    If it's going on the same domain:

    1) Download your database from php Myadmin .

    2) Download your entire public_html directory via ftp.

    3) Reverse the process to your new host.

    Their will be some tutorials for you via: google!

    hello parable,
    thanks for your help, would this switching affect backlinks of my blog?

    It would not, so long as you keep the same URL structure with your new host.

    In other words, if your site is http://www.myblog.com and when you move it to your host, it ends up being http://www.myblog.com/blog/ then your backlinks would all be broken.

    If you are just changing hosting, your backlinks/ SEO benefits will not be lost. For moving, read: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress
