Transferring domain from shared hosting to self-managed VPS

So as the title suggests I switched my hosting plan from shared hosting to a self-managed VPS so I could get root access on my server and now I'm unsure about how to transfer my existing domain for use with my new server.  Any help is appreciated.

Never mind I just had to reconfigure the DNS

2 Problems.  I just bought my URL today and built a site on WIX and Godaddy will not allow me to UNLOCK or Transfer.  It should have warned me that I couldn't transfer for 60 days or else I would have never bought from Godaddy.  Can you please provide me with a work around so I can get my business website up and running and not lose sales.   semprevivoranchllc.com

You can't transfer for 60 days per ICANN policy, but you don't need to.  You can easily connect a GoDaddy domain to your Wix hosted website using these instructions: https://au.godaddy.com/help/connect-my-domain-to-wix-16432.
