  2. 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

    We would appreciate hearing your feedback on the implementation of this functionality. If you’ve already tried the feature, please, participate in a short survey, it will only takes 3-5 minutes: https://pt-research.typeform.com/to/fz3KnI

  4. Multiple backup rules or more options

    At this moment, you can set only 1 rule to make backups (daily, weekly, or monthly). My idea is to make multiple backup rules (ex. which daily backups should be deleted) or simply make more backup options.

    Ex:
    I want to make daily backup and delete every older than 2 days, except one day of the week and one day of the month.

    ex interface:
    Make [daily/weekly/monthly] backup and keep only:
    [n] daily backups (enabled only for daily backups)
    [n] weekly backups (enabled for daily and weekly backups)
    [n] monthly backups (enabled for daily, weekly and monthly backups)

    So, if…

    I'm glad to inform you that the request is completed and available since Plesk Obsidian 18.0.55

    We have finished our big pack of Backup improvements for the scheduler to establish a more flexible backup policy:

    • Multiple backup schedules with different destination for each schedule at once to get a flexible and robust backup policy. User can keep, for example,   hourly backups locally and weekly backups to cloud or FTP. Establishing multiple backup schedules at once is a part of a license to the Backup to Cloud Pro extension. The extension is included already to Plesk Hosting Pack.
  5. Customer email notification when mailbox quota exceeded

    It would be a very useful feature to have an email automatically injected to a customers mailbox when their quota is close to the limit and another when the mailbox quota has been exceeded with advice (customisable) on how to resolve the problem.

    Sometimes clients are unaware/forget their quota and if accessing via outlook/smartphone etc they are not aware of the limit being reached. This can result in several days without emails or emails being rejected with a "mailbox full" autoresponder. Ironically this means anyone sending emails to the client are aware the mailbox is full but the client is…

    This functionality was added in Plesk 18.0.52 ( https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/obsidian/change-log/#plesk-18052 ). We suggest you to update to Plesk 18.0.52 and check it out.

    The feature is based on ipsets and works out of the box.

    By default, the feature uses the free version of the DB-IP geolocation database, but also supports MaxMind DB's.

  7. make SSL Certificates for mail services manageable from Plesk

    To change SSL certs for mail services one has to manually change at least three files: (depending on system e.g.)
    /etc/postfix/postfix_default.pem
    /usr/share/imapd.pem
    /usr/share/pop3d.pem

    This is very confusion and not very usable, esp. as there are already a number of SSL ways to set certificates in Plesk (per domain, per ID, for the panel, as std. for all domains, ...)

    This could be streamlined and a simple tickbox, like 'Set this certificate for mail services' would make the life of administrators much easier!

  9. Change admin username

    It should be possible for the admin user to change his user login name. The name "admin" is not very secure, because it's easiert to hack via brute force. The hackers know, the name is "admin". If the user would be able to change his login name, it would increase the security of Plesk Panel.

  10. Incremental backup

    Many files are rarely changing on a usual site. So backing up only changed files might make backup process much faster.

  11. Limit resources per user

    As the title says, plesk panel should be able to limit these resources, for example, per system user.

    Resources:
    RAM, CPU (%/cores), Maximum Processes per user

    Add Sogo as a webmail alternative in Plesk.

    Sogo share your calendars, address books and mails in your community with a completely free and open source solution

    Sogo is a great webmail solution and provides native Microsoft ActiveSync support. Mobile devices such as Apple iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry 10 can fully synchronize emails, contacts, events and tasks with SOGo.

  14. 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";

    Hi!

    The functionality is now available in the SSL It! Plesk Extension: https://ext.plesk.com/packages/3c4117f6-c05c-4d3b-9173-60f10096a9c4-sslit

    How to find it:
    1. install SSL It! Extension (it’s available for Plesk 17.8+)
    2. go to > SSL/TLS Certificates
    3. if there is no SSL Certificate installed on the domain – issue one (using, for example, free Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificate)
    4. if an SSL Certificate is installed on the domain, there is a switcher HSTS, turn it on
    5. Voila!

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

    Please add new feature to limit the number of outgoing emails Yes this is a very bad that we cannot limit outgoing emails!

    One of our hosting customers was a spammer. Because of their spamming our IP was blacklisted.

    We removed the blacklist and suspended the spammer, but during that time our other customers were very upset, their emails weren't being received...and new customers of ours couldn't receive download letters sent from us, it was a terrible problem! Then they would complain but support tickets weren't received, either!

  20. MYSQL Performance Tuning and Monitoring

    t would be a good idea to have an SQL section where users can run optimization scripts like MYSQLTUNER etc and enter suggestioned changes in a GUI that directly change the mysql.conf directly and correctly.

    An ability to monitor performance and tweak would be ideal, making the task of SQL performance monitoring and tweaking far easier.

    Also optimize commands and other tasks could be run for this panel.

    as well as optimize and the ability to add it to cron for weekly or monthly.
