Newbie with some questions

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

A few questions if people would be so kind as to help me out

1. I previously had a domain name for my business. I stopped running the business and foolishly let the domain name go. Thankfully I was able to get it back, but the previous owner must have bought an extended hosting plan because for the last two years the domain has shown up as I originally had it when I owned it (so the person who got it when it expired kept all the content the same, just bought the domain because they thought the website was very well-developed and didn’t want to see it lost). So fastforward a couple years to this point and I now want to start up my business again now that life circumstances have made it possible again. I already own the domain name and am looking at getting it hosted somewhere new because I obviously don’t control wherever it is being hosted now, but how can I move the content to the new domain? I know how to go into where I have the domain registered to change the DNS settings, but how do I move the actual *content* of the website that is currently there?

2. Crocweb gets great reviews from what I’ve seen on here so I was thinking of going with them, but how easy is it to edit or create webpages with them? Ideally I’d like to move the current content of the website to the hosting at crocweb and then be able to tweak the info. on it, colours, layout, add and delete pictures and text, update the calendar page, etc. I also have two other domains I’ve purchased and I’d like to be able to develop one of them from scratch and just have the other one redirect to it. I see they have RVSiteBuilder and Softaculous AutoInstaller. Should that cover what I would need as a noob with little experience but reasonable intelligence to figure things out?

3. Is Softaculous Autoinstaller a program that includes wordpress and other things to make webdevelopment easier? I see some sites advertise Softaculous and some say Softaculous autoinstaller, are they the same things? If I develop a website with one of those and then want to change things up with my website down the road, how easy would it be (ie. If I develop my website with RV or Softaculous, am I always stuck with them?)

Thanks in advance for any advice or help given!
