I am a novice at cloud hosting
I have previously hosted my very modest sites succesfully on "Traditional cPanel shared Hosting " succesfully linking my domains on one supplier  to the hosting server  from anoter firrm supplying the server merely by changing the name servers  
I am making my first trial venture into managing a basic cloud server
I cannot as yet get a domain to point to the cloud server succesfully .
this is my set up
I have a rackspace cloud server  its IP  address  is  say

I have intalled an  OS  on the cloud server  and also  webmin and Virtualmin so that I can manage a few small personal  sites and do some development work .

the server is running ( 3 days old )

I have changed the  "nameservers"   in the control panel at the domain name register  supplier to = those supplied by rackspace for my cloud server

I have changed  the dns record in the conrol panel at the domain name register  supplier to  the ip address of my cloud server

if I type in the IP address of the cloud server in a web browser I get to see a page  "It works but no content yet " so i presume  apache is running just fine
If i type into my  browers the url of my domain +  I get to see a  "server  not found " error

What do I need to do to correctly get  my domain name  to link  correctly to my  cloud server  please  thanks

Thanks in Advance
