  1. add BROTLI support to nginx and apache

    as brotli seams to be a up to 20% better comression library than gzip and used by many CDN Providers it should be possible to switch on in plesk.

  2. Easy removal X-Powered-By HTTP headers

    By default the HTTP header 'x-powered-by: PleskLin' is added to HTTP responses.
    And with PHP, even the version number is included: 'x-powered-by: PHP/7.3.5'

    For security it is better to not give such information, as it may expose you are using outdated software with known vulnerabilities.
    Currently it is possible to remove these headers, but it requires some manual actions using SSH (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000385274)

    My suggestion is to create page to be able to manage such header additions for all websites and services.

  3. Redirect HTTP to HTTPS

    with Googles new higher SEO rankings based on SSL it would be great to allow automatic redirect http to https as a subcription setting

  4. HTTP/2 Push (with Nginx v1.13.9 or newer)

    Update nginx to enable HTTP/2 Push, this would be great for many Applications.

  5. zend opcache - fastcgi or apache write settings per domain

    fastcgi is supposed to work with the new opcache in newer php versions and we are forced to use it on the apache module. Fastcgi will always flush cache after 30 seconds. Nginx will work but requires a considerable amount of work.

    Apache works but causes file permissions issues with files written by apache to be owned by apache.

    Id like to see support for opcache with fastcgi, or be able to set write permissons for apache module as per domain.

    Due to the issues php opcache or apc is very tricky to use in a plesk server environment.

  6. Add PHP 7.2 alpha

    I know that we currently are in Alpha phase and PHP 7.2 should not be used fpr production but it would be nice to have an early implementation to get it activated for early stage users.
    Maybe when the first beta is out Plesk is able to add it in general?

  7. Create a wget function on file manager

    Its very common that we need to download a large gb archive into our httpdocs follder.
    With the proper download/wget function on filemanager instead of ssh and then wget, changing ownership , will help us save a lot of time.
