  1. Lock DNS records | Disable Reset to default

    We have the "dmarc"- record in our template having a placeholder for the value. At the time the Record "dmarc" was edited by adding the value, mostly every DNS record is no more in the state of the DNS template.

    Therefore it is important to have some policies:
    - The button "Reset to default" can be disabled on Admin and Reseller level.
    - The button "Master/*****" can be disabled. Usually this functionality is not needed.
    - For certain very important DNS setting, a "Lock" button might make sense. If applied, this record can not be edited anymore by…

  3. Do not automatically delete non-Plesk Route 53 records

    When making any update to a DNS zone, all records that were not created/synched with Plesk are automatically deleted. This prevents users from using advanced Route 53 functionality, such as aliases (for CDN, load balancer, etc). Because Plesk does not support AWS aliases (which is fair enough), this specific functionality MUST be configured directly in Route 53. That would only be a minor inconvenience, if Plesk didn't actively delete any record not synched with Plesk on any unrelated DNS update. This means Plesk-managed domains can't really use any advanced AWS functionality or Plesk will take the site offline.
    If Plesk…

  4. Automatic renewal of wildcard certificates when using Route 53

    When renewing a (Let's Encrypt) wildcard-certificate, we first need to go the page for SSL of the specific domain, copy the new code, go to the DNS-page, update the records, go back to the certificate page and click renew. This seems like a lot of manual steps for something that can easily be automated.

    I understand this has already been implemented for people who do not use the Route 53 plugin (or other DNS plugins), but since any change in Plesk DNS will automatically propagate to Route 53 with those plugins, I guess this can be fairly easily implemented, saving…

  10. Add custom dns recursion settings via Plesk GUI or CLI and avoid overwriting by Plesk

    Going to Tools & Settings > DNS Template > DNS Recursion Settings, it's not possible to set a custom list of IPs or hostnames, it's only possible to choose between different options: any host, localnets, localhost.

    As a workaround to this limitation, i'ts required to customize the options section in the /etc/named.conf file, but it gets overwritten by Plesk.

    Please, add the possibility to customize the dns recursion settings via Plesk GUI and to keep the custom allow-recursive set in /etc/named.conf file.

  11. Allow users to create subdomains for whitelisted superzones

    Currently you can only disable creating of subdomains for all superzones.

    An exclude list to allow some superzones would be nice.

  12. Add <ip1>, <ip2>, <ip3> placeholders to DNS template

    Mail server on windows sends email from specific IP
    It's required to setup SPF record in DNS template to include all server public IP addresses.
    If mail server outgoing IP and public IP is changed in the future, the DNS will update the new IP automatically for all domains.

    Example: "v=spf1 ip4:<ip> ip4:<ip2> ip4:<ip3> ~all"

  16. Please add the ability to Plesk installer check if bind9 configuration was customized

    Please add the ability to Plesk installer check if bind9 configuration was customized

    At the moment we have a feature that Plesk pre-upgrade checker shows warnings if custom templates are configured in /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/templates/custom/

    Add the same ability but to check if bind9 configuration files are customized at least /etc/default/bind9 file

    For example, if the mentioned file was customized after upgrade configuration of the bind9 can be corrupted and service could not be started which lead to the downtime of the websites

  17. Set MX priority 100 or customize to any value

    Possbility to add MX record with priority 100 but plesk allows only to select priorities from 0 to 50. For example to enable mail server to work properly at the OVH they require the configuration to priority 100

  19. Share One ***** DNS Server for Multiple Plesk Servers

    Current we are not able to do this as all Plesk Severs look for "rndc-key" key value in the ***** DNS Server.

    It would be great if we can change this "rndc-key" key value so we can configure the key on the ***** Server as rndc-key-1, rndc-key-2, ...

  20. Introduce DNS records multi-column sort.

    When required to add a few NS records, it's easy to make typos as DNS records can be sorted by a record type but not sorted by value.

    The following sorting is proposed:
    1. User Sorts by Value, then the order is: Value (ASC or DESC), Type (ASC), Host (ASC)
    2. User Sorts by Type, then the order is: Type (ASC or DESC), Host (ASC), Value (ASC)
    3. User Sorts by Host, then the order is: Host (ASC or DESC), Type (ASC), Value (ASC)
