  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

      • 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…

                • 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".

                  • Show warning box if closing window or tab uploading.

                    Show a warning box, preventing a window or tab being closed, if that window is uploading something e.g file manager. Or is doing a critical task that requires the window or tab to be open.

                    • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • 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,…

                                  The ability to re-synchronize data upon migration is great.
                                  But when you are migrating a dozen or a hundred domain, it is painful to click re-synchronize on each domain one by one.

                                  Please, add a button allowing to re-synchronize all domains at once.

                                  Thanks

                                  • 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…

                                    • 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.

                                      • user-friendly interface

                                        Some processes last long and not always clear what is happening.
                                        1. Somewhere must be showing: that now makes the panel.
                                        2. View the progress of operations, for example: migration. Panel can showing progress. Let updated via ajax. The script is simple and takes less resources than reloading the page via button "Update".

                                        • Allow managements of NodeJS apps via CLI (on/off/restart/etc)

                                          Add a feature that would allow controlling customer's NodeJS apps (turning it on/off, restarting, etc) to avoid 'restarting' app by hand in GUI.
