    Setting up an AdSense account does not normally include any changes to your domain. It sounds like you made a wrong turn somewhere. Your domain's dns servers and CNAME are managed at the host. I would try to cancel whatever you're changing and go back to look at AdSense, start over and read carefully.

    PS Even a Newbie can start a new thread.

    I split your post to it's own thread.

    What you are asking about is the Adsense for parked domains. I don't know the answer, but there was another thread about people having and resolving the issues.

    You will need to contact GoDaddy for information on how to change your CName record for a domain registered there.

    Well,thank you very much friends for your help,finally my account is activated and my adsense based website is running.I started to watch adsense reports for domains and have this picture:

    Total page impressions -22
    Landing page impressions-20
    Results page impressions-2
    Page eCPM-$33.42

    Your click amount depends on varies factors like user location, your niche etc. BTW, it is against Adsense TOS to share your statistics !

    Once again, a website owner gets the cold, hard truth about Adsense -- it ain't easy to make money with it.

    Sure, there are the "big guys" -- including one or two people here, I suspect -- who make serious money with Adsense.

    But I think most of us learn in a hurry that making money with Adsense is a combination of a lot of hard work on site content + some Google magic + a lot of pure luck.

    Don't let Joel Comm fool you -- it ain't an easy thing or a sure thing to make good money with Adsense. Not any more.

    Tried it.. it was rubbish. It could not match keywords to the sites at all, so I ended up using Sedo..which is marginally less rubbish.

    Yes, SEDO is a good option also one can go for GoDaddy domain parking which has worked well for few.

    Doesn't GoDaddy charge you for the priviledge of them making money from your parked domains(s) so they can share a little bit with you? (Not real sure about today, but I know they did charge a while back.)

    SEDO works fairly well for some of my "waiting to be developed" domains - pays the renewal fee for nearly all of them (even the ones that don't produce well).

    Adsense works well if applied to the right pages of the right sites. The ol' MFA sites no longer produce and the Big G is getting antsy about them - no longer within the scope of their TOS (if they ever really were). The MFA route produces poor results for advertisers and readers alike, but it sure helped G gain momentum about four years ago.

    Properly done, AdSense is (can be) a great additional source of revenue. I don't make a killing with it, but the revenue did buy me a nice toy last year.

    What you are asking about is the Adsense for parked domains.
    If I was king of the world (good thing I'm not) I would do away with buying massive amounts of name for speculation and then parking them with Adsense. It gets old trying to find a good name that's not bought and for sale. Domain names should be for building sites.

    Yes, they do charge for initial setup. Actually, they offer two plans as listed HERE but I have heard that they pay good.

    But, one should use all the available options because sometimes things don't go well with one but some do well with the other.
