It shouldnt do unless you change the name servers as well but as long as you have the new nameservers configured with the correct DNS entries then this should cause no downtime.

The name servers are not necessarily with the registrar.

Where do you set your DNS information?

i am using 1and1.com for hosting, 1and1.com as a registrar, google as a mailserver
my nameservers are n1.1and1.com

i will not be using 1and1 for hosting



and want to transfer to godaddy as a mailserver
and i am using godaddy for hosting so i can use their nameservers

hosting does not matter for me because I am just using the domain name for email

so you will need to configure your DNS records in the godaddy name servers when you make the transfer.

As this change would normally take 48 hours to go through you shouldn't experience any down time.

you won't be able to make the change until after you make the registrar change unless you already have the DNS ready to go at GoDaddy?
