    You mentioned free transfer.. How much disk space/bandwidth are you using with your current host? Are you using shared hosting?

    Several hosts may fit that category.
    To help more, need to know more about the site(s).

    More information is required: disk space, bandwith, any 'special content' of the site (if anything can arouse discussions, from Wikileaks to warez), any special pre-installed programs.
    It also depends on what control panel you are using. If you use CPanel - most hosts would move free of charge. Also, every host offers money back guarantee.
    Just do not be seduced by "unlimited", "unmetered" or offering trillions of gigabytes spoace webhosts. Overselling is not the best idea...

    I assume you are talking about free account migration instead?
    Most of the companies will gladly provide you help with migration.

    I see you have a candidate for your web hosting company so maybe you can try them first and then search for another one if something change?

    Well, I don't need huge amount of bandwidth and disk space because my personal web site is not so big.. I also need Linux OS (Cent OS).

    I realize that there are many web hosts that can meet my demands, but I need reliable and quality hosting service along with helpful support..

    I am hosting with Totalchoicehosting. Their basic plan is some 55$ a year (in case you pay annually), so far- no problems with hosting. Support is excellent (live chat, support ticket, presales questions on their forum).Therefore, I reccomend Totalchoice.

    EuroVPS and Stablehost have some of the best shared/reseller support I've seen to date.
    Very quick, very good at actually resolving issues timely.

    I would look there.

    Hostgator is surely one of the more well know and more reliable services in the overselling field of the market, had a pretty good experience with them.

    Glowhost has been around a while, do a search for "Glowhost" and "Review" on Web Hosting Talk.

    Best of luck to you!
