General Support: Adding an alternative Domain Address
I managed to set up thewalnutclub.info and have now purchased thewalnut.club as an alternative domain through 123-reg.
Both domains are now hosted on ipage (so far as I can tell).
Both domain names are showing on the Website Settings/Site Domain/Domain Name section of e-voice/thewalnutclub.info/ Manage Website when I log in as Administrator but thewalnut.club has a "Lookup Failed - check domain settings" error message.
Can anybody suggest what I need to re-check to ensure that the .club address is pointing to our site as well.
It looks as if I have found the answer myself but if www.thewalnut.club doesn't now take you in please let me know.
Looks to me like it's working perfectly - well done! :-)

Looks like I am having the same problem (probably me) how did you fix it ? I set up A record and IP address on 123.reg 3 days ago but still getting "wrong IP address"
I just checked www.spondonsportsassociation.org.uk and it is currently returning IP address 188.8.131.52
So I guess you haven't managed to successfully update the DNS settings on the 123-reg control panel. Or, if you have, for some reason they aren't being used.
If you need further help with this you should contact 123-reg support, or check their instructions here:

I basically followed the 123-reg instructions (eventually).
If I remember correctlY:
Having established the hosting, from the existing site from e-voice Website Settings.Site Domain I made a note of the IP address which I needed to point the domain and then went into the Control Panel in 123, unlocked the additional domain name then went into Advanced DNS and put in the destination IP.
If that isn't quite right just have a play around, it took me down quite a few dead end but got there eventually.
