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? Sep 27, 2011 at 10:39
  • Your web server needs to be configured to handle the new domain. What web server are you using?

  • Yes, I have a Dedicated server with Plesk Panel running on RHEL 5. How I would configure? Please advice.

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)
