  1. 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:

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. DNS recursion for specific IP list

    It would be helpful to add support for recursion for just some IPs so the server can be used as part of an intranet (for example) and still resolve external domains (google, etc)

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  8. 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"

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  15. System IP Address

    In the IP address manager, I am able to distribute an IP address as Shared or Dedicated. In my case, I don't want that my main IP and the both IPs for my nameservers are used by customer subscriptions. So what I want to suggest is that I can distribute an IP address as "System IP", so it can't be used by subscriptions.

  19. 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

  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.
