Allow customers to change Document root with out allowing them to manage the domain name
Service plans should be more granular, it should be possible to allow the customer to change the Document root without allowing them to manage the domain name, etc.
Basically the objective would be to have split the "Domains management" permission.
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.

Possibility to mass-change the document root for existing domains. Currently it's only possible to do for newly created domains.

@Martin Dias: I stumbled across a way to do this while checking out Plesk's CLI docs (server_pref). You can forbid customers from changing their main domain name while still allowing them to set their webroot/docroot (and www/non-www) preferences with 2 steps:
1. Via root, run: `plesk bin server_pref --update -forbid-subscription-rename true`
Note: Applies to customers only. Admins can still rename domains.
2. Via Admin GUI: Go to Service Plan > Permissions, enable "Domains Management" option
It's not as nice a solution as a UI with more granular/intuitive permissions management would be, but it's a good workaround in the meantime. Hopefully this helps!

I don´t see why a user, who is able to change the document root, should not be able to change the domain name. With great power comes great responsibility...
But it would be helpful for this suggestion to find more single options to make the permissions more granular; "etc." is not enough and blowing up the interface is not good for comfortable administration.
