    Just contact the tech staff of your new host and they will be more than happy to move the site for you. Almost all the web hosts offers free site moving service with no downtime.

    You should have an export backup of the site should anything go wrong. Not too hard to just import the site onto a new host.

    Whatever you do, do not move to 000webhosts paid service. Ask them for your data base and your back up. Pretty much shure you can download both from 000webhost without asking them. First make sure your back up is up to date before downloading.

    Next find a good paid host, before you sign up ask them if they will transfer your site for you. 99% of good hosts will do this for free. Simple as that.

    If you are having problems, look for video tutorials on Youtube, it makes it far more easy watching the process in action.
