Google has recently announced a new step which many could find hard to believe. The message that I received from Google today indicates that the search giant has finally come to conclusion to retire its Adsense for Domain feature that comes with all adsense accounts.
The new move shows that all the sites that have been serving the ad will no longer be able to show google ads for viewers any more. And not only that, publishers that are using this type of google service will no longer be able to use Google adsense for Domain anymore.
You can view the message that I got from Google today explaining this move and why it is so.
We are contacting you because you are using AdSense for Domains to monetize your undeveloped domains. After we evaluated the benefits of our partner’s network, we have decided to retire the Hosted domains product within AdSense. Going forward, undeveloped domains will only be served through our existing AdSense for Domains distribution network.
Our records show that 2 of your Hosted domains will be affected by this upcoming change, which will follow the schedule below:
- March 21: You’ll no longer be able to create new Hosted domains
- April 18: Hosted domains will become inactive and it’ll no longer be possible to earn from them
- June 27: Hosted domains will no longer as usual be available in AdSense accounts
To continue monetizing (adding value) your undeveloped domains, you can migrate your entire domain portfolio to any domain parking provider. Find out how in our Migration Guide:
Please note that this upcoming change won’t affect any other AdSense products you’re currently using or the availability of other products to you. Also, reporting on your Hosted domains will remain available throughout the schedule above and for a period following the retirement.
For more information see the Help Center. We appreciate your understanding, and thank you for your patience as we continue to develop new features and offerings within AdSense.
The Google AdSense Team
So, don’t let this type of news meet you unprepared, start looking for an alternative to monetize your domains.
