Domain Name Basics: An Introduction
Basically, if you own the domain name and move to a new hosting service, they will help you on the domain transfer to their server. If you still use the old hosting service, but plan to deactivate it some time in the future, then you need to set up a 301 redirect on the old hosting service to your new hosting service.
Being indexed in Google depends on a lot of factors. Mostly if you have submitted to the search engines after completing your site, adding new content and meeting Google's requirements for their 'Bots. You need to set up things like a robots.txt, sitemap, etc.. Use Google's Webmaster Tools for all this.
Your pages should be coded semantically to improve your ranking. Especially with Google.

There is an old phrase that "Content is King". It's been around quite a while in website site design but essentially it still holds true. Ensure your site has lots of quality content relating to your subject matter and it will help. But DON'T repeat the same thing over and over - it doesn't work like that and will have an adverse effect. Also, if possible, try and get your links to your site (incoming links) on other quality sites. This is'nt always easy but be imaginative and it works a treat
