  • My feedback
  1. 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.

          Could you provide more information about your scenario? In particular, could you explain which settings you want to be automatically discovered and at which step of your scenario?

          UPD: We will evaluate the possibility of adding this functionality in the future releases. Note that this feature also depends on your mailing client.

          • Add subdomains in one Let's Encrypt certificate

            Add subdomains to one Let's Encrypt certificate.

            Why?

            Because Let's Encrypt has currently limit 5 certificates / 7 days on one domain.

            Example: in one Let's Encrypt cerftificate will be this DNS names: example.com; www.example.com; sub1.example.com; sub2.example.com

            I think it will be helpful if you can simply add your own domains and subdomains in Let's Encrypt Certificate.

            Thanks!

                  Update:

                  Everyone, please visit https://talk.plesk.com/threads/caching-varnish-vs-nginx.339423/ and let us know what you think about using varnish vs. nginx as caching solutions. We would appreciate any input on this matter to make sure we’re doing the right thing. Thanks in advance!

                  —AK

                  Since Plesk Onyx you will be able to install varnish cache as a Docker container and configure http(s) proxy rule for it to map to your web app.

                  Docker and proxy rules are available in Plesk Onyx Preview already, you can try it here https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-preview-and-feedback.337172/

                  It would be good to get a feedback on this ability.

                    Thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases. Note that Plesk supports multiple mail servers and if we are going to add this feature, it’s possible that it won’t be available for all supported mail servers at once

                  • Add nginx-only hostings

                    I'll like to create a hosting that only use Nginx as webserver. Also I'll like to do this with Node.js, but I think it will not be approved.

                      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!

                                It's incredibly annoying that you have to setup a subscription solely for each subdomain that you want to create email addresses for. Please fix this.

                                • SAN support in Plesk Let's Encrypt

                                  If you have a lot of subdomains, you may want to combine them into a single certificate, up to a limit of 100 Names per Certificate. Combined with the above limit, that means you can issue certificates containing up to 2,000 unique subdomains per week. A certificate with multiple names is often called a SAN certificate, or sometimes a UCC certificate.

                                  letsencrypt allow this as mentioned on https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/

                                  Plesk team should implement this feature as soon as possible

                                    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.

                                    • Maldet for linux inside Plesk

                                      Hello,

                                      is better if such as "wordpress toolkit" you implement this software in plesk https://www.rfxn.com/projects/linux-malware-detect/ + ClamAV (is more faster the maildect search).

                                      With this way, anyone can scan our website from malware. And after scan, the user need to have an notify via email or directly into plesk. This inscrease the security of website and also increase the plesk security.

                                      I use it somethimes for scan all website into our web hosting, and I found it very usefull for prevent serius problem of botnet, hacked website etc.

                                      I hope that you can consider to implement this function.

                                      Regards

                                      • 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.

                                        • Implement DNS Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) resource record

                                          Certification Authority Authorization (CAA), defined in RFC 6844, is a standard that allows domain name owners to control which CAs are allowed to issue certificates for their properties.

                                          ssllabs.com has implemented the detection for this record when checking for the SSL grade they give. To prevent getting graded down and use state of the art techniques for ssl security I would usggest to allow adding those nameserver record.

                                          RFC: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6844
