Default Problem using my website on an OVH domain name


I have a Debian with ISPConfig 3 install on it, I create a new website called leloisir.fr.
For information, debian is running in VirtualBox.

To access leloisir.fr from inside:

I edit my C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts to add : leloisir.fr

I can access to my website by : leloisir.fr

To access leloisir.fr from outside :

I make a port forwarding from 8080 to (This is working!)

The mainly problem is that I want to redirect my domain name wich come from OVH to my website "leloisir.fr".
I try to make a redirection but it bring me to the index.html of /var/www

What can I do to tell my domain name www.leloisir.fr to point on my website leloisir.fr?

Thanks a lot

You must change the DNS records for your domain so that the point to your router's public IP. If you use a dyndns.org hostname for your public IP, you can set up CNAME records for your domain that point to the dyndns.org hostname.
