a little background:
I have my home page on an ISP which offers "no service" 56k dialup.

I've had do abandon dialup and convert to DSL. My account expires 9/1.
I'm thinking of, or planning to move my web page to another ISP.

Problem:
I've spent several years building some small amount of traffic, and have
links spread all over Usnet almost 4 years deep.

When I move my page to another site, all these links will begin to get
"Page not found..."

Question:
The site I'm thinking of departing suggests moving a month before
expiration and using that month for auto transfer and notice to search
engines. They will not maintain a more user friendly err msg after
expiration....so...

What is the best way of moving a site and at least mitigating the impact
on traffic... and all those years of links ?

Any feedback deeply appreciated.
