  1. Have an option to deliver email addressed to VERP-style email addresses.

    Postfix already has the option, but it doesn't seem to be supported on Plesk.

    I want to use VERP so I can automatically process bounce messages with a script. I send out bulk email with a return-path like bounces+uid-john=example.com@ourdomain.com and I want the bounces to be delivered to bounces@ourdomain.com

    Postfix has the configuration parameter recipient_delimiter. If I set that in /etc/postfix/main.cf, the server accepts the email and passes it to plesk_virtual. But then it is silently discarded instead of being delivered to the bounces mailbox.

    The only way I see with the current set up to deliver these messages…

    • Support full DNS for CloudFlare ServerShield

      Currently CloudFlare ServerShield is implemented using partial (CNAME) setup. What is the point in a partial setup when you can benefit from full DNS? You get anycast DNS with CloudFlare on full DNS.

      • Add ip manually to fail2ban

        It is not possible to add an ip manually to fail2ban trough Plesk interface. Sometimes you detect an offending ip address which you want to ban from your system, before it is detected by recidive rule.

        • Possibility to activate DKIM and DomainKey without active local DNS

          Please make possible generating and activating DKIM/DomainKey without having active local DNS server. Consider following situation:

          You have a website that use as sender your domain when sending email and you are want to follow best practices in order to reach inbox, but this domain uses another server for DNS (cloudflare for example, godday, etc.). In this case you need to have DKIM/DomainKey signed mails without the need to activate local DNS server. Also mail management could be set off for that domain, but mails still should be able to be signed.

          I believe that this scenrario is real and…

            • 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.

                • 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.

                  • add BROTLI support to nginx and apache

                    as brotli seams to be a up to 20% better comression library than gzip and used by many CDN Providers it should be possible to switch on in plesk.

                    • Create daily md5-hashes of the web-content of a domain, to quickly identify tampering or hacking.

                      Let Plesk on every night optionally create/compare md5-hashes from all files in the domains storage-space (web,httpdoc,ftp) and update this in a simple list (database), sortable by date of last change, size, number of changes. Indicating "changed files in the last xx days" to have a time-window to drill down.

                      In addition, accumulate all vhosts together into a seperate "Admin-View", where ALL domains are put together alphabetically.

                      Add an additional button "snapshot", so one could create a list of all webfiles on request. For example, when an incident has been cleaned, then click "snapshot" and then wait some time to see…

                      • Renew a subscription

                        Ability to renew a subscription based on the subscription plan's configured subscription expiry date.

                        So if a subscription expires in ten days from now and it's subscription plan is set to expire in one year, I would like to be able to click a Renew button to extend the subscription with one more expiry unit (1 year in this case, 2 years if the subscription plan would have been set to expire every two years).

                        Also show renewal date in the list and sort by renewal date

                          • add backup password protection to Backup Manager Backups (NO..it doesn't have it at the mo)

                            This may also be a security issue.
                            Currently there are no special protection of user content in the backup. Plesk protects only its sensitive data, web content archived without any encryption.

                            If some gains ADMIN access to a wordpress/drupal/other web applications install parts of the Plesk container file system, cron jobs, etc will be compromised and would undoubtably increase exponentially the chances of the system to be exploited with virus, rootkits, malware “indirectly” affecting Plesk. (as an analogy no point to build a metal wall if the door is still glass)

                            • 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.

                              • Fail2ban setting findtime per Jail

                                In Fail2ban (great idea to include it in plesk!) settings you can set "Time interval for detection of subsequent attacks" (findtime) in general. But it would be interesting this setting per Jail.
                                Why?
                                you could have 2 jail with same filter but different findtime. Example:
                                Jail 1) 5 failures in 600 seconds: 1800 seconds ban
                                Jail 2) 30 failures in 86400 seconds: 604800 seconds ban

                                There are bots that detect if you have some protection fail2ban or similar and it will adapt, login attempt every 300 seconds for example. Jail 1 no detect this attack, but Jail 2 yes.

                                    • 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.

                                      • add an SPF record to the DNS template

                                        SPF information is so far entered through the TXT record. Adding the emerging new SPF record would make sense.
