  1. WordPress Toolkit: Reseller Plans to use individual sets

    A a reseller I would like to be able to create my own specific plug-in 'sets' for my WordPress customers. Normally this should be done at this level, not by the 'top level' administrator.

    Maybe it is possible to use the same tab and visualize created sets from resellers with an icon.

  2. 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".

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  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. 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.

  8. 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

    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.

    — AY

    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).

  11. 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.

  18. 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
