  1. Remove subdomain keeping all files and directories

    I should be able to remove a subdomain, keeping all its files and folders. eg:

    • dev.mydomain.com Root directory: /mydomain.com
    • www.mydomain.com Root directory: /mydomain.com

    Currently if I remove the subdomain, I'm told that all its relevant files will be removed, BUT, it is in use by the main domain. I need the assurance, and a checkbox to KEEP the root directory and all associated files.

  2. Make web stats available to FTP accounts

    The screen says that the web stats will need authentication with ftp account. However this is false because only website owner can authenticate for the web stats. So my request is to really accept ftp users as being able to view web stats.

  3. Allow the user to modify specific mailbox settings.

    Allow the Pleask user to specify a mailbox with no (zero) capacity for the purpose of managing email from a 3rd party such as Gmail. This would allow email to be forwarded to Gmail without the exceeded capacity error but also allow Gmail to send mail through the mail domain. Currently this needs to be modified by admin and it's hard to explain each time to the admin.

  5. Obsidian Scheduled Tasks update has less functionlity due to cron style Version 18.0.25 Update #2

    Version 18.0.25 Update #2 Windows

    New Cron style schedule tasks. This was such a poorly thought out feature to implement and as such a bad one.

    It's great that Plesk want's to standardise the control panel between platforms but now in the case of Windows servers the experience is worse than before. Previously there were checkboxes that you could tick, so if you wanted a task to execute every 5 minutes then you could just ticket the appropriate boxes.

    Now in attempt to bring cron style to Windows without the / character this has become really laborious having to enter…

  6. "Add another" button when adding mail

    It happened to me a few times that I had to create a bunch of mails, over 100 mail accounts. I'd be really nice to have an "add another" button on the bottom, which saves the new account, but reloads the page so you can add another. A minor feature, but think it could make someone's life easier.

    Cheers.

  10. Migrate/move scheduled task with Plesk windows to a different subscription

    I would like to suggest the feature move scheduled task created under a subscription level to another subscription.

    With Linux, it's possible to modify /var/spool/cron/crontabs but windows such changes it not possible.

    Thank you.

  11. For Plesk Email Security it would be helpful if the settings for all email addresses of a domain could be changed at once.

    Some domains are managed by their owner, some domains by a administrator. Not for all domains it is possible to activate or deactivate some features, as example tagging or rejecting of spam. So I use as default a spam tagging but have to change to reject spam per domain.

  12. Stop sending the user back to the root path in file manager after clicking on refresh

    In the file manager, when I press the refresh button of my browser, plesk changes the path to the root path of domain rather than refreshing the actual folder path.

    For example:
    I have a domain called tomydna
    It is a wordpress installation
    So, sometimes, I want to go to wp-content/cache/ to see if cache files and folders are created. Sometimes, I must click on refresh button to see if the server just created new files or new folders.
    Unfortunately, when I press the refresh button of my browser there is an unexpected behavior, Plesk sends me back to the…

  13. Check if Google Authenticator is enabled for a customer

    Would be useful to check from CLI the status of the Google Authenticator extension for a specific customer.
    For example plesk bin extension --status google-authenticator (customer_name).

  14. Serverwide scheduled backups -> UI to select what is contained

    I'd really like to have a UI to select what is contained in a serverwide scheduled backup.
    We have a couple of domains where people dump photos and videos for further processing, amounting to 100s of GBs, and we don't need backups of those.
    The UI you got for the restore dialog would be just fine.
    I think it makes more sense to select what is contained, than what to exclude.

  15. Add option to select default TLD for staging

    Currently, WP Toolkit offers possibility to add a subdomain prefix for staging.

    So, considering the main domain is "domain.tld", WP toolkit offers "staging.domain.tld" as an option.

    We use a slightly different scheme, and it our setup our staging will looks like "domain.review" (note "review" instead of tld).

    It will be nice to specify default staging tld (as it currently implemented for "staging" subdomain) and have possibility to use such scheme of the staging (instead of selecting the domain from the list manually)

  17. Enabling anonymous Git read access for a repository

    A developer which has pushed his code to his git repository in plesk (through Local repository on your workstation funcion) is only accesible through authentication. That's OK.

    The developer is ready to make his code publicly available.
    Unfortunately that is not possible but it would be a nice feature to have.

    Maybe not to use the same private repository, but likely in a way to clone it and make it anonymous available only with read acces through http(s) , ex. https://<url>/example.git

  18. Add in Plesk Panel an option to automatic assign an IP Address for Mail Service for new Domains

    Two IP Addresses added in IP Address pool for Plesk.

    Having one IP Address for the new Domain and a different one for Outgoing mail.

    Automatically assign the second ip for Mail Service without the need to do it via CLI command.

    In this case the first IP (Domain IP) is using he HELO and then second IP (Service Mail Outgoing IP) is just to send emails.

    Actually we have dropped this functionality from the Dynamic list due to low usage. It still could be found on the Active list.
    But we will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular. Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
