How to STOP / CANCEL a domain name transfer?

Last Modified: 2013-12-24
I need to know what 'registry' to contact to cancel or stop a domain name transfer?

The domain name transfer has been already initiated, auth code entered etc.

THEN I realized the name server is incorrect and now I can't update the name server (it is still pointing at the old web host) so I am guaranteed to have up to 1 week of downtime since their account is expiring on the old web host immediately.

Who is the main registry?  How can this process be stopped or modified?
