Hi! I am learning ASP.NET Core and AngularJS. Recently, I have purchased GoDaddy services and now have Plesk access. I have published my Visual Studio project, and now I uploaded the published file in Plesk ->Files. When I open my domain, it shows the Plesk default page I have tried multiple times, and GoDaddy support is not guiding properly.

Hello,

I’ve been using a Reseller account to host my client's websites for many years ago.

I noticed in the last few years low performance and weakness in technical support services, so I intended to move to another provider just like "HostGator," the problem is I'm using currently Plesk "Direct Admin" but the intended new reseller using "cPanel," the question is could I move my reseller without interrupting my clients? "No change from client-side will be performed ex (FTP accounts, control panel credentials, MySQL databases, users, DNS configuration, webmail boxes, and messages)."

I would love your insights on where I should go. (Experienced)

Note: I called the HostGator support, and they will make a migration manually; they also assure me that it wouldn't be any interruption, but I'm also not sure.
