  1. Keep server up2date with "apt-get" or "yum" (update PHP, Apache, MySQL, etc)

    Hi everybody,

    Following my post on the plesk forum, I propose to the team having a features which allow the update a server (like an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade) but directly from plesk to update the server.

    Indeeed, I find really strange that there is not way to maintain a server up-to-date and we are oblige to directly to the server to launch this operation.

    Regards,

  2. add BROTLI support to nginx and apache

    as brotli seams to be a up to 20% better comression library than gzip and used by many CDN Providers it should be possible to switch on in plesk.

  5. PHP GD webp support

    The version of GD provided with Plesk PHP packages does not have support for webp enabled by default. Almost all browsers now support this format.

  6. Delete mail after forwarding

    I would like to use an E-Mail address as an outgoing E-Mail address with no postbox behind it. All E-Mails should be forwarded to another E-Mail address.
    Currently you can set up forwarding but if you check "Use postbox" than the mails will be kept on the server although they have been forwarded. If you uncheck it, it is impossible to send emails from that address.

    So please add at least an option to delete mails after forwarding them.

    In Plesk 18.0.37 added the option to automatically remove emails forwarded from a mailbox in Plesk. The feature is disabled by default. To enable it, go to “Mail”, click the desired mailbox, open the “Forwarding” tab and select the “Do not deliver copies of forwarded emails to the Plesk mailbox” checkbox.

    If you need this feature for Plesk for Windows, please vote here: https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549/suggestions/44158872

  7. Email import tool

    It would be a great idea to be able to import mail for individual email accounts via POP3 from other servers.

    This would be great for customers migrating to you so that they can keep all their email.

    Would just need fields such as:
    -Hostname
    -Username
    -Password
    -Port
    -Encryption

    Implemented as the functionality of Site Import 1.2.0 https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/onyx/change-log/#17811-mu20180516

    Added the ability to import the content of mailboxes hosted on third-party servers with the IMAP access into mailboxes hosted on a Plesk server. Now users can import emails from Gmail or Yahoo! Mail mailboxes and from mailboxes managed by control panels (for example, Plesk or cPanel). All folders (including custom folders) and emails contained in them are imported. The “read” or “unread” status of imported emails is preserved.

  8. Search mail logs from Gui

    We have many support requests from our customers (non technical) to search logs and find if a message was sucessfull delivered and consume much from our support.

    If the customer could search logs from a specific sender ou destination, filtering by date, will be great for us.

    We released the ‘Mail Log Browser’ extension

    https://ext.plesk.com/packages/942273dc-a99b-4744-9e8f-c4a4b047c63d-log-browser

    This extension allows you to check the statuses of all emails sent to and from your server by reviewing maillog and filtering by date, source, or any string pattern; also it’s possible to check mail logs in real-time (‘tail -fn0’ analog).

    It’s available for Plesk Administrators and supports Postfix and Qmail mail servers.

  9. Let's encrypt: add domain aliases

    The let's encrypt extension is great, except... it doesn't work for me: It doesn't add domain aliases. I have domains like "typing-error.de", "typing-eror.de", "typing-errror.de", "typing-error.com" etc. (you get the idea). As-is, only the primary domain is added to the certificate.

    In  Plesk 18.0.54, published July 18th, 2023, Plesk has added the ability  to add Transport Layer Security Authentication (TLSA) DNS records to  domains’ DNS zones in Plesk. Such records are most commonly used to  implement DNS-based Authentication of Named Entities (DANE). With this  update the most popular DANE scenario is covered in Plesk for Linux.

    Now, with Plesk 18.0.56, published October 10th, 2023, the SSL It! extension supports DANE that ensures reliable encryption for email transport. When a Let’s Encrypt certificate is being issued, TLSA DNS records of  email services will now automatically contain information about the  certificate.

    Please let us know your thoughts on this feature or whether you require additional functions.

  11. 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

    Nextcloud Beta is available as an extension now
    https://ext.plesk.com/packages/02092dca-71cd-4045-a017-667a57248a03-nextcloud

    Just go to the Extension Catalog in Plesk to install.

    Nextcloud is a solution similar to Owncloud, coming from the same vendor, but with extra functionality and also more common and trendy

    Feedback and further requests for adjustments can be provided to beta-extensions/at/plesk.com and/or to an online survey at https://forms.gle/9ZGifFBZo8a4t7vU8
    We are eager to hear from you!

    And thanks for your patience!

  15. Add subdomains in one Let's Encrypt certificate

    Add subdomains to one Let's Encrypt certificate.

    Why?

    Because Let's Encrypt has currently limit 5 certificates / 7 days on one domain.

    Example: in one Let's Encrypt cerftificate will be this DNS names: example.com; www.example.com; sub1.example.com; sub2.example.com

    I think it will be helpful if you can simply add your own domains and subdomains in Let's Encrypt Certificate.

    Thanks!

    Available since Plesk Obsidian RC3. Windows: modern version of MailEnable required (shipped with Plesk), Linux: modern versions of Postfix (shipped with Plesk) and Dovecot (shipped by most OS vendors) required.

  19. Add management of webmail SSL certificates

    I would like to propose the management of SSL certificates for webmail in plesk panel.
    Now, unless you use a wildcard certificate, you cannot secure your webmail with a valid SSL certificate.
    Please make the SSL certificate used for webmail.<domain> .
    Please also add a configurable central url for webmail, with SSL support, and add a redirect option to that url for webmail.<domain>
    E.G. visitors for http://webmail.<customerdomain> will be redirected to https://<configuredwebmailurl>

  20. Set a senders email address for Plesk notifications

    I am sending mails from an external server, my Plesk Servers do not even have mail setup. Plesk offers the option to send notification mails (like backup errors,...) using an external SMTP server, but all mails get sent using the mail address
    root@servername.domain.tld

    My SMTP server does not have this mail address or even domain setup. I would like to set a custom email address for Plesk to send mails from in order to not have to set up a domain and mail address for every Plesk server.
