Hi @slotsakti,

So you want your Domain to load your Droplet, is that correct? IF yes, you first need to decide whether you want to use Apache or Nginx. Since you are still new to this, it shouldn’t matter. The end product is the same at least for a starter as yourself. The good thing is, there are tutorials for both so that’s a plus.

Anyway, I’ll give you the tutorials for both Apache and Nginx and you can decide which one to use:

Apache:

Nginx:

Please notice they are both for Ubuntu 20.04.

Additionally, the tutorials will help you configure the other necessary stuff for your website to run. You just need to point your DNS of your Domain to your Droplet and to be more specific am A record of your root and www domain.

A “LAMP” stack is a group of open-source software that is typically installed together to enable a server to host dynamic websites and web apps. This term is actually an acronym which represents the Linux operating system, with the Apache web server. The site data is stored in a MySQL database, and dynamic content is processed by PHP. In this guide, we will install a LAMP stack on an Ubuntu 20.04 server.
