  1. It should be possible to limit other users to a specific domain with full control panel functionality

    When a new user is added, it should be possible to limit him to a specific domain rather than having access to all other hosted domains. e.g i am hosting 4 domains on my subscription and i want to create a user with having access to only one domain with full control panel functionality, i should be able to having this control over other users.

  3. allow for custom firewall rules

    currently you can do it by IP/Port, but would like to be able to add firewall rules for things like string matching. A GUI would be ideal too.

  4. Add possibility to change default webmail.<domain> subdomain to custom

    At the moment by default any webmail interface is under domain webmail.<domain>

    Some people would like to use custom one. For me personally it's important to have this as server-wide setting (I have basic workaround for this - custom domainWebmail.php), but it isn't perfect (many links to webmail service missing, e.t.c.).

    And that's why we have plesk - user friendly interface.

  5. Sort email accounts by size of stored data

    Sort email accounts by size of stored data.
    Currently the email accounts can only be sorted alphabetically by mail address. It would be helpful to sort by size of space used.

  6. Can set "Preferred domain" setting in the "Service Plans"

    In the "Service Plans" part, there is no option for setting the "Preferred domain" (seoRedirectDirection).
    it is very inconvenience, because we need to set the "Preferred domain" (seoRedirectDirection) again and again after created the site.
    It is possible to add this setting in the "Service Plans" part?

  7. Create separate Mail and Web Space

    Make separate limits on Mail and Web disk spaces, so that hoster could sell one limit for web (i.e. 2Gb) and another limit for mail (i.e. 10x2Gb mailboxes)

  8. Add Exchange Server 2013 Integration

    I would love to use exchange server 2013 while using plesk panel. Exchange server is by far the most superior email server for windows and would be a great addition to plesk panel.

    I believe that there is also an open API or an easy way to send commands which would make it a lot easier to integrate with.

  9. Default SPAM / VIRUS protection for newly created mailboxes

    I suggest you add a feature in Settings with which we can enable SPAM / VIRUS protection for newly created mailboxes by default.

  11. Add two score thresholds to spamassassin

    If the spam score is above the first threshhold, flag the message as spam or deliver it to Spam folder;

    Reject it immediately (preferably during the SMTP session) or just discard if the score is above the second, higher threshold.

    This way the customer would have more control over the anti-spam system, allowing much less true spam mail to enter the mailbox.

    We hear you and see a clear demand for this feature.

    I want to say that implementing these features requires a lot of investment, and in 2021 Plesk team keeps focusing on the delivery of other improvements (sad, but true).

    We will back to the re-evaluation of these features at the beginning of the next year.

    Please continue to share your use cases and requirements, and it would really helpful if you point to existing solutions that we can review and check before implementation.

    Your feedback is important to us. Thank you, everyone.

  13. Multiple DNS Templates

    Having multiple DNS Templates, ideally selectable in a Service Plan, would add a great deal of flexibility in Plesk. For example, we have one type of Subscription that involves external store-and-forward mail servers for email backup. When a customer selects this type of Service Plan we have to manually adjust the DNS records to point to the appropriate mailservers. So it would be great if we could define multiple DNS Templates, then select the appropriate template in the appropriate Service Plan.

  14. Add Aliases for Subdomains

    You are currently not able to Alias a subdomain through plesk. Instead you must create the subdomain as a primary if you wish to alias it. In many situations it would make sense from an organizational standpoint to keep the subdomain under a main domain while still adding aliases to it. I do not believe this is a technical restriction of the webservers so it would be helpful if plesk allowed you to add aliases to subdomains.

  15. Enable chrooted sftp for more than one user per account

    If I use FTP, I can make as many users as I want. For various reasons, using FTP is not optimal at my workplace. I'd like to be able to let each ftp user I create log in with chrooted sftp.

    I'm able to modify /etc/passwd and /var/www/vhosts/example.org/etc/passwd to make it work, but doing that manually kind of defeats the point of using a tool like Plesk...

    Specifically, I give the ftp user the same home directory, and shell as the initial sftp user has in each passwd file.

    This is a valid request, so we’ll look into it. There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features.

    The original request contains a manual solution, so, we consider to automate it. Please, add a comment if your case will not be solved with that solution.

    Thanks in advance!

  16. Plesk SpamAssassin configuration options

    It would be much better if server-wide and per-mailbox options were available in Plesk to add SpamAssassin rules.

    SpamAssassin can be configured by the command line, but this is difficult for many of us.

  19. provide a way to see why a subscription is locked

    Many times I find that some subscriptions won't sync because they are locked. I'd really like to know why they are locked. So far, I've been able to unlock & sync with no noticeable changes. But I'm left wondering what caused the lock in the first place. And I'm afraid that I'll realize later something no longer works as expected.
