  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.

  3. Ability to pull Docker container private Docker repository on Docker Hub

    Currently, it is not possible to authenticate on https://hub.docker.com/ to use the container located in private repository.
    The w/a is to make the image public, download it and make it private again.

  4. Two factor authentication (2FA) for Service Accounts

    Currently Plesk supports Clef and Google Authenticator for Plesk admin accounts.

    However if a customer creates additional user accounts (service accounts with owner rights for example) the 2FA option is not available.

    We would appreciate this feature especially in combination with multi-server management, where one customer may have multiple admins and multiple domain subscriptions.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  11. The possibility to delete a Domain, without deleting the Website (Content).

    am not understand, when i want to move a Domain, the system will delete all the content. The choice to leave the content, I think is essential. This has to be a must!!!

  12. 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

  14. Backblaze B2 Backups

    Hello,

    Due to the nice facility offred by having a multiple bucket system, nothing would be easier and more secure than doing a backblaze B2 Backup. Also because of the competitive pricing.

  15. Support incremental backup for mail content

    Nowadays, many users are using IMAP, maybe because is the default setting in many popular email clients (Mozilla Thunderbird, and I remember Mail on Windows 8.1 didn't support POP3 at all).

    Mail content usually grow but previously stored messages doesn't change often. In Maildir format, used by Plesk, qmail and Postfix, when an user got new mails, new files with unique name are added on disk, and only some files are changed (basically, only courier-imap and dovecot caches and indexes, perhaps easy to rebuild from scratch).

    So, please, support incremental backup for mail content too

  16. 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.

  17. Enable IPv6 by default for a domain when an IPv6 address exists

    When adding a new subscription, the value for IPv6 address is set to "none" even if the server has assigned an IPv6 address (and other domains already use it).

    It's time for Plesk to enable IPv6 by default for new domains, the same way it does for IPv4.

  19. More control of DKIM

    We could really do with more control of DKIM, for example...

    1. Ability to control key length 1024Bit or 2048Bit (server wide)

    2. Enable subdomain signing, while you can't create email accounts for subdomains in Plesk, it's often the case that the server is named as a subdomain eg: mail.example.com Which means unsigned mail leaving the server (cron etc) even when example.com is hosted.

    3. The standard OpenDKIM package allows you to add it to nonsmtpdmilters so sendmail mail gets signed.

    4. Ability to change the selector.

    We really can't have mail leaving servers not being signed...it defeats the whole point in…

  20. 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.
