That's the beauty of asymmetric warfare. You don't need a lot of money, or an army of people. You can do it from the comfort of your living room, with a beer in your hand.

20MB of files or 20MB worth of DB info? My suggestion would be to run an export on the old database and then an import on the new one. I don't think a direct transfer is possible. To cut this down, you can only export certain tables, doing it in chunks. Keep in mind that depending on the options you choose in phpmyadmin, it's going to take a while for the file to be generated and sent to you as a download. I'd suggest doing the zipped version as well, as it'll take about 1/10th of the time.
