Oh, I think the wiki page that was referenced is out of date.  There is 
a new equivalent of that low-level directive, but what you want instead 
is to use the high-level shortcut:
    dnsAlias "start" "ghs.google.com";

As far as I know, reprocessing a domain's configuration nukes all web 
hosts that you've left out.  Your local DNS server is probably caching 
the DNS mapping, so your browser asks the same HCoop server for the site 
content, but our server no longer knows about that host, so it shows the 
default page.
