    I have heard many good things about HostGator and I am ready to go from Yahoo webhosting (which sucks, by the way) over to HostGator..

    How can I get this started? Can I use FileZilla to back up my website and would it be a matter of simply uploading again? I don't want to lose and have to reconfigure all my plugins and reformat all my pages and posts..

    export your current wordpress database.
    upload files to hostgator, create database, and import the database.
    you are done, simple as that :)

    I switched to HostGator about 3 months ago after suffering really crappy service from my previous host. It's a first class operation. I've had no downtime since switching, and their response times are very prompt.
