    I'm changing host - does this mean I have to rebuild my WordPress Site or is there a way to automatically move it over?

    Thanks

    You can copy/import the files to your new hosting account. You need not rebuild the site. Also, backup everything including your database so that you can use them if anything goes wrong.

    Some hosts either help or transfer the whole site to their server when you sign up a hosting account. Check if your new host will help with site transfer. Also read: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress
