|In this newsletter:
It has been a while since you have heard from us. This is not because we have nothing to say but because we had a few exciting months with lots of new improvements to PowerPanel.
In this newsletter we will focus on new features and plugins that we have launched in the past few months, we will also share a bit of our roadmap with you.
Starting right now we have a new plugin available for OpenProvider Customers: Openprovider DNS!
With this plugin you can manage the DNS zone from your domain within PowerPanel and also allow your customers to manage their own DNS zone.
Information about how to install the plugin and set it up for your customers can be found here http://support.powerpanel.io/openprovider-dns-plugin/
Charge overuse on your customers website
Sometimes your customers will go over the limits that you have set for their traffic or disk space. With PowerPanel you have the opportunity to charge them for their overuse.
For now this is supported for Plesk and DirectAdmin.
New domain dashboard in PowerPanel
Together with the launch of PowerPanel version 4.3 we have released a new domain dashboard. With this dashboard we have tried to make the domain management a lot easier.
For each status that a domain can have (for example ‘error with requesting the domain’, ‘waiting for validation’ or active) you can find a tile on the dashboard. If you click through on one of the tiles you will see every domain that has that specific status in PowerPanel. We have created tools for every error status to help you to fix the domains.
With this dashboard it is also possible to order and transfer domains directly from PowerPanel.
Another new feature for this domain dashboard is the support for selling domain domicile.
It is now possible to set the price for the domain extensions that supports domain domicile. If extra information is required for the request or transfer of a domain, PowerPanel will ask your customer for this information before your customer can order the domain.
For more information about the domain dashboard you can read the following support item: http://support.powerpanel.io/manage-domains/
All these functionalities will be built in the new webshop of which you can have a sneak preview below
Sneak preview of the new webshop
We are working on a new integrated webshop for PowerPanel. This webshop will replace the current webshop in PowerPanel. The new webshop will be fully responsive just like the controlpanel and will be ready for the future. In the future we will expand this webshop with modules to widen the possibilities of the webshop.
You can see a small sneak preview of the webshop below.

SSL e-mail messages
With our SSL module your customers can order SSL certificates right from PowerPanel. We have made some improvements to this module based on the feedback we have received. The module is now able to send out messages to your customer after certain actions have been completed. We have created 8 messages that can be modified to your own needs:
These messages have been added to the system messages that are already available in PowerPanel. If you go to the system messages in the settings you can manage the content that you want the messages to have.
We are constantly trying to improve PowerPanel. Every month we release one or two new features in the form of new plugins or features that are added to the panel itself.
Below you can find a list of the roadmap that we have currently planned out for PowerPanel:
