This is a quick writeup on what steps need to be taken when changing your hosting provider

The hierarchy#

1 You buy your domain from 'Netregistry' At this level you configure the NS (name server) which points to the next entry

2 You host your 'domain' somewhere (incl Netregistry) - You upload your .html stuff into this host - You setup your mail here (MX records)
