JP2112 -

Thanks for the reply! My old website is an IRM, so no a problem with hosting fees. I just haven't done a URL change before and it took a little education to understand how all that 301 redirect stuff worked from the search engine perspective. I now understand that it would be okay to delete my old website content.

Thank you again for all your help!
