    That's the among the last steps of the moving process.

    First move your site (files and database).

    You can use phpmyadmin (generally found in the control panel of the host) to do a backup of the database (use the export feature).

    If both hosts use the same control panel it could help the process. You can do a full backup of your account (via the control panel) and ask the new host to restore it. I'm not sure if all control panels out there support this though.

    Alternatively, you could just ask the new host to help you move or move the site for you. Some hosts do this for free, some charge a fee, some don't do it as a matter of policy.

    One exception or rather concern to otherwise good advise from Dan are that PhyMyAdmin may have problems importing/restoring databases large than 1MB. Thus you may want to consider letting your host restore the same.

    If you're transferring to a host that is using the same control panel that you are currently using, most will make the transfer for you for free. Touch base with them and see what they can do for you - it doesn't hurt to ask!
