    1. Transfer the files.
    2. Create a new db via cpanel, then dump your old db on it.

    Thats it.

    Looks difficult ?

    1) Upgrade your Wordpress
    2) Backup needed files and database
    3) Change your domain's name servers
    3) Install Wordpress (fresh install) in your new web hosting
    4) Upload needed files and database to the installation folder
    5) Upload your previous blog's database to your web hosting using phpMyAdmin.
    5) Connect your Wordpress to the imported database
