    Some hosting service will do it for you. For wordpress blogs there are plugins such as The Duplicator to make a copy and then move your site to the new host.

    Are you using cpanel hosting at the moment and does the new host also use cpanel? If so ask their support people to do a server to server move. You will have to supply the current IP address of your site, username and password but it will be done in minutes depending on the size of your blog of course!

    Install duplicator plugin and then duplicate you whole site including database,plugins,images,posts,pages etc to another host in minutes. Easy to do, it zips everything up for you and all you do is upload the zip file to your server and a installer.php file and run it - done.
    I transfer all my wordpress sites this way as it's quick and easy

    yes duplicator rocks!
    got TIME OUT issues because your site is too big? Exclude the Uploads folder and transfer that manually.
    Other than that, should work great

    Yes i had that in the past, they do have a paid version which handles big sites so if the site is big maybe worth investing

    Download the DB from the current server and then move it to the new server and change the db name.

    Yes , you can use a good wordpress plugin for this if you are working with wordpress.
