  5. Add the ability to apply DNS Template to existing domains on Windows

    This feature exists on Linux. So it will be great to have the same on Windows as well. It will make it easier to manage DNS on servers with many domains.

  6. Introduce DNS records multi-column sort.

    When required to add a few NS records, it's easy to make typos as DNS records can be sorted by a record type but not sorted by value.

    The following sorting is proposed:
    1. User Sorts by Value, then the order is: Value (ASC or DESC), Type (ASC), Host (ASC)
    2. User Sorts by Type, then the order is: Type (ASC or DESC), Host (ASC), Value (ASC)
    3. User Sorts by Host, then the order is: Host (ASC or DESC), Type (ASC), Value (ASC)

  7. Set up MX records for G Suite Gmail in one click

    Would be nice to get some extension for plesk users so they can switch mx from default to G Suite Gmail in "one click".

    Similar to Remote MX Wizard for cPanel

  8. Automatically enable a DNS zone for newly created subdomains on both the Plesk side and in the DigitalOcean DNS extension

    It would be great if after the new subdomain is created, its DNS zone automatically enables on both Plesk side and in the DigitalOcean DNS extension

  9. Be honest about whether DNS records in Plesk are actually applied

    The DNS records in Plesk pretend as though they're actually being applied to the domain, but this is FALSE. The nameservers of my domain are not set to my domain's name. You need to compare the actual nameserver records and to the ones in the Plesk settings before acting like you're the name server for my domain.

    Case in Point: https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/123260/the-plesks-name-server-acts-as-the-primary-name-server-for-the-dns-zone-what

    Plesk is nice, but this is not nice!

  13. REST api DNSSEC

    Would it be possible to sign a domains DNSSEC through the API and export the public key?

    This would be nice to have in combination with a domainregistar outside of Plesk.

  15. An extension to synchronize DNS zones from Plesk to Vultr DNS service.

    This is something that really should be available by now, especially as it's available for DO and AWS.

  16. Raw SOA Editor

    I want to change the DNS-Editor to the Raw View like a Source Editor for HTML.

    Its way better to import dns from other providers to plesk with the raw soa file format if there are too much records to single add them via gui.

    Maybe a Button "Extended View" with default SOA Design

    $TTL 7200
    @ IN SOA ns1.your-server.de. postmaster.your-server.de. (
    2019101403 ; serial
    86400 ; refresh
    10800 ; retry
    3600000 ; expire
    86400 ) ; minimum

    @ IN NS ns3.second-ns.de.
    @ IN NS ns.second-ns.com.
    @ IN NS ns1.your-server.de.

    @ IN A 1.1.1.1
    www IN A 1.1.1.1

  17. Keep DNS zone functionality

    Please add functionality to "Keep DNS zone".

    It would allow keeping the DNS zone of a domain when this domain is deleted.

    This is useful, for example, if you move an account to a different server that is a part of the same DNS cluster as the previous server, and you want to delete the account information from the original server.

    The same functionality is implemented in cPanel:

  18. Add the ability to automate DNSSEC zone signing for multiple domains

    Now it is possible to sign zones manually only.
    Moreover, it is required to copy DS records to the parent zone manually even if the parent domain is hosted in Plesk.

  19. Disable DNS when Subscription is Disabled

    When a Subscription is Disabled, DNS records are currently still served for the domain. When email and/or websites are hosted remotely, Disabling the Subscription in Plesk therefore has no real effect.

    Keeping the DNS records active when the Subscription is merely Suspended seems correct. But keeping them enabled when the Subscription is Disabled is not ideal with remotely-hosted email or web.

    Obviously simply disabling DNS for the domain resolves the problem, but I think it should be automatic when the domain is Disabled rather than just Suspended.

  20. Add custom dns recursion settings via Plesk GUI or CLI and avoid overwriting by Plesk

    Going to Tools & Settings > DNS Template > DNS Recursion Settings, it's not possible to set a custom list of IPs or hostnames, it's only possible to choose between different options: any host, localnets, localhost.

    As a workaround to this limitation, i'ts required to customize the options section in the /etc/named.conf file, but it gets overwritten by Plesk.

    Please, add the possibility to customize the dns recursion settings via Plesk GUI and to keep the custom allow-recursive set in /etc/named.conf file.
