    • 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.

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

        • Add DNS TTL per entry

          Add a DNS TTL per entry option instead of just SOA TTL.

          This will make it more inline with products like cPanel etc and is very useful when using dynamic dns to have low TTL but other entries like mx can have a high TTL

          • MYSQL Performance Tuning and Monitoring

            t would be a good idea to have an SQL section where users can run optimization scripts like MYSQLTUNER etc and enter suggestioned changes in a GUI that directly change the mysql.conf directly and correctly.

            An ability to monitor performance and tweak would be ideal, making the task of SQL performance monitoring and tweaking far easier.

            Also optimize commands and other tasks could be run for this panel.

            as well as optimize and the ability to add it to cron for weekly or monthly.

                  Thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases. Note that Plesk supports multiple mail servers and if we are going to add this feature, it’s possible that it won’t be available for all supported mail servers at once

                • 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.

                    It would be useful to be able to configure auto replies so that they start automatically on a specific date.

                    If I don't want to forget to set it before leaving.. or i'm sure there's many reasons!

                        • Add Mailman support to Let's Encrypt

                          Please add Mailman support to Let's Encrypt.

                          Ideally, one could issue either a certificate directly for lists.domain.com or a wildcard certificate for *.domain.com.

                          Furthermore, a secure connection should be enforceable.

                          Thanks!

                              As we have to use apache, i don't like to go for an aditional nginx proxy just to simulate HTTP/2 ;-)

                              I think apache is capable to handel HTTP/2 :-D

                              • 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

                                    • Ability to customize nginx per site template e.g. Location /, Location ~, etc

                                      Hello, I'm using Plesk Onyx and I've also bumped into problems with not being able to set correct NGINX Directives.

                                      Regarding nginx and nginx configuration for various CMS, Web Apps etc, I see that a lot of directives need to be set and there are a lot of scattered issues around in the web.
                                      For example most CMS will require a
                                      location / { ... }
                                      or for google's pagespeed test we need to add expire headers e.g.
                                      location ~* \.*.(jpg|jpeg|png|gif|ico|css|js)$ {
                                      expires 14d;
                                      }

                                      I think the Model to building the final vhost conf file should be revised instead…
