If you didn’t know, or have forgotten about the notice from Microsoft in February, 2012, Microsoft Office Live is going to disappear on April 30, 2012.

Microsoft Office Live is being replaced by Office 365. You may find more information on the Microsoft Office Live website.

After reviewing the “self-transitioning” instructions, if you have not already done so, you need to quickly download all of your files from Microsoft Office Live before April 30, 2012 as it will take up to 5 business days to make the transition over to Office 365, if you use them for your new website.

If you wait, you will lose everything on April 30, 2012 including the website, email, etc. If you do not know how to get a copy of all your website files, it is recommended you contact a web design company to download the files for you, and possibility do the transfer.

One thing to remember: To move any website to another web host will take up to 72 hours just to transfer the domain name records. This will be required even if you use Office 365 as it is under a different hosting platform.
