    1) Plesk has built-in protection against brute-force on login – it will lock the login form. So no one can try multiple attempts

    This is a valid request, so we’ll look into it. There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features.
