Correct that attacks will go to the IP address, and you're probably
more likely to get IP scanning finding you than someone targeting a
particular domain.  Though the reverse may be true if you publish
anything that triggers the dingbats on the internet.

Also correct that you may want to ensure a particular virtual host is
your default one.  You may want that to be your main website, you may
want that to be some kind of defensive configuration.  There's another
advantage in the default virtual host being the wrong website, it may
aid you in checking you've configured things right for your real

The conf.d/*.conf files are processed in alphabetical order, so name
your default virtual host's configuration file to be picked first (e.g.
000-default.conf).  Filenames don't have to be the same as the domain
name, by the way.
