  2. Do not automatically delete non-Plesk Route 53 records

    When making any update to a DNS zone, all records that were not created/synched with Plesk are automatically deleted. This prevents users from using advanced Route 53 functionality, such as aliases (for CDN, load balancer, etc). Because Plesk does not support AWS aliases (which is fair enough), this specific functionality MUST be configured directly in Route 53. That would only be a minor inconvenience, if Plesk didn't actively delete any record not synched with Plesk on any unrelated DNS update. This means Plesk-managed domains can't really use any advanced AWS functionality or Plesk will take the site offline.

  3. DNS Forwarding

    It'd be great to have an option to configure DNS Forwarding with masking in Plesk.

  4. 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

  5. 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…

  6. 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

  7. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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, ...

  19. Introduce DNS records multi-column sort.

    When required to add a few NS records, it's easy to make typos as DNS records can be sorted by a record type but not sorted by value.

    The following sorting is proposed:
    1. User Sorts by Value, then the order is: Value (ASC or DESC), Type (ASC), Host (ASC)
    2. User Sorts by Type, then the order is: Type (ASC or DESC), Host (ASC), Value (ASC)
    3. User Sorts by Host, then the order is: Host (ASC or DESC), Type (ASC), Value (ASC)
