Setting alternate directory path location of the vhost per Domain or service packet

At the moment it is not possible to change or choose the vhost path for a domain. Every Domain is installed in the standard vhost path, at example /var/www/vhosts
If someone has a Server with attached fast and slow storage or big and small storage, it should be possible for the administrator to choose between them when installing a new Domain. It could be possible to give a customer service packages with faster storage for mission critical domains or giving him a lot of space for another domain located on disk drives mounted to another location.

At the moment you can change default vhosts location in Plesk using the command-line utility transvhosts.pl
Just check available options with

plesk bin transvhosts.pl —help

Changing vhosts directory location for part of domains is impossible now.

Anyway thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases, if it will be popular.

Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

    Please allow us to add a vhost alias domain that uses a custom chosen folder (from a completely other domain) but can be attached to another subscription/customer.

    This would enable us to allow mail and dns configuration by several different customers but attach the web folders to a common/central website engine that rewrites requests based on the visiting domain.
