  1. Move domains between subscriptions

    This is a feature that needs to be brought to the Plesk Control Panel.

    This request has been outstanding since Plesk 10:
    http://kb.parallels.com/en/113938

    This wasn't possible in Plesk 11.5.
    http://kb.parallels.com/en/121606

    It still does not appear possible in Plesk 12.

    At the very least, breaking a domain out into its own subscription would be a good first step.

    Search words:
    I cannot move domain to another subscription
    move webspaces
    move a domain within a multi-domain subscription
    multi-domain subscription
    migration manager
    transfer a domain
    separate subscription
    split subscription
    break out domain from subscription

  2. Support for HTTP Strict Transport Security / HSTS

    I'm wondering if Plesk also will implent HTTP Strict Transport (or HSTS) Security in the GUI. It's an extra layer of security for sites who need to be extra secure.

    It's being done with a special header (mod_headers for Apache) and a TLS connection. The client (browser) can then verify if the server is the real server and not a man-in-the-middle server/attack.

    It's as simple as adding the following code to the vhost config (HTTPS only!):

    Apache:
    Header always set Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=31536000; includeSubDomains"

    Nginx:
    add_header Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=31536000; includeSubDomains";

  4. Add nginx-only hostings

    I'll like to create a hosting that only use Nginx as webserver. Also I'll like to do this with Node.js, but I think it will not be approved.

    Current scope for Plesk Onyx is to enable an ability to serve all http(s) requests by Nginx only.

    Note: apache will still be installed. Switching of apache to optional component is subject for the next release.

    Update:

    The ability to turn off Apache and have content served by nginx only on a per-website basis is now available in the latest Plesk Onyx 17.0.14 preview. 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-preview-and-feedback.337172

    How to try this feature:

    Go to any website, click Apache & nginx Settings and deselect the “Proxy mode” checkbox under nginx settings. The feature is also available in Service Plans.

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

    Good news everyone.

    SNI for Mail (for Windows and Mail Enable) is already available in the Plesk Onyx 17.9 Preview 9 (https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/onyx/change-log/#contents-179-preview9): “Windows: Starting with MailEnable version 10.20, users can secure mail for a domain with individual SSL/TLS certificates”

    For Linux users: for now, there is no SNI support in Postfix, but they already working on it. When SNI support is available in Postfix, we’ll start the implementation in Plesk.

  6. 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.??

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Redirect from HTTP to HTTPS for secured webmails

    You should place a redirect from http://webmail.domain.tld to https. Even the option "Hosting Settings > Permanent SEO-safe 301 redirect from HTTP to HTTPS" won't redirect the webmail; in any case these should be two separate options as the website may not support HTTPS yet.

  11. Support incremental backup for mail content

    Nowadays, many users are using IMAP, maybe because is the default setting in many popular email clients (Mozilla Thunderbird, and I remember Mail on Windows 8.1 didn't support POP3 at all).

    Mail content usually grow but previously stored messages doesn't change often. In Maildir format, used by Plesk, qmail and Postfix, when an user got new mails, new files with unique name are added on disk, and only some files are changed (basically, only courier-imap and dovecot caches and indexes, perhaps easy to rebuild from scratch).

    So, please, support incremental backup for mail content too

  12. bring back "modify multiple mailbox settings"

    as per:
    http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?290993-missing-feature-change-multiple-email-settings

    In 9.5.4 it was possible to select multiple mailboxes and change their settings simultaneusly.
    This is now suposed to be done through subscription plans, but there are certain settings not contemplated.

    For example, in a 300+ mailboxes domain I want to change each mailbox antispam setting to "move spam to spam folder" and this is not possible though the panel and I need to make a script to do it through shell.

    I would like this feature to come back, like it was in 9.5.4

  13. Configurable Admin Permissions

    Since we are now able to create more than 1 Administrator within Plesk - it would be a good addition if one would be able to give those Admins particular Rights within Plesk.
    I don't want my "Everyday-Admin" to be able to stop Services within Plesk or even Shut-Down the whole Server within the Panel ...

    I want them to do their work with Customers/Domains/Hostings ... but access to the "real Admin Areas" should be restricted ...

  17. indicate password strengh or acceptance during "reset password" process

    There are many customers complaining, they have to try several passwords during the password-reset process, before one is accepted. There is no visual indicator if the typed password fits the safety regulations.

    "Inside" plesk, the password strengh is indicated when they change theirs plesk- , FTP- or e-mail password. Why not during the reset-process?

    The highlight would be an indicator, that permanently shows if the typed password is strong enough or has to be stronger (with a tooltip/hint, what specifications has to be met or which kind of character is missing).

  18. Add support for MicroSoft Web Deploy 4.0

    Web Deployv.4.0 was installed on the server before Plesk.
    Now WebDeploy is displayed as installed in Plesk installer.
    However, it is not detected by Plesk in Tools & Settings > Server Components(Refresh does not help either).

    Please add support for WebDeploy 4.0
