  1. Add new site or modify existing site without Apache restart /graceful restart

    For example, Odin uses a system where all the website information is stored inside a NoSQL database, and apache just reads this data with a special module:

    This feature has not gotten many votes during the past five years. Technically, a graceful restart of Apache is unnoticeable for the user as not service interruption occurs. Further, Apaches model loads all configuration data into memory upon start or reload. The Odin link provided in the comments does not lead to a more details explanation of the feature request. And finally, in the Nginx/Apache combination with an increasing number of users considering Nginx-only hosting a change in the Apache worker process won't be sufficient.

    Please provide a sound explanation why a graceful restart of web servers is insufficient for adding or modifying web server configuration.

  2. Customizable Plesk notification email address

    Plesk has the ability to send notifications. However, with the latest version (v18.0.32) these are sent to my "External email address" of the admin user. But since I as admin user enter my Apple iCloud email "name@icloud.com" there, it is used as both sender and recipient and all notification emails end up in the spam folder of my iCloud mail.
    It would be really great if you could separate the administrator email from the notification email address and change it specifically so that email notifications are sent from "Plesk@domain.tld" to the external administrator email "name@icloud.com

    As https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/16956373-set-a-senders-email-address-for-plesk-notification was resolved and the sender address of notifications is now customizable we are wondering whether the issue described in this feature request cannot also be considered solved. The issue here was described as sender and recipient being the same address so that notifications are evaluated as "spam" at the recipient's mailbox. However, now that the sender address can be customized, this could easily be circumvented. 


    Further, the recipient address of notifications can be freely set in the notifications page. 


    Please comment if and why this feature request is still actual.

  3. Oracle Linux 8 Support - CentOS 8 is dead

    Hello,
    is there any chance to give Oracle Linux to became official supported?
    Since the bad news about CentOS 8 EoL on 31.December 2021.
    The best option now is Oracle Linux (100% binary compatible OS)

    By the end of 2022 the market share of Oracle Linux was only half of the next up competitor Alma and less than 1/10 of RHEL, Rocky and Alma combined. For that reason, we'd love to hear from you why you believe that Oracle Linux will be the next big player despite the low market share. 


    For example do you see specific technical reasons why Oracle Linux should be preferred over development for the much more popular platforms? E.g. ARM support and do you actually need it? Are there other aspects that can give good reasons to consider this OS over others?


    Please let us know in the comments.

  4. Add IgnoreHosts options to Plesk`s DMARC implementation

    Currently it is possible to whitelist only domain with IgnoreMailFrom parameter. However there could be false-positive DMARC failures (in case sender's strict policy and mail going throughout relay) due to which it could be useful to have option to whitelist specific network. It would be nice having this option available

    During research, we have found that the request is about passing emails via intermediate mail gateway (which works as an anti-spam solution) and the idea of the request is do not check SPF for these emails on Plesk side.

    In Plesk, there is already exist a solution for that: need to use "SPF Local rules" setting to configure an SPF record which will be used by Plesk to validate emails (including emails from an intermediate anti-spam solution). See KB article for mode details (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360022753174) and Plesk documentation.

    If it does not solve the issue on you Plesk environment and you still need the "IgnoreHost" option, let us know more details about you case for that in comments below.

    This feature request only received 12 votes over the course of 6 years. We have reviewed the request and would like to ask you why you believe that vsftpd brings you advantages over the existing solutions (like ProFTPD). The existing FTP server has proven to be great for millions of websites through all the years. Please give us some good arguments why vsftpd would be even better.

  6. More advanced anti-ddos interface and settings

    This (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000784914-What-DDoS-protection-tools-are-available-in-Plesk) recently updated article shows that we still need paid extensions to better protect our servers against ddos attacks.

    It would be great if Plesk would create a more advanced anti-ddos monitoring tool with a useful interface, alerts, and the right amount of settings to better protect our servers from ddos attacks without the need to install a third party extension with additional costs. Preferably created with "good defaults" in mind.

    Effective DDoS solutions must be installed before the server, not on the server. Because once an attack is able to reach the server, it will block all network bandwith and create a high cpu load so that the server becomes unavailable for other tasks. No on-server DDoS protection can perform good enough to keep a server safe from that. Plesk already has on-server protection, such as Fail2Ban and the built-in firewall capabilities. Nevertheless, we'd love to hear what you are missing as an on-server protection.

