    Yes that's basically it.

    You'll struggle to get into the admincp if you do it the other way round.

    So I update the settings in the ACP then do the backup? Then move it?

    For a different domain, you should update the URL settings in the admincp *before* making the transfer.
    Otherwise, the process is much the same.

    Yes. Close the forum, copy the database and files to your new host and re-point the "A" records. Re-open the forum on the new host and wait for the A record changes to propagate (anyone who sees the old forum will get the closed message).

    A good host should be helping you achieve the move - if they aren't interested, then perhaps you've made the wrong choice!

    Is it possible to move the forum to a new webhost?
