Thank you for your input. We will consider the possibility of implementing this feature in upcoming releases.
It might be considered in future, but for now we have 20+ requests here so we will focus on them for now.
However Sogo Webmail can be integrated via Plesk SDK https://ext.plesk.com/help and we will be happy to publish this integration in our Extension Catalog
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.
Hello, we might do this function later, but it is not planned yet due large number of higher rated requests in our voting system. IF there is an urgent need, the best would be to apply workaround from @Tozz below or another alternative
While mod_pagespeed integration is yet coming,
Plesk has recently got PageSpeed Insights extension (https://ext.plesk.com/packages/3d2639e6-64a9-43fe-a990-c873b6b3ec66-pagespeed-insights). Feel free to install and let us know what you think
the confusion was caused by overwriting original status rather than appending to it.
Notice, that the request remained opened and delivery of PageSpeed Insights didn't close it
However, while many of you were looking for mod_pagespeed specifically, potentially some of voters might have been interested in the PageSpeed Insights extension as well. That's why we considered appropriate to mention it here
Thank you for your input. We will consider the possibility of implementing this feature in upcoming releases.
Hi, the actual status is always in the top right corner.
This is an interesting to us, though votes are real low yet
Could you provide more info about you request? Do you want have analog of DNS clustering for Plesk servers or you want build multiplatform net of hosting servers?
Hi, the original poster most likely meant the solution described in here
Let us know if it is not what you were looking for
Could you explain your specific preferences in comments?
Then the others will be able to support or argue your proposals.
Thanks for your opinion, yet we will appreciate your opinions to be more specific - i.e. when someone says "old", they could mention which other interfaces you would have qualified as "new".
Lets not forget that each person might have their own scale, so lets make sure we have the same frame of reference :)
It might be impossible or dangerous technically. Home folder of each account has privileges configured in a way to prevent others from accessing them. We understand extra convenience of a global account, but wouldn't like to undermine security.
But let us know if we are missing something...

@Azurel, very good point! Ideally passwords should be un-decryptable by design (one-way hash).
I shall openly and frankly say that decryption of passwords isn't our intention at all and we will keep sticking to secure side. However we respect the pain of those who supported this request despite there are only few votes. So we are ready to listen for typical scenarios where password is needed and then consider alternative solutions for them.
Don't take it wrong - we are not going to even consider decryption tool, but we are ready to consider alternative solutions for scenarios where password is needed now.
- we are introducing one-time login "tickets" for the case when system administrator ("root") needed Plesk CP password - it will replace exposure of real CP password https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/17.0/cli-linux/plesk-utility.75661/
- for the case below (external system exposing password for its users), our recommendation is to process password in such system and then push changes into Plesk via Plesk XML API. Such external system would bear complete responsibility for password security then, but Plesk won't weaken its security.
We are ready to listen further cases and provide guidelines for them at our best capacity.
But there will be no built-in decryption facility
XML API for update is
For event handlers catching password may be possible, please see here
Thanks for explaining your scenario in details.
Specifically for email, would it work if you pass the password in XML API like in the example here?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
Plesk will automatically convert the password passed into crypted or hashed form depending on current implementation.
In case of tight collaboration in a team, we think the right choice would be to employ code repository like GIT (which will be supported in the upcoming Plesk Onyx)
Please tell us if you meant something different
Thank you @Reboot,
I think you can start with Plesk config monitoring tool which is very similar to what you were desc:
Lets us know if that is the thing you meant
Plesk supports PHP7 which is comparable to HHVM performance in many tests and in some tests even outperforms HHVM. We are recommending PHP7
This suggestion will remain open for a while, to hear your additional considerations in favor of HHVM
Good point! PHP7 in many tests is almost same good as HHVM and in some tests even outperforms HHVM. We will keep the suggestion open for a while to explore whether demand for HHVM remains or perhaps HHVM might get additional performance boost
Thank you for your input. We will review this php framework to see if we should support it out of the box.
No, cPanel doesn't support Phalcon, that would be quite an overstatement
cPanel only provides guidelines how to download and install custom modules including Phalcon because cPanel requires PHP built right at a server. But at the same page (https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/EA/Custom+Modules) there is a clear statement saying
"Warning: cPanel does not provide _support_ for custom modules."
Equally you can build your own PHP with Phalcon for Plesk and then use Plesk guidelines of connecting your own PHP.
There are no news yet. At some point we will explore how much it is beneficial to our web dev users, but no certain date yet.
We are planning to implement this functionality in upcoming Plesk releases, and we would really appreciate if you could take the following survey and help us understand what exactly you are expecting from this feature. Survey link: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3127824/Move-domains-between-subscriptions.
We can assure that the item is not forgotten and stays high in our backlog. But the capacity is finite and at this moment there are 4 higher ranked requests to take care about - so while I personally regret for your pain in regards of this function, we shall also respect votes of a larger group.
> Why do we have uservoice if Plesk is not listening?
With all due respect to your personal frustration, this statement is totally unfair: 123 requests have been delivered since the uservoice had been launched. That's something.
Hm, which other panels you were moving domains between subscriptions? i.e. were you able to move addon domains between accounts in WHM/cPanel?
Domain is a collection of files in user's account and under user's privileges. While we know docroot - we have no idea where are the other files (which are commonly placed outside). We often cannot tell for sure which database(s) are used in a site. There is also mail involved. Once moved, new privileges need to be assigned which may be quite impacting for a site. Once file locations changed, it breaks every script using absolute paths in its code (common enough for older sites). So this is not super-easy.
