  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. 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.

  4. Easy change the main website on a subscription

    Currently the main domain must be renamed to change the main domain. This is cumbersome, especially if e-mail addresses are still assigned to this domain, because they will be also renamed. It would be more convenient if another already existing domain could be set as the main domain, e. g. by clicking on a button "Set as main domain".

  5. show the last time a mailbox was accessed by the user

    This would allow you to see mailboxes that are no longer in use.

  6. Generate a deploy key per repo in the Git extension

    Currently, the Git extension only generates one deploy key per Plesk user (according to @PleskHelps on Twitter). Unfortunately, GitHub doesn't allow a deploy key to be used more than one time across ALL repos, meaning every single GitHub repo requires a unique deploy key. As a result, I can clone only one of the 40 some repos I would like to on my Plesk installation.

    I would like to suggest the option to have a unique deploy key generated for every single repo you want to clone. That would make the Git extension infinitely more useful for me and many…

  7. 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. make nginx even faster! (tcp_fastopen)

    Please compile nginx with these extra options to provide even faster time-to-first-byte responses on modern kernels:

    ./configure ... --with-cc-opt='-DTCP_FASTOPEN=23'

  10. 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.

  13. Allow using a centralized SmarterMail Server for BOTH LINUX and WINDOWS Plesk installations

    The implementation of the centralized smartermail in plesk onyx for windows is good, but it should also be possible to integrate this feature into the linux edition.

    Many hosters provide both windows and linux hosting with ONE centralised mail solution. Since the integration for winodws is already done I suppose it shouldn't be too hard to integrate it into the linux version as well since smartermail is completely API based.

  14. Multiple users for the Git extension

    It would be great if it would be possible to create multiple users which can use the Git repository. Today only one user can access the Git repository. It is the admin user which was created during the creation of the subdomain. New created Web Users for the subdomain can not access the Git repository. It is a feature which I am missing because I wanted to host a private Git repository for our small private team.

  15. Exclude domains from backup in UI

    Add an option to exclude domains / clients / resellers from a backup to the Plesk user interface.

    Currently, it is possible only via command line:

  16. Allow multiple SSH-accounts in an abonnement

    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.

  17. 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.

  19. Add Exchange Server 2013 Integration

    I would love to use exchange server 2013 while using plesk panel. Exchange server is by far the most superior email server for windows and would be a great addition to plesk panel.

    I believe that there is also an open API or an easy way to send commands which would make it a lot easier to integrate with.
