Switching Hosting Companies

I currently have my domain hosted through a company called Network Solutions.  I have been with this company for around 4 years, but I'm having issues with my e-mail and posting to my blog from my phone.  If that last feature worked, this blog would be updated more often...

I'm currently looking at a company called bluehost that gets rave reviews from the WordPress (that's the company I use for this blog) community.  In fact, as I type this, I am chatting with a tech support guy about that very feature.  Sounds like it works well with them.

The biggest downside with switching hosting companies, is that I have a couple forms setup at work that feed through a CGI script on my personal website.  Vince never got any of our servers setup with the services to host web forms, so I created them on my server.  I either need to break down and setup a server at work to take care of this, or find a way to seamlessly migrate the forms to bluehost...

Decisions, decisions... At least I have until early July to decide what I'm going to do. That's when my contract is up for renewal at NetworkSolutions.
