Moving my blog from a different host (2 posts)

    I set up my site by signing up for a Justhost account and got my domain through them. Long story short but I am really not happy with the service I have received.

    I am trying to set up a music blog like the 1000's that are already out there and after 4 days of getting nowhere I've found out that I can't use the Justhost webspace to host my audio files.

    I would like to know how easy it would be to move my current site from Justhost to WordPress without having to start again.

    I was also told when I signed up with Justhost that I would have a "Free domain for life", does this mean I don't have to worry about moving it to another host? And how do I continue to use it with my new WordPress account?

    All I want to do is be able to streaming, downloadable audio files on my site that are most likely hosted elsewhere. Anything from single tracks (3-10MB) to full DJ mixes (around 70MB). I have always been impressed with the Mediafire file host. Would a free WordPress blog and a Mediafire account be enough to achieve what I want?

    Thanks for your time, your help is appreciated,

    more than likely not a problem if you are hosting the music files elsewhere

    just set up a free blog at wordpress.com

    go to justhost blog
    admin - tools - export
    export your blog

    got to new blog
    admin - tools - import
    import the justhost blog to new blog

    not sure about domain name - you can set up your wordpress.com acct. to use your domain name but as for if justhost let's you have it I suppose you need to find out
