You can point A record of your domain to your VPS.

You can get more & proper help regarding this from your registrar(i.e. GoDady).

This really isn't a stack overflow (i.e. "programming") question.

But the answer's really simple: you usually get a domain when you get your VPS. Your provider (Godaddy?!? What were you thinking! ;)) will tell you what (if anything) you need to do to point your domain to your server. Usually, it's just done automagically for you.

Whoever sold you the domain should be able to tell you how to set an "A", "MX" etc DNS records to point to whatever server you want. Don't let them cash the check until they tell you ;) – paulsm4 Jun 26 '12 at 6:01
