  1. Add an option to lock/freeze a website

    Hi,

    some Hosts (e.g. Strato) use a functionality to completely lock a site. This is very useful for customers that dont want to do any changes to their website anymore but use an old version of a cms and forget/dont want to upgrade.

    Of course there should be a warning about the consequences like non working file caching etc.

    • WHMCS Email Templates

      OK ... here are the facts.

      Plesk is getting better with great features.

      WHMCS is probably the billing system that most use since it is affordable and easy to work with.

      Ergo ... Plesk need to provide email templates on WHMCS that we can use.

      Not sure why you have until, unable to work with WHMCS team to create a comprehensive email templates like cPanel's.

      You understand the flow; Team WHMCS understands its billing system.

      These are simple things you can do to remove this idea that Plesk is difficult to use which we hear from developers and businesses here.

        • Prevent users from installing SSL certificates

          As reseller (or administrator) we should be able to prevent customers installing a selfsigned or 3rd party bought SSL certificate themselves.

          It's not possible to disable the 'SSL support' check box within the
          'Service Plans' menu section 'Hosting Parameters' because as Administrator we install customer SSL certificates by API. Disabling 'SSL support' will also disable installing SSL certificates by API.

                • Allow the Plesk admin to modify the "Account Activation" notification that is sent when creating a new user

                  Allow the Plesk administrator to modify the "Account Activation" notification email that is sent when a new user is created.

                  Currently there is no way to change this in Tools & Settings > Notifications.

                  • Support for modern web statistics programs such as GoAccess

                    It would be nice if https://goaccess.io/ was supported for statistics.

                    - Written in C, so faster than a perl script such as awstats.
                    - Can be used in the traditional way to generate static HTML statistics pages from log files.But a more advanced integration could also provide real-time statistics.

                    • Enable additional Schedule Backup with or without Full Backup

                      Enable additional Schedule Backup and provide an option to disable the obligation to make a Full Backup (letting user the option to create additional Incremental Backups, without messing things like repeated Full Backups). This already happends if the Admin and Client both setup Backups, it create multiple Full Backups which is not necessary since Admin Backups are create in behalf user.

                        In fact, you placed multiple requests inside this one. Let’s go with each of them one by one:

                        1. Additional schedule backup: there is request for this feature https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/3703858-multiple-backup-rules-or-more-options. Since it took just lots of votes, we are planning its implementation now.

                        2. Disable full backup and collect incremental parts only. This is possible even now. Customer (or admin) can choose yearly backup with daily or weekly increments. This way there will be single full backup done once a year (first time) and all other daily/weekly backups will be just increments. Please update what you think about such scenario and why it might do not work for you.

                        3. In that feature that I mentioned – about adding more scheduled backups – there also will be possibility for admin to watch and manage all scheduled customer’s backups – as one list. There also will be additional leverages, buttons and…

                      • Enable email subject and keywords to be blocked in spamfilter

                        Allow users and admin to select subject lines and keywords as well as keywords in the email body to be added to the spamfilter blacklist.

                        Currently spammers are just changing domains and sending the same email templates.

                          • Take *.domain.com as the CN of Wildcard certificates in the LE extension

                            At the moment the CN of the wildcard certificate is still domain.com and not *.domain.com. The wildcard is just in the alternative domain names.
                            Please use the wildcard as the CN

                            • Website Importer must allow FTPS connections

                              Let's face it, any host doing things right will have plain FTP disabled. Therefore the Website Importer will almost always fail. It absolutely has to be able to connect over FTPES/FTPS. Is this even on the roadmap? It's a great feature, if only it could work.

                                To configure the allowed FTP connections, go to Tools & Settings > Security Policy. We recommend that you only allow FTPS connections. As result – no mentioned problem with plain FTP.
                                Or do you mean something else? If so, what is your feature request?

                                    Without this component on Windows servers, it is impossible to connect to a MSSQL database from PHP. The Plesk Installer should allow the installation of such component, or even install it automatically when MS SQL Server Express is installed.

                                        • Additional directive disappears

                                          In relation to the https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000180225-Additional-PHP-directives-disappeared, based on my ticket request.

                                          Please add the non-destructive inheritance for the "Additional-PHP-directives" box, from service level plan to the domain level.

                                          Right now, any directive on a non-locked domain will be erased whenever a service plan changes.
