I have the following scenario.

Domain Name : mydomain.com

I have registered a country level tdl with our ISP.
country tdl : www.mydomain.com.qa

ISP has created a CNAME to my www.mydomain.com.qa to point to mydomain.com.

The problem is, when I enter www.mydomain.com.qa on browser's address bar, it shows my default page of the webserver instead of showing mydomain.com.

Can anybody suggest how to resolve this issue?

You need to configure www.domain.com.qa to point to the place where the domain.com files are. Are you on shared hosting? If so, which company? – paulmorriss Sep 27 '11 at 10:39
Your web server needs to be configured to handle the new domain. What web server are you using? – Craig Sep 27 '11 at 16:51
Yes, I have a Dedicated server with Plesk Panel running on RHEL 5. How I would configure? Please advice. – Muneer Sep 28 '11 at 12:16

After CNAME in DNS, you have to assign in Hosting Panel (can say nothing about Plesk) www-site as alias for mydomain.com (which also must to exist)
