I have just managed to get a LEMP server setup with MyBB and such but I have no clue on where to start to add my purchased domain to the server. Like, I have to use the IP for now...

Any help is appreciated. (I am using Vultur BTW)

I believe you point your domain to the IP with an A record.

Using the site you bought your domain on, you have to do what they said.

First of all, start using CloudFlare for your DNS, once you've set that up just point the domain to the IP address of your server.

Cloudflare is horrible most of the time.
