  1. Temporary FTP accounts (with expire date)

    It would be great to have ftp account with an expire date.
    A sort of temporary ftp accounts.

    This becomes really usefull when you need to share your ftp details temporary with a webdeveloper, or somebody else to maintain of check an website.

    I always make a new FTP account for this sort of events, but then forget to delete them. It would be real nice if you could set a expire date that the account automaticly blocks itself after that date is past.

  3. Allow multiple SSH-accounts in a subscription

    Currently only the main user-account (=system-user) can get access via SSH. Additional users and ftp-users only have access via FTP.

    Please allow setting up additional users using SSH as well.

  4. provide more nginx options

    Have the ability to provide more Nginx builds/packages. For example, offer a 'nginx-full'-package with more modules.

    For example, I need the Nginx headers more module. Since this need to be built-in at compile time, it isn't possible to add this later on. So that would mean replace the Plesk version of Nginx with the distro-default. (Heck, why does Plesk need it's own Nginx-build, anyway?)

    No, passing headers from Apache is not an option, especially when I'm using the Nginx - PHP-FPM setup.

  5. Two factor authentication (2FA) for Service and Additional Admin Accounts

    Currently Plesk supports Clef and Google Authenticator for Plesk admin accounts.

    However if a customer creates additional user accounts (service accounts with owner rights for example) the 2FA option is not available.

    We would appreciate this feature especially in combination with multi-server management, where one customer may have multiple admins and multiple domain subscriptions.

  6. provide a way to see why a subscription is locked

    Many times I find that some subscriptions won't sync because they are locked. I'd really like to know why they are locked. So far, I've been able to unlock & sync with no noticeable changes. But I'm left wondering what caused the lock in the first place. And I'm afraid that I'll realize later something no longer works as expected.

  9. RDNS Setup For Domains

    Please Do allow to create RDNS(reverse DNS) records to the users for their mailing severs.

    Many other Service providers have easy setup for that like: http://www.rackspace.com/knowledge_center/article/rackspace-cloud-essentials-creating-a-reverse-dns-record

    Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.

    Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

    Additional information regarding this request:

    Please be sure you are an owner of IP-address if you plan to vote this suggestion.

    An owner of a block of IP-addresses has ability configure PTR records for IP-addresses in the block. If you rent a server or create a virtual machine in a cloud, you are not an owner of IP-address.

    Usually, companies like ISP or Cloud Providers own blocks of IP-addresses. In this case, you need to use Hosting/Cloud Provider Control Panel and set up reverse zone for an IP-address (not in Plesk Panel).

  10. Add IP Ban time, expiration of ban, whois and other details to Fail2Ban entries

    fail2ban is fine but i will like to see the ban time of an IP and the expiration time

  13. Enable email subject and keywords to be blocked in spamfilter

    Allow users and admin to select subject lines and keywords as well as keywords in the email body to be added to the spamfilter blacklist.

    Currently spammers are just changing domains and sending the same email templates.

  15. Multiple DNS Templates

    Having multiple DNS Templates, ideally selectable in a Service Plan, would add a great deal of flexibility in Plesk. For example, we have one type of Subscription that involves external store-and-forward mail servers for email backup. When a customer selects this type of Service Plan we have to manually adjust the DNS records to point to the appropriate mailservers. So it would be great if we could define multiple DNS Templates, then select the appropriate template in the appropriate Service Plan.

  17. Outgoing Mail Control collect sample of offending emails

    When Outgoing Mail Control detects a user abusing the sending limits, it would be helpful for the emails that are sent beyond the limit to be sampled in some way: To: From: Subject: Headers, possibly the first line of the email, origination ip address of the offending email.

    This information can help the admin decide if it was the user just sending to many emails or if the email has been compromised and needs to be addressed.

    As a similar but different idea, emails beyond the limit could be cached for a short time to allow the administrator to decide…

  19. More control of DKIM

    We could really do with more control of DKIM, for example...

    1. Ability to control key length 1024Bit or 2048Bit (server wide)

    2. Enable subdomain signing, while you can't create email accounts for subdomains in Plesk, it's often the case that the server is named as a subdomain eg: mail.example.com Which means unsigned mail leaving the server (cron etc) even when example.com is hosted.

    3. The standard OpenDKIM package allows you to add it to nonsmtpdmilters so sendmail mail gets signed.

    4. Ability to change the selector.

    We really can't have mail leaving servers not being signed...it defeats the whole point in…

  20. Ability to set PHP version per directory inside the same webspace

    A customer would like to be able to assign different PHP versions for different directories inside one the the same webspace.
    For example,
    /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs - php5.3.3
    /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/test - php5.2.17
    /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/test2 - php5.6.12
