  1. 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

  3. multiple php versions. Switchable via the panel.

    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!

  5. 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.

    Please read the docs: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/customer-guide/websites-and-domains/securing-connections-with-ssltls-certificates/protecting-webmail-and-mail-with-ssltls-certificates.76531/

  7. 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>

  10. fail2ban now supports IPv6 - please upgrade

    At some time you closed the request "fail2ban for IPv6" stating that fail2ban does not support it. That was no doubt correct at the time - but now it does, see https://github.com/fail2ban/fail2ban/tree/0.10

    I'm seeing a lot of warnings in the fail2ban log on my dual stack servers, like this:

    66:1000:b01c:10ab:0:1: [Errno -9] Address family for hostname not supported

    and my log checking software is complaining to me about the overly long fail2ban log.

    See also: https://ctrl.blog/entry/fail2ban-ipv6

    Thanks! Tim.

  11. add the free Clef service for simple, strong multifactor panel authentication without passwords

    Plesk Panel 11 is wonderful. But it could be even more wonderful if included strong, multifactor authentication.

    Clef’s (http://getclef.com) strong MFA is free, super easy to use, and provides next-gen authentication security without passwords.

    Plesk Panel + Clef would make a dynamic duo!

  13. Set end date on autoreply

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

    For instance, I am going on holiday for a week and would like the auto reply to automatically turn off when I return.

    I think the upcoming 12.5 release shall solve your problem:
    1) you will have option of Import/Export database alone in “Databases”
    2) when doing new incremental backup, if no files were modified, then only database will be backed up

    UPD:

    This functionality is now available in Plesk 12.5. Please visit the following forum threads to learn how to install Plesk 12.5:

    Linux:
    http://forum.odin.com/threads/plesk-12-5-rtm-is-out.334213/

    Windows:

    We would appreciate hearing your feedback on implementation of this functionality. Thanks!

  17. Possibility to force SSL on Webmail

    Some users don't know why they should enter https:// if they have to access webmail, they use http://
    http is insecure. Easpecially in combination with unencrypted wireless connections.
    Actually you have to go into the plesk code to set this function somewhere. Why does plesk provide the webmail-login insecure by default?
    If you have setup an Domain Certificate, at least then plesk should offer the option to force ssl on accessing webmail.mydomain.??

    Hi!

    The functionality is now available:
    1. Linux: in the SSL It! Plesk Extension: https://ext.plesk.com/packages/3c4117f6-c05c-4d3b-9173-60f10096a9c4-sslit
    2. Windows: in Plesk Obsidian (by default if SSL is turned on for the domain)

    How to find it in SSL It! Extension:
    1. install SSL It! Extension (it’s available for Plesk 17.8+)
    2. go to > SSL/TLS Certificates
    3. if there is no SSL Certificate installed on the domain – issue one (using, for example, free Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificate)
    4. if an SSL Certificate is installed on the domain, there is a switcher “HTTPHTTPS redirect”, this switcher has an option “Webmail”, turn it on.
    5. Additionally, you can setup HSTS (for webmail too)
    6. Voila!

    We would appreciate hearing your feedback on the implementation of this functionality. Thanks in advance!

  18. Compile PHP 7.2 with Argon2

    Argon2 is a new feature of PHP 7.2 as stated here: http://php.net/releases/720.php. It won the password hashing competition and is the recommended hashing algorithm.

    It must be enabled my re-compiling PHP 7.2 with --with-password-argon2.

  20. add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

    add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

    For developers/database admins, sometimes backups are taken in different
    formats and compression is done in different formats.

    when compressed files other than ZIP file is uploaded for websites data
    files, there is no way to uncompress them via PLESK, one has to go to SSH
    and then extract to use it.

    So compressing files/folders to multiple formats and then extraction from
    multiple compressed formats will allow more ease of use for users where
    they deal with no. of formats!
