If you need further assistance I'd be happy to help. Smile
Very basically:

Backup, backup, backup. Both database and files. Make sure they're complete and not corrupt.
Change your board URL and cookie settings if necessary (probably isn't in this case).
Once your domain has been transferred, shift all your files to the new host.
Make a new database, and import your backup to it.
Edit the database details in ./inc/config.php to the new ones.
