Okay, so I've set-up my website and everything on my VPS, but how do I make the website display when I visit e.g mydomain.com ? Currently I can only view it from a different computer via the VPS IP address.

I've registered my nameservers and set them to my domain, it's been about 3 days now.

When you have done adding new DNS Entry, you can use the Command line tool "dig" for this. It's allowing you to make DNS requests. Try this:

Code:
#dig YOUR.DOMAIN.COM @NAMESERVER
# Making a resolve request to Google's Nameserver of akendo.eu with only show the A entry.
dig akendo.eu @8.8.8.8 A +noall +answer

; <<>> DiG 9.7.3 <<>> akendo.eu @8.8.8.8 A +noall +answer
;; global options: +cmd
akendo.eu.		86399	IN	A	88.80.202.107
You should also check that you can reach the VPS in the right way. Use "ping" for this.
What Web server do you use?
