    You probably need to check for an index.html or index.htm file in the folder of the second domain. In most hosting configurations .html / .htm files take precedence over .php files and since the coming soon page is an html file it is being displayed.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "root for 2 domains". You can run WordPress in Multisite mode if you are trying to run one WordPress install and two sites but if all you want is to point the second site to the first (2 domains, 1 site) then that can be done via your DNS settings at your registrar.

    Hope that helps :)

    On a GD deluxe plan, you have to set the domain to point to that folder. Log into your hosting control panel and select hosted domains. Then choose the domain to use and set it to point to that folder where the second WP site is. Note that is will show "pending setup" for a while.
