Point the A Record for the domain to the IP of the VPS.
Update nameservers to the IP of the VPS, using the A Record IP of the VPS.

Update DocumentRoot in the sites' .conf file to use /var/whatever/websitename

No, that is not what I meant.

Goto http://intodns.com/bournetoraiseshell.com and have a look at my domain setup.
Each of my designated name servers..
Code:
ns73.domaincontrol.com.   ['216.69.185.47']   [TTL=172800]
ns74.domaincontrol.com.   ['208.109.255.47']   [TTL=172800]
Using this info to query each my chosen nameservers can be done using
Code:
dig +short bournetoraiseshell.com @ns73.domaincontrol.com
or
Code:
dig +short bournetoraiseshell.com @ns74.domaincontrol.com
Querying both shows me a 64.87.28.163 IP address. That is my A Record and the IP of my server.

Until both (usually only 2) of your namesevers show the same IP of your VPS, it will never resolve there, or it will about 1\2 of the time.

This A Record is set on the hosts (in my case ns73.domaincontrol.com and ns74.domaincontrol.com) and I do not manage those nameserver hosts, nor do I have any DNS software running on my server. It is not necessary to install any dns software to make these point to your VPS IP.

The task at hand for you is "I need to Update my A Record to <IP_of_VPS> on all of my nameservers."
Whois is your Domain Registrar?

Ultimately, you may need to tell us (here, or me via PM) the name of the domain to help you further.

Sorry, I don't do "quick" (you should work on that), so my last answer is contact support at http://www.tldregistrarsolutions.com/store/support and ask them to update the "A Record" for your Domain to (again the <IP_of_VPS>)
If those nameservers for your domain are not assigned by tldregistrarsolutions.com, then you have to contact those admins to update those A Records as well.
Without a domain name, "quick" was 4 hours ago.

Without a domain name, all you can do is contact support.
Their site has ZERO information about services other that Domain Registration Sales and some crap called Site Builder.

You are very welcome.
