  1. 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.

  2. 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"

  4. Add method to REST API to manage domain default DNS zone settings (for DNS TTL management)

    Currently when using the REST API to get the DNS records of a domain, no TTL values are returned for records unless their TTL values have been changed by the user manually. That's because (by default) DNS records inherit their TTL values from the default DNS zone settings of a domain. However these default DNS zone settings cannot be viewed or managed by the Rest API. Meaning that the default TTL values for DNS records can be viewed using the REST API.

    Resulting in a deficiency for users who want to use the REST API to properly manage DNS records.

  5. Hidden Primary DNS without NS RR

    in Plesk it is impossible to configure the SOA Primary Nameserver without a NS RR.

    The SOA template should support Hidden Primary NameServer and the Zone file generation should always use the Hidden Primary NameServer in the Domain SOA entry.

    Example:
    @ IN SOA ns1.hidden-primary.tld ...
    ...
    domain.tld. IN NS ns1.secondary.tld.
    domain.tld. IN NS ns2.secondary.tld.

    Thank you for your suggestion. To be able to evaluate your suggestion we'd like to know more about the possible use case(s). Can you provide us with some scenarios in which you need to configure the SOA without a Nameserver RR? What limitation are you currently experiencing due the fact that a NS RR is required?

  6. DNS access for domain from SSL Certificate Registration

    When registering a new SSL certificate using Let's Encrypt, is there no way you can give access to add the challenge TXT record on the DNS directly from the SSL form providing the Chalenge key. Having to have more than one form open one on domains and the other on the website config is crazy. it will just make life so much easier.

  7. Add support for djbdns / tinydns

    Add support for djbdns / tinydns - export each domain's DNS records into a plain text file that gets then copied to separate (stand-alone) DNS server(s) running djbdns / tinydns. The DNS services do not and should not run on Plesk servers themselves, but rather on separate stand-alone servers. Export each domain's DNS zone into domain.com.txt filename.

    The text file synchronization can be done either automatically by Plesk, or a simple cron job to automate replication to 2+ djbdns servers, where the files are added, or if a domain.com.txt exists, overwrite it and comile/publish djbdns data.

    (we've been using djbdns…

  12. Please add the ability to Plesk installer check if bind9 configuration was customized

    Please add the ability to Plesk installer check if bind9 configuration was customized

    At the moment we have a feature that Plesk pre-upgrade checker shows warnings if custom templates are configured in /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/templates/custom/

    Add the same ability but to check if bind9 configuration files are customized at least /etc/default/bind9 file

    For example, if the mentioned file was customized after upgrade configuration of the bind9 can be corrupted and service could not be started which lead to the downtime of the websites

  13. Set MX priority 100 or customize to any value

    Possbility to add MX record with priority 100 but plesk allows only to select priorities from 0 to 50. For example to enable mail server to work properly at the OVH they require the configuration to priority 100

    The actual value of an MX priority does not influence the behavior of other servers directly. It is more a "sorting" criteria. When OVH asks for "100" in a list of their five MX servers as 1, 5, 50, 100, 200, you can also rearrange that list to values like 1, 5, 10, 15, 20 with 15 representing the 100, because it is in the same order "slot" as their manual suggests. Currently you can configure ten MX entries for the same domain, but in real-world configurations we've never encountered a domain where ten MX entries were needed. 

    If you know of an example where a provider asks for a fixed value like "100" and does not deliver mail if that value is not present in an MX record, please let us know in your comments.

  14. Share One ***** DNS Server for Multiple Plesk Servers

    Current we are not able to do this as all Plesk Severs look for "rndc-key" key value in the ***** DNS Server.

    It would be great if we can change this "rndc-key" key value so we can configure the key on the ***** Server as rndc-key-1, rndc-key-2, ...

  15. When subscription on source server is deleted after migration do not remove DNS zone on slave DNS

    After a migration the DNS zone for a subscription should not be removed from slave servers configured with Slave DNS Manager extension, if Plesk server is not the master for the zone.

  16. 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!
