs in one subscription

                                        Make each site able to run on its own IP.

                                        If you would support this feature, please please tell us in the comments how you would use it - i.e. for SSL

                                          The idea is under review now.

                                          We would like to learn from you how you will use it. i.e. different domains on different IPs for SSL (but did you know about SNI?), or for subdomains? for aliases? Why an alias would need another IP?

                                          Thanks for all your answers and votes
