Thanks for all the advice Joshua. Appreciated! The first few items on 
the list are already well underway and were mentioned only as 
perspective for the redirection question.

The only place I need help is on the redirection technique. If the site 
were on an Apache server, a quick editing of a .htaccess file would do 
it.  But, it's on a shared hosting service where I have no access to IIS 
configuration parameters.  Now what?
