    Have you already registered a domain?

    You can either set the domain to forward to your current blog's URL or buy space from a web hosting provider, host your domain with them, setup wordpress, setup DNS, and import your blog onto your new webspace.

    There isn't one - you have to go to the FAQ's on the codex and find the ones on "moving your blog".

    Assuming you already have a hosting plan and have registered a domain name, you have to transfer your WP folders and files to your new server. You will need to create a new database on that server, then follow the FAQ's on how to transfer your existing database to your new one so your new URL will work. Nobody can do it for you and it is not a "click a link" operation.
