  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 recipientdelimiter. If I set that in /etc/postfix/main.cf, the server accepts the email and passes it to pleskvirtual. 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…

  2. 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.

  4. Add "Move to spam folder" option in Windows (currently available in Linux)

    There is an spam filtering option to "Move to spam folder XXXX" on Linux, but not on Windows (Plesk 11+).

    Unfortunately, horde doesn't work so well and every time when a message with broken header arrives, horde displays "Invalid Address" and no subject to all inbox messages. The described fix in https://kb.plesk.com/en/121175 doesn't work in this cases, forcing us to find the broken message manually (or scripting something to do the dirty job).

    This feature should exists in Windows env as in Linux.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Backup manager: Include Docker containers

    Currently docker containers are skipped by the backup manager, would be great to include them as well.

  9. 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)

    So, in other words ... if a wordpress installation…

  11. 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.

  14. Complete DMARC Support

    The DMARC support in Plesk Onyx 17.5.3 ist incomplete. If an incoming email is rejected due to a DMARC fail there is no mailer daemon generated to inform the sender of this email.

    Please add this important feature to DMARC support. Otherwise it would not be usable for most customers.

  15. 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…

  16. Allow FTPS to use certificates other than the one used to secure Plesk

    Currently only the certificate used to secure plesk is used for all FTPS connections.

    It would be useful to be able to use other certificates for FTPS connections, specifically ones already used for other domains.

    Thank you

  17. Laravel

    I think it would be amazing if you supported Laravel as it is one of the fastest growing php frameworks today.

    With it you will attract a lot ore customers.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. Include pgadmin for Postgres management in Plesk

    phpPgAdmin support was dropped starting from Plesk Onyx 17.8
    This means that Plesk does not have any management tool for Postgres databases shipped with it.

    I suggest to include pgadmin in Plesk installation since the latest ve
    rsion of this software (2018-09-06 - pgAdmin 4 v3.3 Released) has just been released, with adequate security. More info about it you can find here:
