  1. Ability to store domain mail content in the domain folder

    Please add the ability to store domain mail content in the domain folder like in cPanel /home/$user/mail/domain.tld/emailuser/

    In this case, it will be possible manually create a backup for website and mail content just by copying /home/$user/ folder and after restore this folder on the destination server.

    Copy-transfer-insert operations on emails are frequently done, but are a flawed and unsafe method to migrate emails as just one single update (e.g. an incoming mail or an edit on either source or target) while the copying process is not yet completed can break indexes and render the target copy useless. 

    Providing direct access to mail files from a web space account will also have end users experiment with the files directly, which again will cause a high number of support cases with providers who lease webspace to their users.

    Instead, please consider using the free "Site Import" extension which includes a "Mail Import" function, too. With that you can very easily and in a perfectly safe way migrate mailboxes between servers without the need to use a separate migration tool.

    The request did not become popular anyway, so we must decline it.

  5. Implement logic for DDOS protected domains

    As a hosting company we should have an option to give customers ddos protection.

    The only implementation that works great is taking a domain, secure it with ddos protection service and generate customers a subdomain under this domain.

    Lets say, example.com is protected under ddos protection software.
    A customer clicks on "add domain" and if we blocked the option to add any domains, there will be only generated a subdomain under example.com, EG: website1223153.example.com

    This subdomain would be protected by a ddos protection service.
    The customer can create a CNAME to website1223153.example.com in order to connect his domain to the…

    Effective DDoS protection can only be done by hardware solutions that are installed between Internet and server. Traffic directed to the server must be analyzed, and in case of DDoS it must be blocked before it reaches the server, because bandwith of NICs and CPU power will always be too small to cope with attacks. Once an attack reaches the server it is "too late". For that reason we suggest speaking with your data center instead if they can provide a suitable router before your server or maybe you can check a well-known cloud service through which traffic to the host and domains hosted on that host is routed.

  6. Allow logging in to webmail with alias credentials

    Please allow logging in to webmail with alias credentials.

    For example, if a main domain's mailbox mail@example.com has an alias mail@alias.com, they should both be able to log in to webmail.example.com with the same password.

    Allowing different user names for the same target mailbox broadens the attack surface. We do not see why it can make using a mailbox easier, as it is still the same mailbox and can equally well be opened with one set of defined login credentials. Also this request did not become popular. For these reasons we must decline it.

  7. Allow creation of database users on different database servers configured on Plesk

    In case when more than one database server are available on the Plesk server, e.g two or more MSSQL servers, it is possible to enable the "Database server selection" option on the subscriptions's service plan which allows creation of databases and database users on any database server available by default

    It would be great, however, if the ability to create databases and database users on all database servers available were enabled separately, like below:

    • Option on service plan to allow creation of databases on any database server available, in case this option disabled, the subscription would be able to create…

  10. A button to manually reissue SSLs for all domains

    Can we get a button to manually reissue SSLs for all domains and subdomains?

    I had a few issues in the past year because SSLs didn't automatically renew which made me lose hours with support tickets.

    I would prefer to hit the button "Reissue SSL for domains" once every 60 days over relying that everything will just work automatically.

    Reissuing SSL certificates for all domains on a server cannot solve any issue. Reissueing certificates automatically makes no difference to the automatic renewal attempt of SSLIt/Let's Encrypt. Instead, the correct solution to solve renewal issues of certificates is to check the "Keep websites secured" checkbox on the SSL page of the domain. Then, if aliases or subdomains that were formerly included in a certificate , that have been removed meanwhile are now missing can be excluded from the automatic renewal process. A second reason why such a reissue button for all domains is a bad idea is that LE rate limiting will be hit on servers with a certain number of domains. For many users it will then become impossible to issue new certificates for a certain ban time.

    So overall this feature request cannot be an appropriate approach to solve SSL renewal issues. We must decline it.

  12. Create the option "Maximum number of incremental backups to store" on Plesk

    Currently it is possible to limit the "Maximum number of full backups to store" which is valid for Full backups only, it would be good to have a similar option to limit the "Maximum number of incremental backups to store"

  16. Need more than 44KB/s throughput in File Manager

    With FTP not working, I am left to use the file manage in Plesk. However it is painfully slow, circa 1995 dialup speeds at 44KB/s. You really need to improve the throughput of the file manager at least 10x to make it reasonably usable. Please.

    There is no any special speed limit for the file manager from the side of Plesk.

    It looks like this is some kind of problem on your side.

    I suggest you contact Plesk technical support. Experienced supporters will check and fix the problem directly on your server.

    As major operating system changes that require a reboot (such as the mentioned Kernel upgrade) are not subject of updates that can be done from within Plesk, a reboot message is not needed. This request did not gain popularity either, so we must decline it.

  20. Add Hosting services payment options for 1 year 3 years and 5 years

    Myself and so many other business owners prefer to pay for hosting services in advance, usually selecting a 5-years package if available. This would make keeping track of payment so much easier and give options other than monthly.
