  1. Add the functionality to modify the notify-to-soa option from within Plesk and make it persistent

    Add the functionality to modify the notify-to-soa option from within Plesk and make it persistent.

    Right now it can be done as per the workaround shown here: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001713434

    However, this solution is not persistent as the file /etc/named.conf gets overwriten everytime a change is made in Plesk.

  3. Add custom dns recursion settings via Plesk GUI or CLI and avoid overwriting by Plesk

    Going to Tools & Settings > DNS Template > DNS Recursion Settings, it's not possible to set a custom list of IPs or hostnames, it's only possible to choose between different options: any host, localnets, localhost.

    As a workaround to this limitation, i'ts required to customize the options section in the /etc/named.conf file, but it gets overwritten by Plesk.

    Please, add the possibility to customize the dns recursion settings via Plesk GUI and to keep the custom allow-recursive set in /etc/named.conf file.

  4. Disable DNS when Subscription is Disabled

    When a Subscription is Disabled, DNS records are currently still served for the domain. When email and/or websites are hosted remotely, Disabling the Subscription in Plesk therefore has no real effect.

    Keeping the DNS records active when the Subscription is merely Suspended seems correct. But keeping them enabled when the Subscription is Disabled is not ideal with remotely-hosted email or web.

    Obviously simply disabling DNS for the domain resolves the problem, but I think it should be automatic when the domain is Disabled rather than just Suspended.

  5. REST api DNSSEC

    Would it be possible to sign a domains DNSSEC through the API and export the public key?

    This would be nice to have in combination with a domainregistar outside of Plesk.

  6. Keep DNS zone functionality

    Please add functionality to "Keep DNS zone".

    It would allow keeping the DNS zone of a domain when this domain is deleted.

    This is useful, for example, if you move an account to a different server that is a part of the same DNS cluster as the previous server, and you want to delete the account information from the original server.

    The same functionality is implemented in cPanel:

  7. Allow users to create subdomains for whitelisted superzones

    Currently you can only disable creating of subdomains for all superzones.

    An exclude list to allow some superzones would be nice.

  8. Add <ip1>, <ip2>, <ip3> placeholders to DNS template

    Mail server on windows sends email from specific IP
    It's required to setup SPF record in DNS template to include all server public IP addresses.
    If mail server outgoing IP and public IP is changed in the future, the DNS will update the new IP automatically for all domains.

    Example: "v=spf1 ip4:<ip> ip4:<ip2> ip4:<ip3> ~all"

  10. dnssec, insert DS records in DNS zone via button, or automatically

    When signing a domain with the Plesk DNSSEC plug-in DS records are created and one can copy that to clipboard.

    It would be comfortable if there is a button/option to insert these records automatically in the domain zone.

  11. Allow CNAME to point to another CNAME

    Allow CNAME records to point to another CNAME record. Currently it is not possible to do so in Plesk and shows the error:

    Error: Incorrect combination of DNS records is present in the DNS zone.

    A CNAME can point to another CNAME, although this configuration is generally not recommended for performance reasons. When applicable, the CNAME should point as closely as possible to the target name in order to avoid unnecessary performance overheads.

    But 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.

  12. Automatically activate created domains/subdomains for Microsoft Azure DNS

  13. Lock DNS records | Disable Reset to default

    We have the "_dmarc"- record in our template having a placeholder for the value. At the time the Record "_dmarc" was edited by adding the value, mostly every DNS record is no more in the state of the DNS template.

    Therefore it is important to have some policies:
    - The button "Reset to default" can be disabled on Admin and Reseller level.
    - The button "Master/*****" can be disabled. Usually this functionality is not needed.
    - For certain very important DNS setting, a "Lock" button might make sense. If applied, this record can not be edited anymore by resellers or…

  14. An extension to synchronize DNS zones from Plesk to Vultr DNS service.

    This is something that really should be available by now, especially as it's available for DO and AWS.

  15. Add the ability to automate DNSSEC zone signing for multiple domains

    Now it is possible to sign zones manually only.
    Moreover, it is required to copy DS records to the parent zone manually even if the parent domain is hosted in Plesk.

  16. Ability for additional settings for Plesk DNS

    Plesk overrides additional settings in /etc/named.conf on server-wide level and on zone level.
    So, it would be great to have the ability to configure additional settings via GUI to be applied correctly,

    The general use case that there is no need to constantly sync zones between master and slaves. The constant sync requests increase the load on the server like DDOS.

    We tried to workaround the issue using notify directive, however, it is being overwritten if modify some dns setting from Plesk.

  17. Use FQDN in Zone Transfer!

    MY Zonetransfer failed since months without noticing it.

    As my *****-dns provider changed the IP address for the AXFR-Servers.

    If Plesk would accept a FQDN, this wouldn't have happened.

  18. Disallow multiple SPF records

    At the moment it is possible for customers to add more than one SPF record making the configuration invalid.

    Plesk should disallow multiple SPF records.

    Plesk should give an error and an automatic merge suggestion.

    EXAMPLE:
    "Error you can only have one SPF record."
    This is your current SPF record: <current SPF>
    You tried to add: <extra SPF>
    automatic merge suggestion: <combined suggestion>

  19. Ability to create custom MX records via DNS Templates with <domain> placeholder in the middle

    Ability to create custom MX records via DNS Templates with <domain> placeholder in the middle of the value.

    For example, currently, it is not possible to create a record via DNS Templates:
    <domain>. MX mx.<domain>.example.com

    It can be useful for setting up an external mail service with a hostname based on a domain name.
