Option to set global hostmaster address (SOA)
Right now, every domain gets the hostmaster mailaddress from the correspondent client data in Plesk. It is stored in dns_zone table and not changeable globally.
Especially for resellers it would be great to override this setting with a global hostmaster address (e.g. email@example.com) set through Plesk admin interface - a manual change to be done each time a new domain is registered is not really comfortable.
1) “Option to set global hostmaster address (SOA)”
This feature is already available since versions:
- Plesk Onyx 17.5.3 MU#58.
- Plesk Onyx 17.8.11 MU#22
- Plesk Onyx 17.9 Preview 5
Open “Tools & Settings / DNS Template / SOA Records Template /” and check “Email (RNAME)” settings.
Let us know if you have any feedback
2) If the client mail is set as hostmaster, addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org are not escaped…
Unfortunately, we cannot confirm this issue. If you have additional information about this issue or want to get advice from the community, please go to our forum at talk.plesk.com. Thank you.
@DNS Template for Reseller... we really need it!

I have tested an email with dot in Plesk 12.5, 17.x and I can't confirm the issue.
# grep SOA /var/named/chroot/var/example.org
@ IN SOA ns2.example.org. alexander\.yamshanov.example.org. (
The dot was escaped in accordance with RFC1035: If the
<local-part> contains dots or other special characters, its
representation in a master file will require the use of backslash
quoting to ensure that the domain name is properly encoded. For
example, the mailbox Action.domains@ISI.EDU would be represented as

And again, @Plesk Staff, STANDARD !!!! Include it yesterday!
Hello. Could be added possibility to manage SOA email records for all exciting and for all new accounts via Plesk admin panel? And 1 more thing. Could you add functionality to block notifications, that should be sent to this email?
This should get the urgency it really deserves.
Currently all users' email addresses are exposed via the SOA record. Some users have paid for a domain ID protection (WhoisGuard) in order to hide that information. Spammers just have to make a query for the SOA record and they harvest their email address just like that..
Just a quick linux comman line example:
# host -t soa example.com
example.com has SOA record sns.dns.icann.org. noc.dns.icann.org. 2015082680 7200 3600 1209600 3600
Possibility use admin mail as responsible mail address in SOA resource records in DNS Service for all subscriptions on Web-Shared Hosting.
P.S. for confidentiality reason.
