  1. Rename database

    Doing this by hand is very time consuming. An option for rename database would be great feature.

    • Set start date on autoreply

      It would be useful to be able to configure auto replies so that they start automatically on a specific date.

      If I don't want to forget to set it before leaving.. or i'm sure there's many reasons!

      • Possibility to force SSL on Webmail

        Some users don't know why they should enter https:// if they have to access webmail, they use http://
        http is insecure. Easpecially in combination with unencrypted wireless connections.
        Actually you have to go into the plesk code to set this function somewhere. Why does plesk provide the webmail-login insecure by default?
        If you have setup an Domain Certificate, at least then plesk should offer the option to force ssl on accessing webmail.mydomain.??

            • 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!

              • Supporting TLSA Record for DANE

                DANE could be a nice security feature (exaple smtp). To using DANE TLSA Record must be set on DNS.

                • 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

                  • Django/Python Support

                    Hi, I have been trying to install a django site onto my server which has plesk and it has taken me weeks and i have paid countless dollars to fix this. I believe you should offer this support or a type of application when it is installed automatically the same as if you click install wordpress you should have the option to click install "DJANGO".

                    Many Thanks

                    • Introduce Email Signature/Disclaimer management

                      Plesk controlled signature/disclaimer management

                      1)per user
                      2)per URL
                      3)server wide

                      plesk or email in drop down and in the text field
                      ----
                      1. signature at user-level (user@sld.tld) | eg: Regards Mr. Abc
                      2. signature at domain-level (*@sld.tld) | eg: Company xyz, Address
                      3. signature at server-level | eg: "Nessage was tested against spam by xyz-freemail.com"

                      Every "snippet" should be added from level | in this example:
                      "regards

                      Company xyz

                      Message was tested against spam by xyz-freemail.com"

                      A client approached me with exactly this request

                      • add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

                        add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

                        For developers/database admins, sometimes backups are taken in different
                        formats and compression is done in different formats.

                        when compressed files other than ZIP file is uploaded for websites data
                        files, there is no way to uncompress them via PLESK, one has to go to SSH
                        and then extract to use it.

                        So compressing files/folders to multiple formats and then extraction from
                        multiple compressed formats will allow more ease of use for users where
                        they deal with no. of formats!

                          • Limit what aditional administrators can do

                            It would be useful to have options for what additional administrators can do within the panel. For example, I run hosting as part of my IT company and normally it's me that does all the work in Panel, however it is often useful to have one of my staff to do some admin tasks but I don't necessarily want that person to be able to perform all tasks such as changing critical server settings.

                            • 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

                              • Ability to customize nginx per site template e.g. Location /, Location ~, etc

                                Hello, I'm using Plesk Onyx and I've also bumped into problems with not being able to set correct NGINX Directives.

                                Regarding nginx and nginx configuration for various CMS, Web Apps etc, I see that a lot of directives need to be set and there are a lot of scattered issues around in the web.
                                For example most CMS will require a
                                location / { ... }
                                or for google's pagespeed test we need to add expire headers e.g.
                                location ~* \.*.(jpg|jpeg|png|gif|ico|css|js)$ {
                                expires 14d;
                                }

                                I think the Model to building the final vhost conf file should be revised instead…

                                    • 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?

                                      • Multiple MySQL Versions configureable over Panel

                                        I'd be happy if you could integrate multiple MySQL Versions into Plesk. Each Customer should be able to choose his MySQL. Also choosing more than only one version should be implemented.

                                        • 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.