Moving domain shall not be confused with moving complete subscription (or "account" in other panels), which is whole different story, and it is easy indeed. This function is available in Plesk for a while already.
Please tell a little how you would see it working?
i.e. if sites are relocated to a different folder (core limitation of a subscription), they could fail because of changed file paths and will require some fixes in site code and configuration. Would it be accepted?
The ability to use remote SmarterMail mail server is now available in the latest Plesk Onyx 17.0.15 preview. We encourage you to check the implementation and let us know what you think. Please visit the following forum thread to learn how to access the preview: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-preview-and-feedback.337172
For more information about trying this feature refer to the following documentation topic: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/17.0/administrator-guide/mail/remote-smartermail-support.76668/
We would appreciate hearing your feedback on implementation of this functionality. Thanks in advance!
@Antony, thanks for you note about relative ease of doing that through just providing UI.
We do a range operations on file level for the purpose of performance and they won't be possible when remote. We can potentially make it possible at the cost of limited mail support when remote. i.e. no backup/restore or migration supported. Is that what you may prefer?

Hi Ionut, nice to see you here. We definitely agree that it would have been awesome if all those suggestions were already implemented. But they cannot be done all at once, so we have to pick some of them over another. For that reason we established public voting system - to help us to set priorities right. This proposal is supported by 21 person, while some others are supported by 100s. That would explain why something else might have been delivered earlier.
And still high chances to see this improvement in the next release
It is not really popular per our information. But while CF is not in our plan now, we remain open to this proposal – everyone can vote for it and we will see the demand
I cannot disclose all details, however we ourselves can see lots of sites hosted on Plesk. ColdFusion has always had small share, but last few years it had become extremely small.
Practically I doubt you can find anywhere an evidence of the opposite. All sources indicate very small usage of ColdFusion.
So at the moment we are not interested in supporting it.
We don’t have plans for mail-only Plesk now, but we remain open to new ideas. Please everyone continue to vote if you support this request.
We do consider splitting services and enabling high availability eventually. But discounted mail-only Plesk server doesn't seem fitting our plans.
However we remain open to the proposal - I will reformat the initial request so that others can support if they have similar need
Thank you for your input. We will take a look into this functionality. We’d also suggest trying out our Plesk Automation product.
There is already a reliable way to transfer or copy service plans with quite easy CLI and you can find some examples below. Delivering this request will add some convenience, surely, but it doesn't seem to be in the top - perhaps because quite many hosters already utilize CLI and thus are not disturbed too much with this problem. On the other end, they might want one of 30+ higher voted functions first and we are taking those votes quite seriously. i hope it explains why this request isn't delivered yet
If that is critical for you, wouldn't it be more productive to start using CLI now?
As a temporary workaround, we would second the proposal to use XML API (aka API RPC). It will supply you an xml export of data.
As of built in capability for .xml/.csv export, we are not working on it yet due to higher priority requests to handle. Once we start - you will see status "Started".
We would suggest to re-phrase your request in a way that would clearly indicate why the given solution was insufficient. Unless explained, we will have to merge requests as they seem identical
As for EU data protection guidelines, the legal assured us that cookies or other sorts of tracking in login-restricted area (actual Control Panel) are okay. There is no facebook widget until user has been authenticated though login form
As for the link - it is article of 2011. Given amount of Plesk in Europe and Germany specifically, it seems much unlikely that all those companies, with their lawyers and legal departments were violating the law for 4 years and never told us that.
If you bring more substantional point into the discussion, we are ready to take it into account. Otherwise, given that the previous request has never gained sufficient votes, will have to close this one too by merging it into the first one.
Thanks for the link, but your comment doesn't actually answer why disabling the widget isn't a solution.
We recommend to use following way: http://download1.parallels.com/Plesk/PP12/12.0/Doc/en-US/online/plesk-linux-advanced-administration-guide/index.htm?fileName=73873.htm
via creating of session via API
The case is reopened on your request, but could you explain what exactly you are trying to achieve?
Hi Cristoph, I have reopened the case on your request.
However the case needs more detailed explanation in order to be considered. Realistically, with unclear purpose and low votes (just 9) its chances to be included in development plan are quite subtle.
Plesk currently offers two high-quality anti-viruses and other related services like WAF. Integrating another anti-virus solution is an expensive undertaking, so we’d like you to let us know which ClamAV features are missing in anti-viruses and services already available in Plesk. This will help us properly evaluate and prioritize this request.
@Anon: very good points, much appreciated!
Thanks! Very good points
Well, your FTP users indeed can upload trojans or malicious code embedded in PDF files and images. But it cannot harm your server security, it will harm their site visitors, who will download those files. So I wonder how is your server impacted with these uploads?
From server security standpoint, server admin shall probably be much more concerned for malicious HTTP uploads (not FTP), which are performed normally via a vulnerability in a hosted site and potentially can take over that site in a hidden manner or can take over a server (only in a combination with some other vulnerability, of course). mod_security shall be good solution against that, when accompanied by quality ruleset (such as the one from AtomicCorp). I don't fully understand how ClamAV is efficient here, given that it is very far from 100% efficiency and regular complete scans would likely cause huge load on a server.
We observed a number of complains on high load from antiviruses scanning servers, but we have no positive data on their efficience. What is your experience about ClamAV file scan?
How scan of ftp uploads would improve your server security?
