I would like to install a wordpress blog.

But in the event I change hosts? Is it possible to take the blogs data to another host?

If so how?

I would advise you to open a trouble ticket from your account so we will be able to assist you properly. You will be able to do this via Open New Ticket menu of your account control panel Help Center section.

Yes. Simply export a copy of your database to your local pc. When/if you change, just upload that copy to the new server.

Easy and simple. Also, I think that Wordpress has an option to do just that. I could be wrong, but I seem to remember an option to import an existing blog through the admin panel. Simply point it at the URL, and provide a username and password, and viola!
