How do I host a domain?

Posted February 1, 2014 3.8k views
I know it sounds like a silly question. But I have no idea how to do it with a VPS. I can do it with normal web hosting.. Just not A VPS. I want to host a domain I have a Linux box and its running Aapache2. Do I just point the ips to my VPS and that's it?

You can add the domain on the DNS page in the DigitalOcean control panel and then create a virtual host for Apache. You can Google tutorials for your operating system on how to create a virtual host file for Apache.
"... I have a Linux box ..."

What operating system?
Sorry it's a Ubuntu 12.04.3 x64.
I could Google it.. But I have no idea what to Google :(
