The company I work for is looking to move both the hosting and registrar for a domain.
We're a bit confused given the 5 calendar day thing; so wondering what the correct steps would be to minimise downtime?
We already have the new host up and running ,so that's not a problem.
Been doing some reading on it, and this is what I gather should happen:
• Change the nameservers to point to new host (whilst remaining on current registrar)
• Wait 48 hours for propagation period
• Request a domain authorisation from current registrar
• Process the domain transfer to new registrar
Any suggestions? The current host/registrar is absolutely terrible (their support doesn't even know how to back-up a database... amongst other things).
