  1. 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.

  4. Implement DNS Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) resource record

    Certification Authority Authorization (CAA), defined in RFC 6844, is a standard that allows domain name owners to control which CAs are allowed to issue certificates for their properties.

    ssllabs.com has implemented the detection for this record when checking for the SSL grade they give. To prevent getting graded down and use state of the art techniques for ssl security I would usggest to allow adding those nameserver record.

    RFC: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6844

  5. Git webspace

    At the moment it's only possible to configure FTP-Access to webspaces in Plesk. I would like to have webspaces I can fill via git (pull, clone etc.) and configure it via Plesk.

  6. Allow SFTP for Personal FTP Repository

    It's good that FTPS is now supported for the Personal FTP Backup Repository. But it would be even better if Backups could be transferred to another server via SSH/SFTP instead of just FTPS, for a completely encrypted connection and data transfer.

  8. Add SRS - Sender Rewriting Scheme to Linux

    SRS is available in Windows on external mail servers, but it isn't available in any mail server in Linux. More and more domains have SPF and more and more mail servers reject e-mails that don't pass SPF check.

    So please add support for SRS in Linux.

  10. Have an option to deliver email addressed to VERP-style email addresses.

    Postfix already has the option, but it doesn't seem to be supported on Plesk.

    I want to use VERP so I can automatically process bounce messages with a script. I send out bulk email with a return-path like bounces+uid-john=example.com@ourdomain.com and I want the bounces to be delivered to bounces@ourdomain.com

    Postfix has the configuration parameter recipientdelimiter. If I set that in /etc/postfix/main.cf, the server accepts the email and passes it to pleskvirtual. But then it is silently discarded instead of being delivered to the bounces mailbox.

    The only way I see with the current set up to deliver…

  11. Support MySQL 8

    I would like to see support for the upcoming MySQL 8.
    Currently there is no support inside plesk and using a possible workaround with docker isn't possible out of the box.

    MySQL Community Server 8.0.4 is already a Release Candidate.

  12. change password next login

    Ask user to change password at next login screen after reset.
    We the providers could generate a temp password (customer asks for a reset), and after the first login screen, plesk will force ask from the client to change our temp password.

    This functionality is now available in the Plesk Onyx 17.9 Preview 5. We encourage you to check the implementation and let us know what you think. Please visit the following forum thread to learn how to access the preview: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-17-9-preview.348675/#post-854032

    Enable the feature: plesk bin admin --enable-access-domain "plesk.example.org"
    Disable the feature: plesk bin admin --disable-access-domain

    To make Plesk easier to use, we would like to ask you to take part in a short user experience test about “Plesk Customization URL”. It should not take you more than a few minutes to participate.

  14. Dovecot

    http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=262887

    I'd like to start a thread for Dovecot support under Plesk 11, since Plesk 10 development is entering maintenance mode and I know there's a lot of people out there who have been asking for Dovecot support for quite a while now.

    Post here if you want Dovecot support in Plesk, or if you have experience with setting up Dovecot with Plesk 11.

  15. Direct or faster access to phpMyAdmin

    Currently it's too difficult to login to the phpMyAdmin interface. Users have to login in on plesk, choose their domain (if they have more than one), go to website & domains, select the databse page, then select the database they want to use and now they can finally open the webadmin. Too much steps! And if the session ran out, you have to do all these steps again.

    The fasted way would be to allow that users can open the phpMyAdmin URL without loggin in to Plesk and only use their credetials for the database. I could understand if that…

  16. Easy removal X-Powered-By HTTP headers

    By default the HTTP header 'x-powered-by: PleskLin' is added to HTTP responses.
    And with PHP, even the version number is included: 'x-powered-by: PHP/7.3.5'

    For security it is better to not give such information, as it may expose you are using outdated software with known vulnerabilities.
    Currently it is possible to remove these headers, but it requires some manual actions using SSH (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000385274)

    My suggestion is to create page to be able to manage such header additions for all websites and services.

  17. WordPress Toolkit: Reseller Plans to use individual sets

    A a reseller I would like to be able to create my own specific plug-in 'sets' for my WordPress customers. Normally this should be done at this level, not by the 'top level' administrator.

    Maybe it is possible to use the same tab and visualize created sets from resellers with an icon.

    Once upon a time we have released sets for resellers in WPT v5.2 a couple of minutes ago.

    We’ve also managed to ensure that resellers can automatically provision WordPress with one of their sets when a new subscription is created.

    Let us know on our forum if you have any feedback.