    The request asks for and "advanced anti-ddos monitoring tool with a useful interface, alerts, and the right amount of settings".

    Could you please be specific about these points. 

    - What exactly makes an "advanced" tool for you?

    - How do you imagine a "useful" interface?

    - What "alerts" would you like to get?

    - What are the "right amount of settings" for you?

    cronjobs can easily be managed by Linux commands already. They may not be sourced from Plesk, but all tools already exist on the operating system. As cronjobs are read by Plesk from disk, manipulating the corresponding files on disk will set everything you wish. Individual cron files are stored in /var/spool/cron and can be text-edited. You can add files, edit files, append files and delete files using Linux commands. You can also stream-edit files (e.g. insert a commend tag before a line with sed) and also create Linux control while-loops to apply changes to filtered files. Cron can also be controlled directly (https://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/crontab.1.html). 

    Please let us know in details what you are missing or please provide an example how you would like Plesk to work with cron instead.

    This feature request has been reviewed and despite the explanation we are having difficulties understanding what exactly is meant. Is this about sending mails from the server or is this about receiving mails that are addressed to a mailbox on the server? Could you please describe this in more detail who is sender, who is recipient and what you would like to exclude from happening and why?

    "Nginx Plus" - a buzz word for a paid service primarily aimed at load balancing behind an Nginx driven front-end? This service seems to be mainly relevant for single-domain or -app configurations that distribute transactions over a server cluster, but deliver a site to the user as if it came from a single server. 

    We'd love to develop an understanding what this feature request is truly about and how Plesk could best support it. Where in an Nginx Plus scenario is Plesk installed and what would you like to do with it? It seems that in such a scenario Plesk would be a graphical user interface for the Nginx Plus paid service, but not a webspace control panel. So it would have to be a completely different product. Let us know how you think about it, please.

    We'd also love to hear from you how many Nginx Plus installations you…

    In WP Multisite installations you have one single WP controlling many different websites and domains. "Cloning" a multisite installation seems to be a challenge, because when you clone a site, you need to mention a target where to clone the site to (a new URL, a new subdomain). As a multisite installation has many URLs, it seems impossible to clone these to one single domain. It will be unclear which domain is actually cloned or how to map source to target.

    But as always, we're open for ideas and would love to hear more details from you how you imagine the workflow. Please describe in your comments what you expect to happen when you clone a multisite installation, e.g. how you'd want to map source to target(s). Would you for example want to see a dialog where you can enter new domains and subdomains for each existing URL in the…

  12. An option to hide the DNSSEC menu for customers

    Please implement an option in Plesk to hide the DNSSEC menu for customers.

    Currently, it's only possible to hide the DNS management menu completely. It will be useful if there's an option to hide the DNSSEC button only, while the other DNS settings could still be managed by the customer.

  13. External SMTP service per domain

    We know we can leave plesk using an external SMTP service, but it's for the whole server. There are also several guides on how to let postfix use relay with external SMTP, for example AWS SES.

    It would be great if we could use an external SMTP service per domain, using different credentials.

    We are not sure what is meant. At the moment you can set a certificate for the hostname and you can set a certificate for a subdomain. It is also possible to create a subscription that has the same domain name like the hostname, and that subscription can have subdomains all protected by a certificate. It is also possible to have a wildcard certificate for the subscription domain.

    Could you please describe in detail what you would like to equip with an SSL certificate and how this is linked to encrypted mail connections as stated in the one existing comment?

  15. Support for HTTP/2 on apache (without using nginx as proxy)

    Hi,
    It seems some Plesk users would like to have support for HTTP/2 on apache directly (without using nginx as a proxy).
    We do not clearly understand cases when it is required. Why using nginx as a proxy in front of the Apache is not an option? Could you please let us know how this feature should work in terms of workflow, in your opinion? We welcome any feedback and would be happy to receive examples to investigate the question in more detail.

    This feature request aims at a skill that a load balance shall have, not what a server connected to a load balancer shall have. Could you please provide more details what exactly you expect a server to provide so that a load balancer can find out that the server is authoritative for a domain? At first sight this would be the IP address that is registered for the domain in DNS. But what method would you want to suggest instead?
