  1. 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.

  2. Make the limits for CPU, Memory and Disk (cgroups) customizable per reseller in order lock resources available for reseller's plans

    At the moment you cannot lock system resources available to the reseller. It could be useful to limit the cgroups resources available to the resellers when creating the reseller plan, in order to not allow the creation of unlimited service plans to be assigned to the reseller customers. It could be useful to limit any resource uverusing.

  3. use Plesk as Backup MX server

    Please allow usage of Plesk Onyx (postfix) as Backup MX server

    at the moment it is not possible to configure Plesk Onyx as Backup MX server, so even I have multiple Plesk servers available, when main production server is down, all e-mails in that time-frame is lost :((

    if we could setup Plesk as Backup MX server, that would give us some redundancy so e-mail should be fine on backup mx server, until primary mx comes back online

  5. Allow customers/resellers to manage additional Apache and nginx directives

    Currently, management of additional Apache/nginx directives is available for Plesk Administrators only.

    With Apache, it is possible for users to add custom directives via .htaccess file.

    However, when running a Plesk server with nginx only hosting and a large number of customers, it takes a lot if time to configure nginx directives manually for each.

    It is clear that additional Apache/nginx directives fields are hidden from Plesk users for security reasons, but it would be great to have an ability to enable this feature at your own risk.

  7. 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

  8. 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…

  9. Limiting inodes for client, reseller, subscription

    Hello,
    is good idea to limit users files count. This limit will restrict users from generating
    thousands of files, makes faster backups creations. Directadmin and cpanel has this feature and it is very usefull for hosting.

  12. jpegoptim, optipng, gifsicle or similar

    id like to see these tools implemented into plesk. To run server wide or domain wide, and via cron if required.

    Alot of large organisations are using these tools. (facebook etc etc)

    I like to see image optimization part of plesk admin panel. It will help servers run faster and optimize web delivery.

  15. Add/remove Fail2ban for additional Administrator accounts

    I open this again because the original from "anonymous" is closed.

    When creating an additional admin user it is not possible to add or remove Fail2ban to the option of that user.

    Is it possible to add such functionality in Plesk from the restricted mode?

    So, as @IgorG need more info, here is it:
    The guy are refering that when you create a new plesk admin account, and you check the mark to be "Enabled Restricted Mode" this account cannot see nothing about Fail2Ban. So, when you go to yourserver:8443/admin/server/admin-plan you cannot choose to enable "Fail2Ban" management. So, these restricted…

  16. Wordpress CPU and RAM usage stats and slow plugin warnings

    I would like to see the CPU and RAM usage by Wordpress applications.

    I would also like to see a warning about slow php scripts, which would help to catch Wordpress plugins that use too many resources.

  18. 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.

    Please write exact scenarios of why do you want to hide this functionality in Plesk.

    Do you want to disable File Manager on a server or you would like to disable File Manager for particular customers only? And why?

    Your descriptions will help us to properly estimate if this idea is worth to be implemented or not.

  20. Firewall - Import/Export IP List and Bulk Add

    Would it be possible to add an import/export feature to the Firewall settings or at least provide a bulk add capability.

    Adding IPs one at a time is very time consuming to say the least.

    A simple solution would be to permit a comma separated list to go into the text field.

    Good news! Despite the low number of votes that this request got, from some additional reports Plesk understands that this is a critical function for some users. We do not have an ETA yet, but it will be worked on in the scope of upcoming feature enhancements.
