    You need just change name server records for your domain. I'm pretty sure that it should be possible with help of eleven2. Just ask them what you need.

    No, all actions must be done on Godaddy side. I think that you'd better do it yourself

    You can keep the existing nameservers and just change the IN A address to the new host IP from godaddy domain control panel. Or change the nameservers of the domain at godaddy to new hosts's nameservers.

    Best way is to switch Name Servers to new provider!

    If it's a good domain name, never let it go back to the market, a lot of people are waiting to snap your name.

    If you are happy with godaddy's domain registration service, don't transfer it. Or else, you can transfer it to other registrar as you like.

    If you like your domain and godaddy's domain registration service, the best solution is just change the old DNS to the DNS of new hosting provider. You can do it on Godaddy domain control panel.

    That's what I would do, and I'd continue to keep the domain with a company, and the hosting with another. You can transfer the domain to another registrar later on if you dislike Godaddy enough.

    Exactly, because GoDaddy is also a registrar, that is their core business, so a nameserver switch will do and you can cancel your hosting services with them.

    Its often better to keep registrar and webhost apart, so it is just better to update your namesevers to point to your new webhost.

    Agree, and it's not easy to find some company who is professional at both Domain Registration and Hosting. Actually, I am wondering whether such a company exists. Anyone can help find out one?
