I have had to do the same.
The 'best' way is to
1) Install the same version you have on the old host to the new host and then import the database.
2) Then upgrade the new host, which will then upgrade the database.
Technically the new version should update the database but if you are nervous or it doesn't work, do it in stages version 3 > 5. > 6.*
You will need php equal to or greater than 5.6 for b2evo 6.10.6 and above
If you have a conflict with the database version and b2evo version I have a list at http://rogerlovejoy.net/blog/b2evo/database-versions
And ensure you keep a copy of the originasl database :)
Have fun :)
