See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/mIA9>.

There are two attributes. host_name which is in the GUI on the General
Options page and does appear in config_list -o and is the domain that
appears in email addresses and web_page_url which is not in the GUI
and thus doesn't appear in config_list -o and which controls the
initial part of URLs.

The FAQ explains this and what to do about it.
