I need to create a full backup of an existing Joomla website running Joomla version 3.4.8 Stable (I known, it's very old) and transfer it to a new hosting space so that I will be able to upgrade it.

I don't have any FTP, SSH or database account available on the existing hosting.

Is there any way that I can download a full backup (files and database) of the website and transfer it to a new hosting?

You can use Akeeba backup.

It supports Joomla! 3.4 and later.

Does full backup including database and does make it possible to transfer the whole site to another domain

    Akeeba is awesome. It also has integration with many 3rd party sites like Dropbox that you could use to access the completed backup file. Aug 1, 2018 at 2:48
