  1. Add Support for SimpleDNS 9

    Currently, only version 6.0 is supported. It would be great to add for SimpleDNS version 9.

  2. Automatic renewal of wildcard certificates when using Route 53

    When renewing a (Let's Encrypt) wildcard-certificate, we first need to go the page for SSL of the specific domain, copy the new code, go to the DNS-page, update the records, go back to the certificate page and click renew. This seems like a lot of manual steps for something that can easily be automated.

    I understand this has already been implemented for people who do not use the Route 53 plugin (or other DNS plugins), but since any change in Plesk DNS will automatically propagate to Route 53 with those plugins, I guess this can be fairly easily implemented, saving…

  3. Add "Are you sure?" question for disabling DNS zone management.

    It happend allready twice to me that i accedently disabled a dns zone because i misclicked the button. Every time it takes about 3+ hours until all dns servers are sync again if this error happens so it would be nice if plesk asks you: "Are you sure?" with a simple yes and cancle button.

  4. Handling DNSSEC through CLI

  5. if DNSSEC was signed before DNS is disabled, it should be re-signed with the same keys when DNS is re-enabled.

    it should be standard practice to check whether or not the DNSSEC is signed before disabling DNS so that DNSSEC can be re-signed after re-enabling DNS.
    A better option would be for Plesk Panel to automatically recognize if DNSSEC was signed before DNS is disabled and then re-signing with the same keys when DNS is re-enabled. If this isn't a possibility, the next best thing would be, if DNSSEC is signed, to provide a warning to the user in the form of a confirmation prompt saying something to the effect that "doing this will unsign DNSSEC and you will need…

  6. 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

  7. 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

  12. support DNAME records (Non-Terminal DNS Name Redirection) - see description

    For information: A DNAME-record is used to map / rename an entire sub-tree of the DNS name space to another domain. It differs from the CNAME-record which maps only a single node of the name space.

    I would personally appreciate if the full range of records that are available are supported, but with people (especially clients) having multiple things bundled onto single domains into subdomains and correspondent subdirectories, it makes sense more than ever to accommodate these records as many other providers do.

  14. Add IgnoreHosts options to Plesk`s DMARC implementation

    Currently it is possible to whitelist only domain with IgnoreMailFrom parameter. However there could be false-positive DMARC failures (in case sender's strict policy and mail going throughout relay) due to which it could be useful to have option to whitelist specific network. It would be nice having this option available

    Correct me if I am wrong, "IgnoreHosts" is required for you because you use external mail servers/services/relays for filtering out spam emails, right?


    Could you please write in comments what exact services/solutions do you use? Do these services support SRS (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sender_Rewriting_Scheme)? Have you configure it? If no, why?


    SRS is a method that allows to follow configured polices; "IgnoreHosts" disables any checking for hosts, which less secure than using SRS. Is there any reasons why do you have to configure "IgnoreHosts" instead of SRS?

  16. enlarge dns txt field

    At the DNS record edit screen the input field for a TXT record is very small.
    Only the first 20 characters are visible.

  17. 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, ...

  18. Please automate DNS for Certification Authority Authorization (CAA)

    After adding a certificate for a domain, plesk could add automatically the right DNS settings for CAA.

    Example: Adding a certificate from Let's Encrypt, Plesk could add an CAA Record with the right tags.

    Until now i added the records for Let's Encrypt in the DNS template, which is okay. The records needs to be changed manually, if a different certificate was installed.

  19. Add option to restrict customer access to add/edit DNS records per type

    Currently, there is no feature to restrict customer access to edit DNS zones by its type. There is only general DNS zones management permission in Plesk.
    There are cases when access to edit particular type of zone should be restricted. For example, if the customer edits the ptr record, it could broke the mail delivery on the server. To prevent such cases from happening, the option would be helpful.
