Domain Mapping

I've tried everything.I installed the domain mapping pluggin And I cannot get it to work. I followed the directions to the letter.I updated the IP forwarding to the IP address of my host gator account (ANAME) When I ping the domain I'm getting the correct IP. But when I go to the url "" it loads another page(looks like a HG redirect) and not the newly created "" (the user created blog) Would I need to set each mapped domain up as a parked domain or should it just work by forwarding to the ip. I've worked with hostgator and they say it all looks good on their end.
