- Domain and Website transfer again

I am currently transferring my domain and website to another host.
I went for the option to transfer the domain and website, but without
changing DNS settings.
But if DNS settings are not changed too, it may happen as they say here:
"Please note:Full functionality cannot be guaranteed if you choose DNS
settings other than the original 1&1 settings, such as e-mail and web space.
Domains can be (re)set to 1&1 default settings by clicking Reset. Please
refer to the help text for further information by clicking on the icon in
the right-hand corner of this section.
If I choose to change DNS settings and point them to new host (1&1 in this
case), something like they say here will happen:
"Our domain will be updated with the following DNS settings. Please press
"Save" to submit them.
Name server 1&1 name server
IP Address (A-Record) 1&1 IP Address
Mail Server (MX-Record) 1&1 mail server
My question, really important SEO wise, is if changing these DNS setting and
pointing them to 1&1 will affect PR (2 in this case so far, but would be
stupid to lose even this), and my website rankings in any way?
Re: Domain and Website transfer again
Paying for a registered url name and DNS control is one thing.
Paying for web site hosting space on a server somewhere is another.
If you move the web site hosting, simply go to your url registrar and
repoint the DNS as required. Allowing your registrar to also give you an
intermediary web site just introduces a redirect complication you can best
do without. From the SEO point of view any redirect is slightly
questionable - try to avoid anything over-complicated or that looks even
slighty dubious. Your DNS address may even appear to be in the wrong
country. You want a recorded DNS address near your visitors.
