  1. Allow CNAME to point to another CNAME

    Allow CNAME records to point to another CNAME record. Currently it is not possible to do so in Plesk and shows the error:

    Error: Incorrect combination of DNS records is present in the DNS zone.

    A CNAME can point to another CNAME, although this configuration is generally not recommended for performance reasons. When applicable, the CNAME should point as closely as possible to the target name in order to avoid unnecessary performance overheads.

    But we will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.
    Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

  2. Lock DNS records | Disable Reset to default

    We have the "dmarc"- record in our template having a placeholder for the value. At the time the Record "dmarc" was edited by adding the value, mostly every DNS record is no more in the state of the DNS template.

    Therefore it is important to have some policies:
    - The button "Reset to default" can be disabled on Admin and Reseller level.
    - The button "Master/*****" can be disabled. Usually this functionality is not needed.
    - For certain very important DNS setting, a "Lock" button might make sense. If applied, this record can not be edited anymore by…

  4. Ability for additional settings for Plesk DNS

    Plesk overrides additional settings in /etc/named.conf on server-wide level and on zone level.
    So, it would be great to have the ability to configure additional settings via GUI to be applied correctly,

    The general use case that there is no need to constantly sync zones between master and slaves. The constant sync requests increase the load on the server like DDOS.

    We tried to workaround the issue using notify directive, however, it is being overwritten if modify some dns setting from Plesk.

  6. Ability to create custom MX records via DNS Templates with <domain> placeholder in the middle

    Ability to create custom MX records via DNS Templates with <domain> placeholder in the middle of the value.

    For example, currently, it is not possible to create a record via DNS Templates:
    <domain>. MX mx.<domain>.example.com

    It can be useful for setting up an external mail service with a hostname based on a domain name.

  7. Make it possible to setup a Microsoft DNS Server as Master, and another Microsoft DNS Server one as *****, that replicate/synchronise.

    I have the need to have an backup DNS Server, and especially using Microsoft DNS on both servers.
    This because we have scripts that have to be ran on Microsoft DNS Servers, to generate Let's Encrypt certificates for non-web purposes.

    And syncing the DNS on both MS DNS servers will give us near no downtime in DNS when its replicated.

  11. Integrate ***** DNS extension with cPanel dnsonly

    cPanel uses Bind by default, same as Plesk, and ***** DNS manager extension already allows working with remote Bind installations.

    It would be great if the extension gets improved to be able to synchronize changes to a cPanel dnsonly servers.

    This is the main feature that could help cPanel clients like ourselves, test and enjoy the features Plesk Onyx provides, without having to consider creating a new set of DNS servers.

  13. DNS: Add PTR record without domain subscription

    Sometimes PTR records have different names from domains subscription, for example to IP address rented to customers.

    As ISP provider you manage PTR records and you need identify reverses records with services or customers.

  15. Add DNS TTL per entry

    Add a DNS TTL per entry option instead of just SOA TTL.

    This will make it more inline with products like cPanel etc and is very useful when using dynamic dns to have low TTL but other entries like mx can have a high TTL

  16. Enable multiple strings in a single TXT (SPF) record

    At the moment when adding TXT (SPF) DNS record in Plesk it is impossible to enter it as concatenated quoted strings

    "v=spf1 include:AAA.com" "include:BBB.jp" "include:CCC.jp ~all"

    (all quotes will be automatically escaped)

    "&quot;v=spf1 include:AAA.com&quot; &quot;include:BBB.jp&quot; &quot;include:CCC.jp ~all&quot;"

    This RFC
    https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4408.txt
    3.1.3. Multiple Strings in a Single DNS record

    states that such concatenated quoted string format should be possible.

    Please, implement this feature

  18. Clarify that underscores are automatically added by Plesk when creating SRV records

    Just Place some text on the SRV "add record" page to clarify that users don't have to add underscores to the service- and protocol names.

    If they do, there will be two underscores and Office 365 won't validate.

  19. change domain alias

    when i have a domain alias (lets say alias.com) for domain test.com and i want to change the alias to test2.com, if have to delete the alias and recreate it.
    if i have many custom dns records in the alias, i have to create them again manually.
    it should be possible to just change the aliases "main-domain"
