Transfer in and custom nameservers

Hi,

 

Just a quick question. Is it possible to do a Transfer-in of a domain to godaddy but also setup Custom Nameservers before the transfer takes place.

 

To explain better, we use register company A for our domain, but point to cloudflare for DNS hosting. I want to transfer the register for this domain to godaddy, but still use the cloudflare DNS servers when the transfer takes place, but I can't have any downtime during this process. I understand you can setup domain records before the transfer takes place, but I need to point to custom nameservers. Is this possible?

 

Thanks

Generally speaking the DNS settings should come in with the transfer so therefore it should stay pointed at Cloudflare as part of the transfer
