Will transferring domain name affecting Google PR

I bought a hosting package comes with a online site builder and created a website with the online site builder without knowledge of HTML code. The online site builder is not so good. So I decided to cancel the hosting and I'll lose my website except my domain name and transfer to another web host provider also offer a free site builder but it is a offline site builder like MS Front Page. What are the thinks and HTML code I must take care so that my website will still remain in search engines index and stay with the current Google page rank?

Comments and suggestions are appreciated.

Yes, but if you use a 301 redirect, you should be able to save some of that.

As long as you keep your Domain name and properly transfer all your files and pages to the new webhost, the effects are minimal. Transferring to a new host will change your IP address but as long as it's the same Domain name, you'll be fine.

Transferring to a better webhost is actually a good move.
I suggest you go to this page: What to Look For in a Hosting Provider
This will give you more information on how to choose your webhosting provider.
