New member need help

I'm trying to come up with whether or not this is possible.

I have a site which I am moving from one location to another. It is currently running VB3.8.4.

I'd like to upgrade it to VB4, but I also want to use the CMS and switch hosting providers. So, I have the new hosting provider, and I can setup the VB4.0 (I'm in the "ready to buy category basically), but I'm wondering how difficult it would be to "import" from the DB file, which would exist on the other server (I have FTP and admin rights there, I could move the file when I shut the other host down) but I'm trying to figure out the smoothest way to do this, since I'd like to be able to build the template to look "right" before I cut over and make the transition.

Does this make sense?

Do you have root access or SSH access on both servers? If yes, then it would be easy to transfer the database directly from the old server to the new server.
If you only have ftp access on the old server then you might have to download it to your PC and then upload on the new server.

When the transfer is done, it shouldn't be very difficult to upgrade from vB3 to vB4.

If you have WHM/cPanel installed you can simply do a cpanel > cpanel migration.

Generally, for me, when I am migrating from one host to another, I just export from the old and import to the new, all through phpMyAdmin. Pretty simple and straight forward.
