Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hello, i had a manage server on a host but i was paying expensive so i decided to change host and got a cheaper with 0 support other then reboots.
I also hired 3 different "programmers" to migrate all mysites, none of them really completed the job.
Result , all my files and db was transfer but there is a nameserver problem.
The new machine uses cpanel and has also root access.
The problem is , nameservers were apparently setup wrongly for what i understand my TTL were not down, what ever that means.
Also the ns1 and ns2 where not set properly
I had someone fix this but now it is time to point all mysites to the new dns1 and dns2 that were created.
My domain is : helpme24h.com and the new nameserver are dns1.helpme24h.com and dns2.helpme24h.com
The subdomains dns1.helpme24h.com and dns2.helpme24h.com are status : ready with my host 1and1. But the site helpme24h.com status is updating.
Would it be a bad thing if i point all of my 10 other sites to the new dns1.helpme24h.com before they are totally propagated, since apparently i have to wait 24h-48h or it does not matter if i point my sites to the new dns1 and dns2. If you can answer this quick then i will point my sites on my registrar to the new dns1 and dns2. Because i can not wait 48hours since my sites have lots of traffic.
Until the new authoritative DNS Servers information propagates out no one will look at the host/domain info on the new DNS servers to find the site locations.. everything will continue running on the old DNS servers until that happens..
You DO want to have all your sites in the config of your new DNS servers so that what the switch happens no one will notice. if it's not there, all your sites will vanish from the internet when everyone starts looking at your new DNS server instead of the old ones..
