Can you post the error you get when you do both?

While DNS is a way of telling the rest of the world that what is the IP address where your wordpress site is hosted, a virtual host is the way to tell the incoming request that where from your server’s directory structure the site is hosted. <br> <br>From the information that you have given, you need both.
