    Hey,

    I've setup a CNAME in the DNS of one of my servers/domains to point to another domain/server of mine. But for some reason when i try to load the subdomain.domain.co.uk which the CNAME is setup for it just takes me to cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

    When i ping the address i can see that its pinging the correct server, but it wont load the contents of the domain the CNAME is set to.

    What have i done wrong? I've tried with a few other domains all pointing to the same domain and all show the cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi page.

    Thanks,
    Mike
