The web site is presumably doing name-based virtual hosting, and the
browser will send the alias, not the canonical name, in the "Host:" header
when it contacts the server. Since they haven't put the alias in the
virtual host configuration (and it sounds like the hosting provider refused
to do so) the CNAME won't "work fine".
