  1. Add Aliases for Subdomains

    You are currently not able to Alias a subdomain through plesk. Instead you must create the subdomain as a primary if you wish to alias it. In many situations it would make sense from an organizational standpoint to keep the subdomain under a main domain while still adding aliases to it. I do not believe this is a technical restriction of the webservers so it would be helpful if plesk allowed you to add aliases to subdomains.

  3. Add DNS TTL per entry

    Add a DNS TTL per entry option instead of just SOA TTL.

    This will make it more inline with products like cPanel etc and is very useful when using dynamic dns to have low TTL but other entries like mx can have a high TTL

  4. Add possibility to change default webmail.<domain> subdomain to custom

    At the moment by default any webmail interface is under domain webmail.<domain>

    Some people would like to use custom one. For me personally it's important to have this as server-wide setting (I have basic workaround for this - custom domainWebmail.php), but it isn't perfect (many links to webmail service missing, e.t.c.).

    And that's why we have plesk - user friendly interface.

  6. PHP GD webp support

    The version of GD provided with Plesk PHP packages does not have support for webp enabled by default. Almost all browsers now support this format.

  7. MYSQL Performance Tuning and Monitoring

    t would be a good idea to have an SQL section where users can run optimization scripts like MYSQLTUNER etc and enter suggestioned changes in a GUI that directly change the mysql.conf directly and correctly.

    An ability to monitor performance and tweak would be ideal, making the task of SQL performance monitoring and tweaking far easier.

    Also optimize commands and other tasks could be run for this panel.

    as well as optimize and the ability to add it to cron for weekly or monthly.

  8. Default SPAM / VIRUS protection for newly created mailboxes

    I suggest you add a feature in Settings with which we can enable SPAM / VIRUS protection for newly created mailboxes by default.

  9. Smarthost/External SMTP

    It would be nice to have an external SMTP (smarthost) ability for a per-domain basis (most mail services have this)

    We use this for external scanning, data leak prevention and more.

    Can this be be done?

  10. that you adapt the main domain name of an IP as the myhostname for POSTFIX or QMAIL.

    Most of RBLS are checking the SMTP Banner and currently only the first domain name is being used. To reduce scamming or to prevent being blacklisted you should apply myhostname with the according domain name.

  11. Search mail logs from Gui

    We have many support requests from our customers (non technical) to search logs and find if a message was sucessfull delivered and consume much from our support.

    If the customer could search logs from a specific sender ou destination, filtering by date, will be great for us.

  12. Enable chrooted sftp for more than one user per account

    If I use FTP, I can make as many users as I want. For various reasons, using FTP is not optimal at my workplace. I'd like to be able to let each ftp user I create log in with chrooted sftp.

    I'm able to modify /etc/passwd and /var/www/vhosts/example.org/etc/passwd to make it work, but doing that manually kind of defeats the point of using a tool like Plesk...

    Specifically, I give the ftp user the same home directory, and shell as the initial sftp user has in each passwd file.

    This is a valid request, so we’ll look into it. There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features.

    The original request contains a manual solution, so, we consider to automate it. Please, add a comment if your case will not be solved with that solution.

    Thanks in advance!

  13. Add nginx-only hostings

    Current scope for Plesk Onyx is to enable an ability to serve all http(s) requests by Nginx only.

    Note: apache will still be installed. Switching of apache to optional component is subject for the next release.

    Update:

    The ability to turn off Apache and have content served by nginx only on a per-website basis is now available in the latest Plesk Onyx 17.0.14 preview. We encourage you to check the implementation and let us know what you think. Please visit the following forum thread to learn how to access the preview: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-preview-and-feedback.337172

    How to try this feature:

    Go to any website, click Apache & nginx Settings and deselect the “Proxy mode” checkbox under nginx settings. The feature is also available in Service Plans.

    We would appreciate hearing your feedback on implementation of this functionality. Thanks in advance!

    Hi.

    The first version of SNI support for Mail is available in Plesk Obsidian: https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/obsidian/change-log/#18-rc10

    You need MailEnable 10.20+ (for Windows) or Postfix 3.4+ and Dovecot (for Linux) to test it.

    There are cases when it doesn’t work (e.g., if you connect to mail.domain.com it will not work, please use domain.com in connection settings of your mail client) that’s why we don’t mark it as “available”. We plan to fix these issues soon.

  15. Enable Nginx GeoIP module

    Some of security configuration requires GeoIP detection. It also useful for tracing and should be easy as adding '--with-http-geoip-module' option to configure command for the package.

  16. Add Disclaimer to mail footer

    Many mail servers have this feature. Please include in plesk possibility to add disclaimer to mail footer on specified domain.

  17. Support for HTTP/2 on APACHE (only) without using nginx as proxy! And Server Push!

    As we have to use apache, i don't like to go for an aditional nginx proxy just to simulate HTTP/2 ;-)

    I think apache is capable to handel HTTP/2 :-D

  19. Add Mailman support to Let's Encrypt

    Please add Mailman support to Let's Encrypt.

    Ideally, one could issue either a certificate directly for lists.domain.com or a wildcard certificate for *.domain.com.

    Furthermore, a secure connection should be enforceable.

    Thanks!

  20. Rename database
