  1. Security: Mail TLS-enforcement for specific target domains

    Recently, larger companies have been requiring their customers to enforce TLS for e-mail traffic.

    The mail system must therefore enforce TLS on certain target domains. The customer must be able to define this himself and it is important that this is not defined globally and is only activated for the sender domain of this customer and not for all domains on the host.

    Google already offers this in Gmail/Gsuite:

  2. Enable OCSP stapling ans HSTS for Plesk panel

    OSCP stapling and HSTS can now be enabled for domains using SSL It! estension.
    However these settings cannot be enabled while securing Plesk panel.
    So it will be really appreciated if such functionality is included in future Plesk updates.

  3. Add exceptions to automatic 301 redirects to https

    Automatic renewal of Let's encrypt certificates does not work when automatic redirects to https are enabled.

    It seems that Let's encrypt needs do excess the .well-known directory over http and fails if it receives a 301 redirect. It would be helpfull if the redirect could be specifically disabled for certain directories.

  5. Provide ModSecurity 3 modules for supported operating systems

    ModSecurity 3.0 was released about a year and a half ago, and the 2.x branch support seems to decline.

    In addition to that there are some features of ModSecurity 3.x, that would be nice to have:
    * Proper support for webservers other than Apache, without having to resort to an Apache-like wrapper module running within other web servers
    * Better performance due to the architecture rewrite
    * GeoIP2 databases support out-of-box (MaxMind no longer provides new Legacy-GeoIP databases, so this would be very good to have)

    Considering that newer *nix OS (Debian 10, CentOS 7 through EPEL) ship libmodsecurity-3, I…

  7. Add the option to forbid execution of files in Plesk for Windows

    In Plesk for Windows, add options to forbid executing .exe, .bat and other executable files in order to prevent starting of malicious scripts.
    It should be added to domain and server-wide levels.

  8. Export locked IP addresses from Fail2ban to a text file

    Export locked IP addresses from Fail2ban to a text file
    upload it automatically to an FTP. So you can still use the IP addresses with other services.

  10. Add option to Whitelist IP in Fail2Ban and mod_security

    I always need to whitelist IPs in Firewall, Fail2Ban and mod_security.

    u could add at least an option to also whitelist fail2ban in mod_security or even make two checkboxes in Firewall whitelisting to whitelist ip in all three modules.

    also usage of dns instead of ip would be greate for example PayPal does recomment to whitelist dns for api!

  11. Enable SSH Key Generate via Plesk Control Panel

    With the SSH Manager inside Plesk Onyx, it is extremely easy to add a new key to a subscription. The problem is, most users don't understand how to generate a key with tools like PuTTYgen and explaining it to them leaves them very confused. It would be very handy if, inside the SSH manager there was a way to request a new key pair be generated and added to a subscription automatically, so users don't have to go through the hassle of generating a key.

  12. Force root ssh login to "without-password", with GUI option to "enable root login with password for 10 minutes"

    Twofold:
    1) Create a scheduled process that reconfigures /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    -- if "PermitRootLogin" is enabled, change it to "without-password"

    2) Add an option in the GUI to allow ssh root login with password for 10 minutes, 30 minutes or 60 minutes

  13. Filter POST and PUT requests, but keep GET available

    It is needed to block PUT and POST requests from specific country, but keep GET available. For example, I do not want China to send POST and PUT to my server, but they are free to send GET in order to receive website's content.

  14. block bad bots by default

    There are many bots that can actually DoS a server using Plesk. Since there's no way to limit their connections they can overload a server really easily. Currently the only way to block them is by reading the logs and implementing blocks in nginx or .htaccess rules.

    It would be great if there could be some security by default. The community has created very comprehensive lists that could be used and auto updated / maintained by cron jobs.

    Here's an example for Apache

    https://github.com/mitchellkrogza/apache-ultimate-bad-bot-blocker/tree/master/Apache_2.4

    And here's for Nginx

    https://github.com/mitchellkrogza/nginx-ultimate-bad-bot-blocker

    It could help mitigate attacks and vulnerability scans as well a…

  15. check passwords against Pwned Passwords API

    Plesk should check user typed passwords against Pwned Passwords API

    https://haveibeenpwned.com/API/v2

    that way you could further improve systems running Plesk against Brute-Force attacks - and Dictionary attacks

    WordFence plugin for WordPress is already offering this, checking WordPress administrator passwords against https://haveibeenpwned.com/API/v2

    it shouldn't be too much work to compare Plesk password hash between Plesk and https://haveibeenpwned.com/API/

    I would like to use this feature for all services (FTP, E-Mail, Plesk, WordPress, etc.)

    It makes a lot of sense to do this, there are no drawbacks
    it should be option that users can enable/disable
    if you don't need it, you can disable…

  16. Let's encrypt wildcard for domain aliases

    Currently, when requesting a wildcard certificate for a domain with multiple domain aliases, only the main domain gets a wildcard.

    Let say you have a main domain domain.com and have 3 subdomains domain.fr, domain.co.jp and domain.eu.

    When requesting a wildcard certificate including all aliases, you'll get :

    domain.com
    *.domain.com
    domain.fr
    domain.co.jp
    domain.eu

    where it would be more logical and usefull to have :

    domain.com
    *.domain.com
    domain.fr
    *.domain.fr
    domain.co.jp
    *.domain.co.jp
    domain.eu
    *.domain.eu

  17. Backport Fail2Ban IPv6 Support to Plesk Onyx 17.x

    As of now, feature with 178 votes is available in Plesk Onyx 17.9 Preview only: https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/17924536-fail2ban-now-supports-ipv6-please-upgrade

    It would be awesome to have this feature available on earlier versions of Plesk Onyx without the necessity to wait until Plesk Onyx 17.9 becomes stable.

  19. Deny access to all dot files by default

    A lot of web applications that are either built or simply installed on a website use dot files and folders, whether those be .htaccess, .git, .env, etc.

    Generally speaking dot files and folders are used to store either sensitive files or backend configuration which you would never want users to be able to access.

    By default Apache has some protection built-in to restrict accessing dot files, but Nginx does not. This creates a potential security risk, for example I might install a web application or build one which has dot files in the public root, these most likely would be…

  20. deny access to .git folder by default

    I think it would be great if you could prevent access to .git folders that are usually left exposed by users in the server when building the vhost templates .

    It's very common that users forget to remove credentials and other sensitive information out of their repositories so by leaving the folder exposed it's possible for an attacker to gain access to this sensitive information.

    Currently we manually protect those folders when we spot them but it would be nice if this was implemented from the start.

    For example in nginx the following rule could be used.

    location ~ /\.git…
