Go through your current site and decide what you want to keep, archive or delete. This includes HTML pages, PDFs, Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations. You will be able to upload most common file-types (.doc, .xls, .ppt, .pdf). .
Inventory also any applications that live off of the ACS Membership server. For instance, do you use a Google calendar? Google gadgets or other widgets? These need to be inventoried as well.
TIP: A software called PowerMappercreates a complete sitemap of your site and that can help you see where everything “lives” on your site. (www.powermapper.com). [Note: ACS will have a licensed copy of PowerMapper and can help groups create a sitemap of their current site.]
Record any custom DNS records at existing host as well as any redirected URLs you may have requested. You’ll need these to either redirect your old URL, or create a new one.
