    I am looking to move to a new web host, how can I move my WordPress website to the new hosting, without losing anything? Thanks for anyone that can help, or link to an actual useful video. Thanks

    mostly the web hosting providers do the site migration without any extra charges and data loss

    Just backup the database and wordpress directory in your Cpanel. Import everything to the new host, change your nameservers, done and dusted.

    There should even be a "Backup" option somewhere, if you like wizards.

    Hostwinds will do it all for you free of charge and they are a good host too.
