    In a shar ed hosting setup Plesk can force a subscription's database names and usernames t=o have a prefix.

    The problem is the prefix used for the database name is often quite long as it is based on the domain name and so there are sometimes very limited characters for the actual database name. On top of that the database username prefix that is forced is often considerably shorter and so you end up with database names and usernames that are connected to the same database but are different making it harder to keep things organised. Additionally it becomes much more difficult to describe the database using the name and makes it harder to identify what application each database relates to.

    I am proposing making it possible to use either the numeric domain, web space or subscription ID (whichever one makes most sense) as the prefix for both the database name and database username.

    This would allow for much more characters to make sensible datrabase names and ensure that the database name and username can match, all making organisation much easier.

    We have serious doubts this function can really increase server security:
    1) Plesk has built-in protection against brute-force on login – it will lock the login form. So no one can try multiple attempts
    2) Arbitrary login name adds very little guess-complexity to a proper password. If you have concerns for your login brute-forced – add another 5-7 characters into your password and feel safe.

    As changed login name is still very likely to be some sort of vocabulary word or derived from your other account name – this function would only give a false sense of better security. Your security strength is in complex password, not in a complex login name. If you have one good password, you don’t need to treat login as your “second password” – one good password is enough.

    As for concerns that default password requirement is set in “weak”, that fail2ban module is not…

    We hear you and see a clear demand for this feature.

    I want to say that implementing these features requires a lot of investment, and in 2021 Plesk team keeps focusing on the delivery of other improvements (sad, but true).

    We will back to the re-evaluation of these features at the beginning of the next year.

    Please continue to share your use cases and requirements, and it would really helpful if you point to existing solutions that we can review and check before implementation.

    Your feedback is important to us. Thank you, everyone.

    Mail in a Box isn't better, it's essentially the same but in a VM, however since it doesn't directly integrate into Plesk and lacks many of the features Plesk provides I'd say this is a better solution for most people.

    On another note any new info as to when the extension will support "premium mailboxes" side by side with "basic mailboxes" so we can upsell customers to them, I was previously told this would be included in an update but haven't heard anything recently.
