The apache virtual host documentation is a good place to start:

But it sounds like you might need something a little more basic. In
particular, before you even start configuring apache, you need to
configure DNS to map the desired hostname to the IP address for your
server. This is out of scope for this list in general, especially
since it is impossible to tell exactly what point you are starting
from. Your ISP would probably be a good source of help for this
question, or maybe something like:

Once you get the DNS mapped correctly, you need to configure apache.
If you find the apache docs too dense, a quick google will turn up
dozens of tutorials:
Just be sure to check what they say against the official docs, since
the quality of the tutorials can vary widely.
