Important NOTE
:
  • DNS and Mail domain associated with the respective website will be imported automatically provided that both Mail and DNS servers are configured at server manager Menu at Host level in HC panel.
  • If you want to import website that is running on a dedicated IP then IP quota should be available in Hosting plan, sold to the webadmin of the website otherwise you will not be able to import that specific website.
  • Also if you want to import multiple websites under the same webadmin then sufficient hosting resources must be available in hosting plan sold to the webadmin.
  • After the website is imported into HC panel, its Home Directory path is changed according to the path of Webspace inside your HC panel. For example webspace path in HC at host level is specified as C:\Webspace at : Cluster Configuration :: Manage Servers :: Edit Server :: Webserver and your website existing path before import is D:\yourdomain.com then after importing the website in HC panel the New path of website will be : "C:\WebSpace\domain\www" . Therefore, one should handle any code or application level change in one's website/webapplications after this change by themselves.
