  4. Custom Bookmarks on homesite / start-screen

    It would be a good idea to put the bookmarks back in the panel. In some earlier versions of plesk ( 9 or ten i think) we could generate a bookmark for every website of the plesk-system (i.e. a special hosting or a database) wich enable a solution for 1click administration of our most used actions in plesk.

    thanks for bring it back again!

  5. Fix File and Folder Permissions for docroot from Plesk UI

    When switching from Apache to FastCGI the Service Provider needs to change the permissions for the customer from apache:apache to <user>:psacln

    This can be fixed by having a button in Plesk which does:

    find $PLESKDOMAINHTTPDOCS -not -user $PLESKDOMAINOWNER -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chown $PLESKDOMAINOWNER:psacln
    find $PLESKDOMAINHTTPDOCS -type d -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0755
    find $PLESKDOMAINHTTPDOCS -type f -not -name ".pl" -not -name ".cgi" -not -name ".sh" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0644
    find $PLESKDOMAINHTTPDOCS -type f -name "

  6. Create daily md5-hashes of the web-content of a domain, to quickly identify tampering or hacking.

    Let Plesk on every night optionally create/compare md5-hashes from all files in the domains storage-space (web,httpdoc,ftp) and update this in a simple list (database), sortable by date of last change, size, number of changes. Indicating "changed files in the last xx days" to have a time-window to drill down.

    In addition, accumulate all vhosts together into a seperate "Admin-View", where ALL domains are put together alphabetically.

    Add an additional button "snapshot", so one could create a list of all webfiles on request. For example, when an incident has been cleaned, then click "snapshot" and then wait some time to see…

  7. Sogo Webmail

    Add Sogo as a webmail alternative in Plesk.

    Sogo share your calendars, address books and mails in your community with a completely free and open source solution

    Sogo is a great webmail solution and provides native Microsoft ActiveSync support. Mobile devices such as Apple iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry 10 can fully synchronize emails, contacts, events and tasks with SOGo.

  8. Ability to migrate just configuration, no content

    Sometimes we have to transfer domains with very large data. By the time the migration has finished (a few hours later) a lot of the data is out of sync. So we have to manually rsync the data across again.

    Therefore, we would request the option to just migrate domain configuration and no data. So just set up the domain, all mailboxes subdomains etc.. but leave all content behind. Basically just a skeleton of the domain.

  10. Django/Python Support

    Hi, I have been trying to install a django site onto my server which has plesk and it has taken me weeks and i have paid countless dollars to fix this. I believe you should offer this support or a type of application when it is installed automatically the same as if you click install wordpress you should have the option to click install "DJANGO".

    Many Thanks

  12. Firewall - Import/Export IP List and Bulk Add

    Would it be possible to add an import/export feature to the Firewall settings or at least provide a bulk add capability.

    Adding IPs one at a time is very time consuming to say the least.

    A simple solution would be to permit a comma separated list to go into the text field.

  13. Smarthost/External SMTP

    It would be nice to have an external SMTP (smarthost) ability for a per-domain basis (most mail services have this)

    We use this for external scanning, data leak prevention and more.

    Can this be be done?

  15. 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.

  16. 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?

    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.

    AA
