  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  5. Support full DNS for CloudFlare ServerShield

    Currently CloudFlare ServerShield is implemented using partial (CNAME) setup. What is the point in a partial setup when you can benefit from full DNS? You get anycast DNS with CloudFlare on full DNS.

  6. 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

  7. 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:
    http://forum.odin.com/threads/plesk-12-5-rtm-is-out.334212/

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

  11. 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!

  15. 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!

  16. 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!

  17. Limit what aditional administrators can do

    It would be useful to have options for what additional administrators can do within the panel. For example, I run hosting as part of my IT company and normally it's me that does all the work in Panel, however it is often useful to have one of my staff to do some admin tasks but I don't necessarily want that person to be able to perform all tasks such as changing critical server settings.

  18. Secure MySQL connections (from Plesk to externally hosted databases)
