CNAME links to WordPress blog but redirects cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

I've got IIS hosting site( and wanted to add wordpress blog site on this website, but wordpress is PHP based so I used a tricky way.
I've got PHP hosting site( so set up self-hosted wordpress blog on this site then adding CNAME on domain, I believed it should work.

So, installed wordpress in PHP hosting site(cpanel hosting) and create blog site on this wordpress, the url is Then created subdomain from cpanel( which linked to as root folder.
When I go to, it's working so good.

One last thing what I did is adding CNAME from site2 zone manager. ->

I think this should work because is working properly.
But when I go to, redirected to "/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi" page then showed "SORRY ... If you are the owner of this website, please contact your hosting provider" message.

I cleared cache from my browner and tried from other browser but didn't work.
And added rewrite rule on .htaccess file on root folder but nothing worth.

I checked site URL from wordpress settings page, the site address(URL) was "" which was correct.

I believe if destination url of CNAME is working, the CNAME should work.

But when I try to access a file in destination folder using this url,, returns 404 not found while is working.

So, CNAME( seems be pointing wrong directory.

Is there anything I missed or did wrong?

Thank you,
