    Have you changed the nameservers to point to your server?

    The nameservers for your Domain name of www.mydomainname.com has to point to your server in order for www.mydomainname.com to work. Since you have created an ip based site the server will tell any request to goto the correct website as long as your site was setup correctly.

    If you bought the domain www.mydomainname.com and changed the nameservers to point to your server then it may take up to 3 days for the site to work. This step is done when registering the new domain name or moving a site from one server to another.

    Hope this helps
