  1. HTML templates for emails sent to users from Plesk

    Allow HTML template options for outgoing emails from Plesk to users. This could include basic styling, a heading logo and footer details.

  2. "File Sharing" for customer accounts

    It should be possible to access also customer accounts files via WebDav. Currently "file sharing" tab is only available for own subscriptions.

  3. Configurable Admin Permissions

    Since we are now able to create more than 1 Administrator within Plesk - it would be a good addition if one would be able to give those Admins particular Rights within Plesk.
    I don't want my "Everyday-Admin" to be able to stop Services within Plesk or even Shut-Down the whole Server within the Panel ...

    I want them to do their work with Customers/Domains/Hostings ... but access to the "real Admin Areas" should be restricted ...

  4. Let's Encrypt SSL certificate for Plesks admin url

    It would be great if we could ad a Let's Encrypt SSL to the admin url.

    Is there an easy way to do this or will there be support in Plesk to do this?

  5. distupgrade for Debian and Ubuntu (i.e. Debian Squeeze to Debian Wheezy)

    This used to work with previous Debian versions (e.g. Etch -> Lenny, Lenny -> Squeeze) but it doesn´t seem to be possible with Squeeze -> Wheezy.

    The proposed way of "updating" is to make a backup and restore it on a new server. As we have 50+ servers this simply isn´t feasible: We cannnot get a new server and transfer multiple customer domains (some using external DNS) for each of those servers. This would cause long downtimes and problems with data being transferred that is changed on the old server (from website users).

    It has been possible before so it…

  7. Add support of google authenticator to improve security of login process

    "The Google Authenticator project includes implementations of one-time passcode generators for several mobile platforms, as well as a pluggable authentication module (PAM). One-time passcodes are generated using open standards developed by the Initiative for Open Authentication (OATH) (which is unrelated to OAuth).

    These implementations support the HMAC-Based One-time Password (HOTP) algorithm specified in RFC 4226 and the Time-based One-time Password (TOTP) algorithm specified in RFC 6238."

  8. Change MySQL with MariaDB or possibility to chose

    It seems that more and more start to change MySQL with MariaDB

    "Specifically, Google is moving to its own customized version of MariaDB 10.0. This version of MariaDB is equivalent to MySQL 5.6. Google's version of MariaDB, according to Cole, is "Not really true 'forks' [but are] branches for internal use." He added that Google had been making its own tweaks to the MySQL DBMS family for years."

  9. Let'sEncrypt Extension for Windows & .NET platform

    I've noticed that you have developed an extension for Let'sEncrypt which is working only on Linux edition of Plesk. Why don't you take a look at ACMESharp open source project on Github which has already developed a CLI for windows and .NET?

  10. Backup jobs - show/manage all scheduled jobs for Admin

    I would be nice, if the admin can see all scheduled backup jobs in one view and has the possibility to mange them easily.

  11. Provide panel.ini option to disable File Sharing

    I don't want File Sharing and I don't want to provide it or see it! There should be some way to disable it completely from the panel.

  12. "Advanced Monitoring" management via CLI or template

    To change default Thresholds for Server Health Monitor it was possible by upload custom template.

    For "Advanced Monitoring" it's possible to change Thresholds only via GUI. That is not fast if you have many servers.

    It would be have to make a feature to be able to manage "Advanced Monitoring" via command line or via templates. It

  13. Visually masking internal IP to external IP for Plesk behind NAT

    Plesk does not have a feature to visually mask in the panel the internal IP address being used with external one used in NAT. We have a scenario where the customer has specifically asked for the same during Plesk trial although not quite sure how exactly this will work (where IPs should be masked, how will be IP for masking will be selected, etc.)

    The main issue is that since Plesk Panel resides on a private IP, all the server information located in the panel, contains the private IP and not the public one. Is there a way to "map"…

  14. Modification of application installation path

    For instance, Joomla installs to a subdirectory called /joomla which makes the URL of the Joomla site: www.domain.com/joomla

    That is not an acceptable path. Our customers are then moving the Joomla files into their root /httpdocs directory for a better URL for the site. After that, the default buttons in the panel no longer work. It would be great if you could make the path editable for the customer to continue to use the installation buttons to get to their site and administrator panel from the panel.

    This feature is already implemented in the upcoming Plesk 12.1 release. We encourage you to check the implementation in one of upcoming Plesk previews and let us know what you think. Everyone, thanks for your input and votes.

    Default installation path for all webapps is ‘/’

  17. to include an anonymize option for the apache/nginx logs!

    In Europe - especially in Germany there are several laws to enforce privacy for the visitors of a website - I am talking about data protection legislation.
    Up to now there is no option in Plesk for anonymizing access- and errorlogs. All solutions given on the internet are intermediate stopgap solutions that do not work well...because Plesk will overwrite the config- or template-files which have to be modified to make the anonymization work....
    Please integrate an option for logfile anonymization!!!

    Kind regards

    Christian

  20. NodeJS 14 LTS Update

    As mentioned in this comment: Node.js versions available in Plesk
    It is really risky to stay with NodeJS 12.

    Please add NodeJS 14 (or all LTS Versions) to Plesk.
    This is really urgent.
