Have you considered not switching platforms? I would think the cost of
moving all your mediawiki content to a new platform and retraining all
your users would far exceed the price of a managed VPS on or, where you can install mediawiki
yourself and keep doing what you're doing.

You didn't say how many users you have, but I run mediawiki on a cheap
shared VM at (about $5/month) just fine.
