    MySQL databases

    I currently do my own hosting off a DSL line, but am looking to go with professional hosting so I can handle having more than 1 user on the website at a time.

    I use post nuke, and it uses a mysql db. Obviously if switch over, I dont want to lose all my users or content, so my question is, are database transfers easy to do with aletia? Can I just ssh in, and run a couple commands and have my DB restored on your servers?

    Yes. Yes.
    The only thing I worry about, just because I'm a worrier, are the user passwords. I am assuming that the passwords are stored as characters (encrypted/hashed or not) that would survive being dumped into a text dump file then reloaded.

    Just do a dump and upload them to here, using phpMyAdmin. No big deal!

    Heh! I see you've never run a Nuke site...

    Nuke uses MD5 hashes...
