  1. Add HTTP authentication to Panel itself

    I think you should add HTTP authentication to the Plesk panel itself - that way it is more secure and if there is ever a vulnerability that allows bypassing the Plesk panel login, someone would also have to find a vulnerability in HTTP authentication itself before even getting to the Plesk panel in the first place. To me it makes more sense to make the Plesk panel itself the most secure it can possibly be, not just websites/virtual hosts hosted by the Plesk panel.

  2. Put all nginx directives into one server block

    Hello,
    As it is possible to put more than one listen directives, putting only one server block would optimize a lot the Nginx config file.
    Also putting the index directive into the server part would avoid to put it in every / locations.

  3. editable global mime types for apache (default for all virtual hosts)

    By default, apache will return wrong mime types for some file extensions (for examples font files).

    We can add additional mime types per website, however we can't edit them globally for all websites via plesk.

    We can achieve this by editing /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/mime-types.conf manually from cli, however plesk could provide a more comfortable way to do it.

    Please add option to edit global mime types that will be used by all virtual hosts by default and overridden if website has its own instructions.

  4. Create a wget function on file manager

    Its very common that we need to download a large gb archive into our httpdocs follder.
    With the proper download/wget function on filemanager instead of ssh and then wget, changing ownership , will help us save a lot of time.

  5. Combine multiple 301 redirects

    I recently updated to Onyx 17.5.3.

    In the hosting settings for each domain i can enable a 301 redirect to HTTPS and i can set a 301 redirect for the preferred domain.

    Great features, but the SEO boys are complaining... Apperently Google does not like multiple redirects.

    Please combine multiple 301 redirects.

  8. Apache Settings as Service Plan - Addons

    It would be really great if we could add Apache Settings to our Service Plan Addons ...
    So for example we could simply make an Addon "modgzip", "modgeoip", "mod_whatever" - add it to the Customers requesting it and we are all set ...

  9. Erlang/Elixir support via CGI

    Currently I can't find a way to serve Erlang/Elixir applications using a limited Plesk account. Nginx and apache fully support this via CGI.

  10. Compile nginx with ngx_http_fastcgi_module

    Compile nginx with the ngxhttpfastcgi_module so that it's possible to use the nginx fast cgi cache. It can make a basic WordPress site extremely fast as PHP doesn't need to be executed at all but the static page can be served straight away by nginx.

    There are even several WordPress plugins that can empty the cache automatically when new content is published or old content updated.

    I think this would be quite a simple change from Plesk's side as the only required think I can think of would be just to add the module at compilation time to…

  11. Support from ALPN (Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation)

    Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation (ALPN) Support where good.

    To ensure the best possible compatibility of support would be very good here.
    Of course, this is not a priority but would be good.
    So could the future https, http, be http / 2 Easy granted.

  12. Separate PHP-FPM process per subscription for security and performance reasons

    Sharing a PHP-FPM process with separate pools per websites is a security issue and a problem for performance when some clients may deploy bad scripts to the server.

    A huge reason for why sharing the same PHP-FPM process between subscriptions is that the OPCACHE (Xcache, APC and Opcache) share the same memory and it is accessible between clients. Disabling access to stats and controlling api of them is available, but it's not a great solution for some critical cases. Still, this is not suitable when isolation between apps is critical.

    Another reason is with php scripts that clients deploy. In…

  13. Plesk functionality to add or select (compile) custom Nginx modules portfolio!

    How about adding the ability to compile necessary modules for nginx right from the Plesk Web-GUI? It is complex due to systems differences, but Plesk environment is more or less well-known, and Plesk has its own repo, so, you could offer pre-compiled versions of Nginx, like + http2 or - pagespeed, etc.

  14. External NGINX as AutoCDN

    Hi Plesk Team,

    Why dont allow to customer to replicate their statics files, like jpg gif css js etc... from plesk to a external nginx configured as CDN?

    This will improve web page, prevent overload the plesk servers from loading static files.

    With a module that autosync files from customer to a pool of external nginx managed by plesk
