  1. dnssec, insert DS records in DNS zone via button, or automatically

    When signing a domain with the Plesk DNSSEC plug-in DS records are created and one can copy that to clipboard.

    It would be comfortable if there is a button/option to insert these records automatically in the domain zone.

  2. Allow users to create subdomains for whitelisted superzones

    Currently you can only disable creating of subdomains for all superzones.

    An exclude list to allow some superzones would be nice.

  3. Use FQDN in Zone Transfer!

    MY Zonetransfer failed since months without noticing it.

    As my *****-dns provider changed the IP address for the AXFR-Servers.

    If Plesk would accept a FQDN, this wouldn't have happened.

  4. 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.

  6. Add <ip1>, <ip2>, <ip3> placeholders to DNS template

    Mail server on windows sends email from specific IP
    It's required to setup SPF record in DNS template to include all server public IP addresses.
    If mail server outgoing IP and public IP is changed in the future, the DNS will update the new IP automatically for all domains.

    Example: "v=spf1 ip4:<ip> ip4:<ip2> ip4:<ip3> ~all"

  7. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. RDNS Setup For Domains

    Please Do allow to create RDNS(reverse DNS) records to the users for their mailing severs.

    Many other Service providers have easy setup for that like: http://www.rackspace.com/knowledge_center/article/rackspace-cloud-essentials-creating-a-reverse-dns-record

    Additional information regarding this request:

    Please be sure you are an owner of IP-address if you plan to vote this suggestion.

    An owner of a block of IP-addresses has ability configure PTR records for IP-addresses in the block. If you rent a server or create a virtual machine in a cloud, you are not an owner of IP-address.

    Usually, companies like ISP or Cloud Providers own blocks of IP-addresses. In this case, you need to use Hosting/Cloud Provider Control Panel and set up reverse zone for an IP-address (not in Plesk Panel).

  19. powerdns support

    It'd be awesome if we can get support for powerdns support instead of bind9.
