Is changing the hostname in /etc/hostname and /etc/hosts all we need to do to change the host name of the vps?

Hi all, so I have purchased a VPS running Debian Jessie 8.4.

I was wondering if I could use guides for Ubuntu with Debian, seeing as Ubuntu is a derivative of Debian?

Can anyone recommend some websites with good tutorials?
I am interested in setting up Postfix with virtual users/email accounts (not server user accounts), anti-spam and a web interface for email users.

So to have a domain name point to the VPS all one needs to do is enter the IP address into the domain registrar A record?
Is there anything that needs to be done server side?

Thank you
