anybody have experience with host, dns, live database migration best practice?

what i am trying to accomplish is to migrate my site that has a live db running that can only be down for a very minimal amount of time to a more dependable host (domain.com is horrible btw).

what i am thinking so far, get the site replicated to the new host sans db > update A records to the new host > when we hit our maintenance window, lock and move the db > change name servers > pray.

anybody a lot better than me on this want to chime in, i usually end up with a bit of down time and really cant afford to go past my window.
