I am in need of transferring storefront data - front end and back end storefront data from X Cart v4.4.3 to Prestashop v18.104.22.168. The site is currently hosted with a different service provider.
I am a bit confused on what order things need to happen to make this transition. I need to know if I should install Prestashop on my server beforehand or if this is something you would do as part of the migration process?
I also need to know if I should install and configure a custom Prestashop template before the data is migrated or if this is something that should occur after the data has been migrated?
I also need to know whether the navigation menus should be setup ahead of time or if this should happen after the data has been migrated as well?
Lastly, I need to know if the data can be transferred to the new Prestashop storefront on the new server before the domain is transferred and configured to point to the new server? Basically, I need to know what I need to do at my end ahead of time to facilitate the process of data migration?
I need the full storefront transferred including:

CUSTOMER LIST AND CUSTOMER PROFILES
# of customer profiles listed in your back end? approximately 1013
