  1. Move domains between subscriptions

    This is a feature that needs to be brought to the Plesk Control Panel.

    This request has been outstanding since Plesk 10:
    http://kb.parallels.com/en/113938

    This wasn't possible in Plesk 11.5.
    http://kb.parallels.com/en/121606

    It still does not appear possible in Plesk 12.

    At the very least, breaking a domain out into its own subscription would be a good first step.

    Search words:
    I cannot move domain to another subscription
    move webspaces
    move a domain within a multi-domain subscription
    multi-domain subscription
    migration manager
    transfer a domain
    separate subscription
    split subscription
    break out domain from subscription

          Everyone, thank you for the feedback, it’s been quite enlightening. We’d like to understand the root cause behind your requests to change the WP installation URL and we’d appreciate if you could answer our questions below:

          1. Do you need this to support some sort of staging scenario, where you’re synchronizing changes between “staging” and “production” instances?

          2. Do you develop WP websites in a temporary folder not easily accessible from outside and then, as soon as you consider the website to be done, you move it to the “final” (production) folder?

          3. Is there a scenario different from #1 and #2 above that requires moving WP to a different directory after the installation, and if so, could you describe the business scenario?

          Since Uservoice is not particularly well-suited to have these discussions, we suggest all interested parties to visit the following thread on our forum and participate in the…

        • Custom Bookmarks on homesite / start-screen

          It would be a good idea to put the bookmarks back in the panel. In some earlier versions of plesk ( 9 or ten i think) we could generate a bookmark for every website of the plesk-system (i.e. a special hosting or a database) wich enable a solution for 1click administration of our most used actions in plesk.

          thanks for bring it back again!

          • Overuse Policy: Overuse is not allowed + Grace Period

            Right now there are 3 options:

            - Overuse is not allowed (this is preferred but will disable customers site once limit is hit)
            - Overuse of disk space and traffic is allowed
            - Overuse is allowed (not recommended)

            Scenario:

            A resellers Overuse Policy is set to:
            Overuse is not allowed

            That reseller has his warning set to 90% of his 10GB package.
            But on 1 day, one of his customers uploads 2GB.

            Effect: His total package has 12GB and the nightly run will disable his package, without warning.

            Result: The reseller is angry because all of his customers are offline, …

            • Plesk File Browser - Change Permissions recursive

              Yes of Course: Changing file- and Folder-persmissions is possible via SSH.

              But I couldn't tell my Clients to connect via SSH and give in commands they don't know. They will mail me and tell me how bad the Service is with such use-cases.

              Also changing via FTP Client is possible, but for example FileZilla will Need a Long time for changing an complex WordPress install with some thousand files. Or even worse Typo3 with couple of ten-thousands of files.

              I think extending the Plesk File Browser with an "recursive" Checkbox is really no big deal, but really good für UX…

                • FTP setting should be managed from Plesk Gui.

                  There should be a checkbox to set active/passive/both mode of connection and ability to set passive ports range directly in Plesk.

                  • Change the delete a website button text

                    Just lost plenty of billing business emails because of a misleading text in Plesk for Windows. "Delete the Website" should be renamed "Delete Website and Email Accounts", or "Delete Domain Data". It is far from obvious than using this button will also erase email accounts. Talking about a website, email accounts are generally not counted as "associated data".

                    • Knowing the emails that exceed the "outgoing email spam" plesk 12.x

                      Hi,

                      with plesk 12, at last, has been implemented function "limit outgoing email," however, it would be possible to save one or more copies of emails that exceed the limits set in a specific administrative function of plesk?

                      In doing so, it is very easy for a amministartore, to know if the emails that exceed the limits are spam emails or newsletters, or otherwise. This option would enhance the work of our administrators, thus avoiding going to analyze the SMTP queue.

                      This message stored, will be deleted automatically from plesk for X days.

                      If what I wrote is not clear,…

                      • Rename ssl option and optimize ssl page (design)

                        1. Rename the ssl option in the domain options to "ssl certificates". In german it names "Websites sichern" (secure websites), better would be "SSL-Zertifikate" (ssl certificates).

                        2. Move the 3 options for ssl certificates (selfsigned, text or fileupload) into 3 tabs for better understanding.

                        • Autosave a shadow copy (local storage perhaps) of an ongoing edited file to prevent data loss in case of session timeout

                          My suggestion lies on the fact that I indeed lost my work on a php file that was open in the code editor, when I absent-mindedly pushed the "Apply" button on the text editor and realized with horror that my admin session timed out and I was returned to the unmodified version of the file once logged back in.

                          It would be convenient to autosave in the background ongoing changes of a text file that is bound to change once opened in the editor, in order to prevent data loss.

                          • LVE Manager native interface

                            My situation:
                            CoudLinux with LVE manager is installed and PHP version is being chosen in PHP selector.

                            Now it is hard to explain to my customers what exactly button should be clicked when there are two icons with the same functionality available:
                            - PHP Settings (native Plesk's button)
                            - PHP Selector (Button which becomes available once lvemanager is installed in CloudLinux).

                            And I suggest you to disable the native button "PHP Settings" once lvemanager is installed. In order not to confuse customers.

                            Or at least you can add a checkbox "Turn off native php settings button". For example under Tools&Settings…

                                • Set higher timeout for the Web Admin in Plesk Panel for Windows

                                  The webadmin is an aspx application and it's default timeout is often 2-3 minutes, because session state for that app is InProc (default) and so this is subject to the app recycling pool of IIS (often less than 5 minutes). The problem is especially relevant on servers with a low load (when no users are clicking anything for some time, processes are killed and so the session state, causing a frequent session expiration).

                                  It should be enough to set Web.config file for the webadmin aspx application to store session state in a SQL server custom db

                                  • What about a start or tutorial page for new users built into the Plesk web app?

                                    My dedicated Windows Server 2012 server came with Plesk 12 installed.

                                    I'm new to Plesk. All of those settings are quite overwhelming. I don't even know where to start. Do I create users first? Do I create Service Plans first? How does a first time user even know where to start?

                                    • Cache Functionality Tools

                                      Cache is of huge imporatnce in hosting performance of web sites.

                                      There are presently zero tools to help this in a simple way.

                                      This would aid server management enormously.

                                      • Plesk-wide maintenance mode

                                        At times it takes quite significant time to perform plesk in-place upgrade. During this time all sites are down and plesk control panel is down as well.

                                        It would be good to have plesk-wide maintenance mode for such occasions that would display a nice maintenance or upgrade notice page that would be displayed to whoever accesses the sites hosted in plesk or plesk control panel itself.

                                        • Enable IPv6 by default for a domain when an IPv6 address exists

                                          When adding a new subscription, the value for IPv6 address is set to "none" even if the server has assigned an IPv6 address (and other domains already use it).

                                          It's time for Plesk to enable IPv6 by default for new domains, the same way it does for IPv4.
