I would recommend using Nginx Server blocks, that way you can specify your domain name as the server_name.

When using the Nginx web server, server blocks (similar to the virtual hosts in Apache) can be used to encapsulate configuration details and host more than one domain off of a single server. In this guide, we'll discuss how to configure server blocks in Nginx on an Ubuntu 16.04 server.
