When you transfer the domain and it asks you if you want to use the old name servers - answer no. I messed this one up and kept using GoDaddy's "domaincontrol.com" name servers and DNS stopped resolving eventually. If you mess this up too, you'll need to go to the "Hosted Zone" for your site and copy the records in the "NS" list to domain's name servers on the registered domains page.

lynx -source rawgit.com/transcode-open/apt-cyg/master/apt-cyg > apt-cyg
install apt-cyg /bin
