  1. powerdns support

    It'd be awesome if we can get support for powerdns support instead of bind9.

  4. Docker Compose to use over the admin panel

    I would like to administrate multiple Docker container via Compose, editable over the Admin panel. Some easy deploying mechanism including the Volumes of the container from my local machine over upload or git would be nice.

  5. Multiple MySQL Versions configureable over Panel

    I'd be happy if you could integrate multiple MySQL Versions into Plesk. Each Customer should be able to choose his MySQL. Also choosing more than only one version should be implemented.

  6. Plesk SpamAssassin configuration options

    It would be much better if server-wide and per-mailbox options were available in Plesk to add SpamAssassin rules.

    SpamAssassin can be configured by the command line, but this is difficult for many of us.

  7. Include pgadmin for Postgres management in Plesk

    phpPgAdmin support was dropped starting from Plesk Onyx 17.8
    This means that Plesk does not have any management tool for Postgres databases shipped with it.

    I suggest to include pgadmin in Plesk installation since the latest ve
    rsion of this software (2018-09-06 - pgAdmin 4 v3.3 Released) has just been released, with adequate security. More info about it you can find here:
    https://www.pgadmin.org/

  8. Ability to change favicon.ico for Plesk on permanent basis

    At this moment you can change favicon.ico by replacing /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs/favicon.ico, however it will be replaced on Plesk update.

    It is also not possible to make it permanent using custom theme from Plesk branding guide.

    Please make a way to customize favicon.ico on permanent basis

  9. Backup manager: Include Docker containers

    Currently docker containers are skipped by the backup manager, would be great to include them as well.

  10. 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…

  11. Add ip manually to fail2ban

    It is not possible to add an ip manually to fail2ban trough Plesk interface. Sometimes you detect an offending ip address which you want to ban from your system, before it is detected by recidive rule.

  13. Windows Fail2Ban

    The new security option for plesk 12 is Fail2Ban, but it is only for Linux version.

    There is an opensorce for windows.

    http://www.digitalruby.com/securing-...icated-server/

    I suggest to Parallels Team include this.

  14. Nginx Cache purge

    Please, consider to implement some sort of cache purge functionality available from Plesk web interface, because if cache TTL gets extended to match Site needs, it gets complicated, i.e. need to go over Linux Terminal to purge it. A Wordpress integration would be just super fantastic, but I understand, it is not realistic to wish it.
    Thank you!

  15. Show reason of deferred message in mail queue

    Actually it's possible to show deferred messages headers in : Tools and settings > mail server settings > mail queue

    It would be very useful if it's possible to show the reason why the message is deffered or stuck in the queue (/var/spool/postfix/defer).

  16. Possibility to activate DKIM and DomainKey without active local DNS

    Please make possible generating and activating DKIM/DomainKey without having active local DNS server. Consider following situation:

    You have a website that use as sender your domain when sending email and you are want to follow best practices in order to reach inbox, but this domain uses another server for DNS (cloudflare for example, godday, etc.). In this case you need to have DKIM/DomainKey signed mails without the need to activate local DNS server. Also mail management could be set off for that domain, but mails still should be able to be signed.

    I believe that this scenrario is real and…

  17. Complete DMARC Support

    The DMARC support in Plesk Onyx 17.5.3 ist incomplete. If an incoming email is rejected due to a DMARC fail there is no mailer daemon generated to inform the sender of this email.

    Please add this important feature to DMARC support. Otherwise it would not be usable for most customers.

  18. Let's Encrypt: separate cert for webmail (without main domain in SAN)

    We have a setup where webmail.example.com and example.com point to another server than our Plesk instance. Because of this we can't enable Let's Encrypt on Webmail since the CSR contains webmail.example.com and example.com.
    So I hope you consider adding an option to only create webmail.example.com (without SAN example.com)

  19. Limit amount of backups per customer

    Hey guys,

    I am sure that I speak for hundreds of users when I say that having a limit on backups per customers and or subscriptions should be an important and available option. The option to also limit backups based on the customers subscription storage size will be even better. Otherwise, customers who overuse the backup option will dramatically increase storage space on the server without realization of the administrator. It wouldn't be ideal for an administrator to enter the dumps folder to delete random customer backups. Really hope you guys can resolve this and add this feature as soon…

  20. Webmail - Enable users to edit out of office (auto-response) message in webmail directly

    I'm not sure if any webmail option right now allows the email user to update their out of office / auto response message. I think the email user has to login to Plesk to be able to edit that right now (which is annoying).

    Anyone have any suggestion on this?
