Am told I need to move my website to a newer server. What in the world?

I know just enough about Wordpress to manage my own website at a basic level.  I know absolutely nothing about hosting or servers or any of that.  I don't even know if I've posted this on the right board!  I've had a few problems lately and have been told by Jetpack and GoDaddy customer support that I need to move my website to a newer server  I don't even know what that means, let alone how to do it.  I would need a very dumbed down step-by-step tutorial to be able to try it.  My blog has been around for more than five years, so I really don't want to mess it up.  Anybody got a tutorial or any other help for me?

WordPress has a step-by-step here.

 

There are also plugins that help with mirgration as well:

 

Download All-in-One WP Migration

 

WP Staging – DB & File Duplicator & Migration

 

HTH! 😉
