  2. Letsencrypt wildcard certificate, check dns and continue automatically

    When creating a wildcard certificate for a domain where we are hosting the DNS, letsencrypt creates the required DNS record automatically, but then shows a dialog telling us to check the dns before continuing.

    Since plesk created the DNS record and the DNS points to our server, the plugin should be able to verify that the DNS is good and continue automatically.

    If we are not hosting the DNS and we have to manually create the record before continuing, the tools can easily display a 'check dns' button that will do the dns lookup and confirm if good or not.

  3. Plesk Backup & Restore IV - protocol functionality

    Plesk Backup & Restore IV

    I personally think it's better to save all backup logs in a MariaDB / mySQL database table so that I can search for problems there later. So searchable logs with timestamps and users per domain / all domains, sometimes also by topic such as "email" / "database" / "files" / "configuration"

  4. Plesk Backup & Restore Part II

    Plesk Backup & Restore

    In my opinion, it makes no sense to import a backup where the software only "Only the configuration of the selected objects" means that if you click the wrong button, the database data can no longer be imported.

    The databases have to be deleted manually in order to then select the correct setting "Configuration and contents of the selected objects". There is no setting to "Overwrite configuration and contents".

  5. Customize Plesk notifications for each customer

    Currently, Plesk notifications (like "Subscription expiration", "Resource usage limits exceeded by subscription", etc.) are the same for all Plesk users.

    It would be great to have a possibility to customize notifications individually for each subscription or customer to personalize information about payments and offers.

  6. Let wp-cron run every minute by default

    Currently, when enabling 'Take over wp-cron.php' and 'Create a replacement task (...)', the cron job that's created only runs twice an hour. (See screenshot attached)

    This seems wrong; any Wordpress cronjob that needs to run at a higher interval, will fire too late.
    There is no performance benefit to running wp-cron less often, in fact, it might cause performance problems, because late jobs would pile up.

    Can the default wp-cron.php interval be changed to every minute, please?


    One source that offers some more explanation: https://wpengine.com/support/wp-cron-wordpress-scheduling/

    Missed crons and crons that run too frequently can both be resolved by enabling the…

  8. Add a column to Domain List to show if SSL is installed

    On the domain list, it would be helpful and save a LOT of time by having an additional column to show if a domain has SSL installed on it. See Image

  10. Add ability to change maillog location

    Currently maillog location is hardcoded as /var/log/maillog used by many services as fail2ban, statistics, etc. and cannot be changed
    At the same time on high-loaded mailserver this log can consume a significant amount of space

    Thank you for your idea! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.

    Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

    The Sitejet team is working on a "Share & Copy" website feature which allows users to share a website and copy it to another Sitejet account. It is also already possible to see a preview of the website in Sitejet Builder (screenshot -> Open preview website).

  12. Set HELO/EHLO name in MailEnable on Windows at Plesk installation

    A default Plesk install on Windows incorrectly sets the MailEnable hostname to servername.home which is invalid and will cause blacklisting of the Plesk server.

    It must be assigned manually:
    https://talk.plesk.com/threads/how-to-align-the-mail-servers-helo-ehlo-with-proper-dns-forward-and-reverse-values.368890/#post-924515
    ...which also may require creating a subscription on the server because the MailEnable settings requires the "sending notifications" email to be locally hosted.

    A proper hostname should be set at installation, or at minimum a notice shown to the Plesk admin that a manual setting change is necessary.

  13. Add a feature wizard / feature showcase for feature on updates

    TL;DR: This is a feature request for adding a feature wizard/showcase (for lack of a better name) to Plesk. Something that simply let's administrators choose whether they want to enable the new features that have become available when a Plesk update has been installed.

    Detailed use case:
    Currently, often new features are enabled by default when a Plesk update gets installed on existing Plesk installations. This is not always desirable and can cause confusion with Plesk server administrators. For example administrators might not want to enable new features directly as they become available because they want to familiarize themself with the feature first. Which…

  14. 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?

  16. SSL settings per plan restriction

    Hi it would be nice to have in plan permission settings, to disable access to SSL (both those from extensions as well as LetsEncrypt) Settings for Hosting Plan, not user as it was sugested. Exactly the same way it has been done with SiteJet Builder.

    I have some customers who are non-technical, so less options in the Panel then better for them.

  17. 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.

  19. Hide Caching (nginx) option in WP-Toolkit

    The controls in the Tools section of WP-Toolkit should be customizable to allow hiding Caching (nginx) so that customers do not enable it randomly. The ability to enable nginx caching should still be available from Apache & nginx settings.

    Thank you for your idea! We understand that this idea originates from the fact that customers sometimes enable nginx-caching without realizing what this option does to their website. Potentially creating issues with their own website. 


    We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it becomes popular.

  20. Add support for OpenID/SAML SSO platforms

    Please provide a way to integrate custom SSO platforms with Plesk via OpenID/SAML protocols - the OneAll Social Login extension used to have this functionality, but it's currently deprecated and its replacement (Social Login extension) does not provide these options.
