Hi could somebody give me some info on how to transfer a website please as I have never had to do it before.

My client's current web host are phasing out their services and have asked me to transfer their host/domain to different companies.

The url of the site is a domain, so I believe that to transfer the domain, i need to buy the same domain and alter the IPS TAG to direct to the new host? Have i got that right?

When i buy the domain will I need some sort of information from the current host to be able to alter it?

Also, is it possible to buy a domain from 'companyX' and the hosting from 'companyY'?

I am really not sure how to go about it, so any advice would be tip top.

Thank you
