Sounds to me like you are just wanting to change where the domain name resolves to and not actually transfer it. Transferring a domain typically means transferring from one registrar to another, like from Enom to godaddy.
If you are simply wanting the domain to point to another host or server you would log into your domain name manager at whichever registrar the domain was registered at and change the name servers.
If you are the host, just create the account on your server or reseller plan, then log into the domain name manager and change the name servers to yours. Keep in mind that if you already have an existing site up at another host, once you change the name servers after a few hours it will no longer go to that site. So unless you don't care if people see a blank page or an index file after you change the name servers, you will want to make sure and have your site in place on the new server before hand.

Normally you can log into your domain name manager by going to the website where you registered the domain. For example, if you registered the name at godaddy you would go to godaddy.com and there is a "my account" link in the upper right corner.

There is normally no charge to make changes to your name servers. If the web hosting company registered the domain name for you you should contact them and find out if they will transfer it to you. Or, if they registered it in your name they should be able to give you the info you need to log in and make the changes yourself.
If it is a domain name that was provided "free" with sign up, they may have registered it in their name.

They did reg for me but it wasn't for free. I will ask them to change it for me. I only reg in Jan this year so i can always transfer it later this year. Which company would be the best or most reliable to use for future bus. I read a lot of reviews but aren't sure of which is the best. I reg a account at godaddy. Starting a new hosting bus i will need to reg with somebody. If i want to reg a domain for a customer can i do so thru my account with there ownership details. I don't believe i should reg the domain in my name or should i or not

Well, thats up to you I guess. What really helps clients is if they can register domains from your site. A simple reseller plan (enom has a good one) will allow you to resell domains that will be in your clients name, thus not having to worry about ownership problems.
As far as where to transfer your existing domain, I would say you are safe to transfer to either godaddy or enom. I have had great experience with both companies.

All that is said is true. You need to contact the company which registered the domain for you and tell them to give you the login details so you can manage it.█ For Reliable and Affordable Web Hosting Packages, Please visit kooshin.com
