Help with vhosts and domains

ApacheUbuntu 18.04

Using Apache2, Ubuntu 18.x. When I type in the droplet ip, I get the same index as the vhosts domain I setup. How can I separate the 2? I want the ip to be unique and separate from the domain. I type in the domain and I get the same. I need help separating them into different directories. I will be adding more domains/sites to host.
Thanks in advance :)

This tutorial is for Ubuntu 16 but it should still work with Ubuntu 18 as well.

The Apache web server is the most popular way to serve web content on the internet. Apache has the ability to serve multiple domains from a single server by using a mechanism called "virtual hosts". If a virtual host is configured correctly for each domain, the web server can correctly route traffic to the appropriate files based on the domain name requested. In this guide, we'll demonstrate how to configure Apache virtual hosts on an Ubuntu 16.04 server.

Thank you @X40C. Took me a minute but I was able to figure it out.
