    My family and I are all on shared hosting plans, from various providers.

    I sort of want to move everything into one account somewhere to have better control over everything, and to save money.

    How do I best get all the data and not forget something. How different is shared hosting from say a managed vps?

    I might need to know a bit more about the whole setup. But the first important step is:
    Make a complete backup of everything. Make sure you have all the account written down, their details, and know if any crontabs/schedulers or email tasks are there. If someone has a blog, make sure you have a copy of the configuration etc as well. So you can figure out which database belongs to what.

    Backing it up, and knowing the backup works.. is a first and important step.
