1.First you need to make sure that your domain is active and have been registered for more than 60 days.

2.Then you need to apply for a transfer to the registrar that you intend to move your domain over to.
3.The registrar will contact the administrator of your domain.
4.Upon receiving the email notification, the administrator of your domain has to agree to accept the transfer.
5.when the email has been accepted, your transfer is effectively in progress

1. Buy a domain name.
2. Host it somewhere (other words buy a appropriate hosting for it)
3. Backup all your webcontent and DBs
4. Deploy your webcontent and DBs on another hosting platform.

Quite easy, eh ?
