  1. Add limits to backup scheduling

    We have some users abusing the Plesk backup functionality. For example, they schedule hourly backups with sites that are multiple gigabytes in size. When we have a couple of those users, our servers are running scheduled backups all day causing 100% IO-wait load.

    It would be great if Administrator can limit the frequency of user backups, eg. a limit of once a day, once a week, once a month.

    We currently disable user backup functionality to prevent our machines running backups all day.

  2. Increase the logs available in MailEnable after log rotation

    When installing Plesk with MailEnable, by default Plesk removes MailEnable logfiles every 24 hours.

    According to this KB (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001102353), this functionality is made in purpose to optimize mail statistics, but this is not acceptable.

    Additionally, you are offering the possibility to apply this workaround (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/213397889), but this workaround is not valid for us because we don't want to customize the FTP and HTTP logs location and we have the log files in different disk volumes.

    Please, provide the possibility to configure the log rotation settings for MailEnable respecting our hosting company needs.

  4. Allow disabling of Let's Encrypt on a domain by domain basis

    Currently, when giving users the ability to access SSL to add their own certificates, they can also view Let's Encrypt and create free certificates. It would be useful to allow users access to add their own certificates without giving them access to use Let's Encrypt and there is currently no way to do this.

    Additionally, any users logging in to manage their domains can see Let's Encrypt (although cannot use it) and we keep getting asked about it, so it would be useful to hide this off for users unless they specifically need access.

  5. PostgreSQL integration and tuning

    Please do better integration of PostgreSQL into Plesk like CPU and memory usage in Health Monitoring and Dump button in Database page. Please also add PostgreSQL tuning into Plesk, especially for modern hardware with 32 or 64 GB memory and 4 to 8 cores and fast SSD or NVMe drives. Thanks!

  6. Dovecot: mdbox and alternate storage support

    http://forum.odin.com/threads/dovecot-mdbox-and-altmove-support-in-plesk.334620/

    It would be really handy if we could, via Plesk panel or some cli utility, o switch from Maildir to mdbox as mailbox storage format and enable alternate storage for old emails. This way we can optimize the disk usage by using the fast storage media for recent emails, while the old stuff can go on a slower, cheaper media. Will also help a lot in growing our mail customer base without forking out ridiculous amounts of money for expensive fast disks arrays to keep up with the growth rate.

  8. Custom URL redirects: variability of both source URL and destination URL and the ability to create more than one redirect.

    It would have been amazing if plesk users and admins were able to easily and via the panel create domain redirection like you are able to do in cpanel. http://prntscr.com/1k9mql
    This saves a lot of time from users and hosting companies helpdesks.

    In the initital feature request it was not clear that the focus was on a regex driven, variable redirect that depends on source URLs and should be able to provide a mapping between source and target. It is also requested that these redirects shall be done on the front-end web server level, not as an Apache .htaccess solution.

    We have re-opened the request as per user comment it was clarified thoroughly. 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.

  10. Start docker container with additional parameters

    Usually, when I use existing docker images from docker-hub or even my own, there are plenty of options I would like to provide on start of a new container. Currently plesk does not support that. From the commandline a docker-container can be instantiated with several image-specific parameters. I would like to be able to do that from plesk , too.

  13. Implement Dropbox's (zxcvbn) password strength library

    Please consider implementing Dropbox's password strength library in future versions of plesk. https://github.com/dropbox/zxcvbn

    Right now (Plesk Onyx Version 17.8.11) very secure passwords such as applaud-bisque-batch-forefoot won't even pass the "medium" filter, and very bad passwords such as Pa$$word123 are marked "Strong".

    Brute force cracking continues to get more sophisticated and the current strength ratings are misleading.

  14. Create Reports for Clients

    Plesk currently has many great extensions. It would be amazing if you could get the data from these extensions and generate report for customer about its website.

    For example, report could include:

    • Page speed optimization (Data from the Google PageSpeed Insights extension)

    • SEO optimization (Data from the SEO Toolkit extension)

    • Website security (data from Wordpress Toolkit, Sucuri Security Scanner, Advisor and Revisium)

    • Information about updated plugins and themes (data from Wordpress Toolkit)

  16. Set day for full backup on incremental backup.

    Requesting the ability to set a day of a week, or day of the month that the full backup will be ran if using incremental backup.

    reason for request:
    for our setup, we have 15 plesk servers running all of one SAN. we find that on the day of the week the full backup is running, the IO / load on the SAN is much higher. it would be nice to be able to space out those servers by selecting days the full backups are preformed.

  19. Add XML API operations to manage Backup Password and Scheduled Backup

    Some useful functionalities of Backup in Web UI are not available in the XML API. Like configuring Password or Scheduled Backup. Those operations are at server level.

    I think it would be useful to add the 4 following operations :

    backup-manager / set-secure-backup-settings
    backup-manager / get-secure-backup-settings

    With attributes like :
    - use-password-protection : boolean
    - password : string

    backup-manager / set-schedule-settings
    backup-manager / get-schedule-settings

    With attributes like :
    - enable : boolean
    - period : 86400 | 604800 |2592000
    - hour : integer from 0 to 23
    - minute : 0 | 15 | 30 |45
    - use-incremental : boolean…

  20. Allow DKIM/DMARC/SPF records for the server's hostname domain

    This thing that Plesk does not present DKIM public key, referred to server's hostname, is quite annoying. cPanel does, for example.
    And I'm not going to mess things up with changing hostname, so to match it with a newly created domain (whose purpose would be just having a DKIM in place).
