I worked with the documentation ( and search almost every blog post, but it didn't work. I am owning a linux v-server with Ubuntu 16.04 and Plesk. I created two Domain-Aliases for the .at and .ch domain (without 301 redirect). The Server settings (apache and ngnix) are both correct. When i try to activate them in the wordpress backend, it says domains are invalid.
But if I open the domains eg. like hidden link it displays a 404 error, but with the selected language.

Can you help me?
Best regards
