I already have a live site with another hosting company. What would be the best way for me to transfer it without incurring any down time?

The best method of transfer would be to pull down locally a copy of your site. Next, go through our sign up process to get your account details. Upload the new site right after receiving this information. After testing your site to make certain it functions as expected, transfer the domain to MaximumASP with your registrar. 

If your domain is registered through Network Solutions it takes from 24-48 hours for a domain to be transferred. If it is registered any where else you will have to request a name server change, this also takes between 24-48 hours.  This way, there will be a site up at both locations so no downtime will occur for your clients.  Make certain to add any email accounts to your mail server at MaximumASP, so you will continue to receive email after the domain transfers.
