Why don't you just create a simple page for that domain and host it free 
of charge on netlify, github-pages,, Azure or AWS 
and point your dns to that page.  This will solve your problem and when 
you are ready to host your own webserver then you can repoint to your 
own webserver.

Did you know you can rent the server on Google Cloud or Microsoft Azure 
or AWS for few pennies per month.  They look after the server and you 
look after the management side of it.  IOW you control the server but 
hardware is provided by them.

Before anybody asks further, yes you can run Apache/Linux/MySQL on 
Microsoft or Google or AWS.  People should try it for free as they allow 
sandbox for trials and for learning purposes.
