  1. Server Health: Show Apache CPU Usage per domain

    It is difficult to identify the offending website, and this would help tracking it down

    The first version of the Repair Kit extension is available! :)

    https://ext.plesk.com/packages/f25c01a8-57cf-4b33-9dab-47cdc01e1b05-repair-kit

    If you’ve already tried the extension, please, participate in the survey, it will only takes 3-5 minutes: https://goo.gl/forms/3SFbYvthRSGrvKc03

    Also, welcome to our forum: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/repair-kit-extension.349959/ Your feedback will be appreciated.

  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

  3. 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…

  4. 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!

  5. Incremental backup

    http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=208520

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

  6. ActiveSync support on Roundcube and Horde (Push)

    ActiveSync is a necessary tool for most businesses today as it allows them to have everything in one place and stream it automatically to every device they use. Users with mobile phones and tablets can easily sync their contacts, calendars, notes and emails via activesync and users with outlook and other mail clients can sync contacts, mail and perhaps notes.

  7. 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

    -->including a automatic banning solution

    (cpanel has this functionality)

  8. 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!

  14. Keep server up2date with "apt-get" or "yum" (update PHP, Apache, MySQL, etc)

    Hi everybody,

    Following my post on the plesk forum, I propose to the team having a features which allow the update a server (like an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade) but directly from plesk to update the server.

    Indeeed, I find really strange that there is not way to maintain a server up-to-date and we are oblige to directly to the server to launch this operation.

    Regards,

  16. Email import tool

    It would be a great idea to be able to import mail for individual email accounts via POP3 from other servers.

    This would be great for customers migrating to you so that they can keep all their email.

    Would just need fields such as:
    -Hostname
    -Username
    -Password
    -Port
    -Encryption

    Implemented as the functionality of Site Import 1.2.0 https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/onyx/change-log/#17811-mu20180516

    Added the ability to import the content of mailboxes hosted on third-party servers with the IMAP access into mailboxes hosted on a Plesk server. Now users can import emails from Gmail or Yahoo! Mail mailboxes and from mailboxes managed by control panels (for example, Plesk or cPanel). All folders (including custom folders) and emails contained in them are imported. The “read” or “unread” status of imported emails is preserved.

  17. Let's encrypt: add domain aliases

    The let's encrypt extension is great, except... it doesn't work for me: It doesn't add domain aliases. I have domains like "typing-error.de", "typing-eror.de", "typing-errror.de", "typing-error.com" etc. (you get the idea). As-is, only the primary domain is added to the certificate.

    Nextcloud Beta is available as an extension now
    https://ext.plesk.com/packages/02092dca-71cd-4045-a017-667a57248a03-nextcloud

    Just go to the Extension Catalog in Plesk to install.

    Nextcloud is a solution similar to Owncloud, coming from the same vendor, but with extra functionality and also more common and trendy

    Feedback and further requests for adjustments can be provided to beta-extensions/at/plesk.com and/or to an online survey at https://forms.gle/9ZGifFBZo8a4t7vU8
    We are eager to hear from you!

    And thanks for your patience!

  20. Add subdomains in one Let's Encrypt certificate

    Add subdomains to one Let's Encrypt certificate.

    Why?

    Because Let's Encrypt has currently limit 5 certificates / 7 days on one domain.

    Example: in one Let's Encrypt cerftificate will be this DNS names: example.com; www.example.com; sub1.example.com; sub2.example.com

    I think it will be helpful if you can simply add your own domains and subdomains in Let's Encrypt Certificate.

    Thanks!
