Interesting. I'm also having this issue. However, try pinging just
'my-domain.com' (leave off the initial 'www.'). For example, when I
attempt to ping (literally) 'another-example.com' it strips the dash
out, and appends my default domain (weller-fahy.com) to the result. So
the ping goes out to 'anotherexample.weller-fahy.com' which is
definitely not what I expected.
Have you found an explanation for this behavior?
