Usually, if you move your domain from one provider to another provider, this is all taken care of by the new provider. You don't have to do anything yourself.
1. First setup the domain on the new hosting company, and transfer all data to the new hosting.

2. Verify that the new DNS servers reply DNS results for your domain.

( on a linux machine e.g. you can do :  dig yourdomain.com @ns1.newcompanyDNS.com )

3. Also compare the DNS zone file for all entries at old host/DNS servesr with the one in new one to match them ( .e.g if you have custom MX etc )

4. Once all these steps are done , do a final data sync of latest data to the new server

  (i) If you have access to change DNS zone file at existing registrar update the DNS zone with IP of new server at existing Nameservers and then after 24 hours do step (ii)

  (ii) Go to the registrar and then update Nameservers to the new Nameservers for your domain ( if you do not have access to change DNS zone at existing hosting provider then skip step (i) and do this step directly , though its recommended to do step (i) too for smoother transition.
