  1. Ability to show which IP addresses are used by other domains in the pulldown list at Web Hosting Access

    If the account has multiple domains, it is possible to set a dedicated IP belonging to that account among several domains, but in some cases you may want to allocate one IP to one domain. (E.g. when setting reverse DNS lookup)

    Currently, the pulldown list at domains>%domain name%>Web Hosting Access displays both free IP and the IP used in other domains by the same account, but it is not possible to understand whether it is used by other domains or not.
    Suggest to add the possibility to indicate which IP addresses are already used by other domains in the pulldown…

  2. Ability to manage "Smart static files processing" option via Service plan

    It would be good to add the ability to manage "Smart static files processing" option through Service plan settings. Since this option is enabled by default, it might affect some applications.

  4. When Plesk user login/logout must contain more information in Event Manager

    in Event Manager, we can select parameter of "Username" only when user login failed and select parameter of "contact name" only when user completely login/logout. Users is asking me that why we didn't use the same variable (Username or contact name, and I preferred username) and more information should be added for security issue (eq. IP Address)

  5. Better email notifications management through CLI

    Improve the email notifications management through CLI using the "plesk bin notification" command.

    As of now, there are plenty of notifications that can be easily managed in Plesk GUI while it is not possible through that command making it quite hard to manage as the ones that can not be managed through the command itself, need to be modified directly on the Plesk database while in Plesk GUI all (or almost) the notifications are unified under Tools & Settings > Notifications

  6. Change (or add option to select) value that is used for the customer’s account root

    Currently, when a subscription is created and the customer adds new domains, the following physical structure is created on a server:

    C:\vhosts\primary.domain\new.domain

    where primary.domain is the primary domain of the subscription and new.domain is another domain, created by the customer.

    Sometimes, in this scenario, a number of new domains created by the customer might be quite big, so physical structure becomes something like this:

    C:\vhosts\primary.domain\new.domain

    C:\vhosts\primary.domain\new1.domain

    ...

    C:\vhosts\primary.domain\new199.domain

    C:\vhosts\primary.domain\new200.domain

    In these circumstances, when the primary domain's name is changed, for example:

    primary.domain changed to newprimary.domain so physical structure is changed to C:\vhosts\newprimary.domain*

    There is a lot of data that has…

  7. Obsidian Scheduled Tasks update has less functionlity due to cron style Version 18.0.25 Update #2

    Version 18.0.25 Update #2 Windows

    New Cron style schedule tasks. This was such a poorly thought out feature to implement and as such a bad one.

    It's great that Plesk want's to standardise the control panel between platforms but now in the case of Windows servers the experience is worse than before. Previously there were checkboxes that you could tick, so if you wanted a task to execute every 5 minutes then you could just ticket the appropriate boxes.

    Now in attempt to bring cron style to Windows without the / character this has become really laborious having to enter…

  8. Migrate/move scheduled task with Plesk windows to a different subscription

    I would like to suggest the feature move scheduled task created under a subscription level to another subscription.

    With Linux, it's possible to modify /var/spool/cron/crontabs but windows such changes it not possible.

    Thank you.

  9. Stop sending the user back to the root path in file manager after clicking on refresh

    In the file manager, when I press the refresh button of my browser, plesk changes the path to the root path of domain rather than refreshing the actual folder path.

    For example:
    I have a domain called tomydna
    It is a wordpress installation
    So, sometimes, I want to go to wp-content/cache/ to see if cache files and folders are created. Sometimes, I must click on refresh button to see if the server just created new files or new folders.
    Unfortunately, when I press the refresh button of my browser there is an unexpected behavior, Plesk sends me back to the…

  10. Insert a link to access Plesk in notifications (E.G Domain creation, Subscription expired, etc...)

    It would be awesome to add a link to access Plesk directly in all notifications sent by Plesk, especially in case of several Plesk servers to administrate. See the example attached.

  13. Comment field at the bottom of each control panel page

    If making setting changes, it would be great to have comment section as a notepad. This would help to accidentally revoke such settings later because the reason of a config is forgotten.

  15. Group similar notifications regarding "Subscription expiration" into one email.

    1. "Subscription expiration" notification/event is configured in Tools & Settings > Notifications

    2. These emails are generated during the Plesk daily task (/etc/cron.daily/50plesk-daily), which is running every night by default

    3. Notifications are being sent separately related to each subscription.

    It is not very convenient to receive such kind of notifications separately.

    Please add an ability to group similar notifications into one email.

  16. Be able to export PHP and Extensions settings globally

    As per Audit purposes, there is a need to perform the PHP and Extensions settings globally.

    For now, it can be done manually and with a lot of work through CLI but it would be great to have this feature implemented so it can be done easily and from within the Plesk user interface.

  19. [XML API] Use the "switch-subscription" request to associate a subscription with a service plan by its name and not only plesk_guid

    Currently, using XML API, it's possible to "switch-subscription" request to associate a subscription with a service plan by the plan GUID.

    Considering a scenario where multiple Plesk servers are used with same Service Plan names, their GUID would still differ so the same request to one server would not work on another. Therefore, it would be nice to have a "plan_name" node under "switch-subscription" so that the same request could be used on all servers
