Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I enabled google adsense for domains on a godaddy account, and suddenly my website is not accessible anymore. I get "The page cannot be found" error message.
Is this temporary and expected after changing DNS entries? i followed the instructions as provided by Google.
please help? should i just wait for the changes to take effect and how long will this take?
thanks a lot
Try pinging the domain to see if you get an IP address, as this will tell you whether DNS is working for the domian.
Your A record is now configured. Keep in mind that changes to DNS record settings may take up to 48 hours.
Does that mean I have to wait this long for my website to come back online? this is insane, unless i am readig it wrong
You don't ned to ping the IP you need to ping the domain e.g.
this will return the IP address - if you haven't configured DNS correctly then you will either get a bad IP address or no IP address.
I pinged the domain name, and it times out .
But there is something new now. I dont see the 'page not found' error anymoore. I just see a completely white/blank page.
What else can I do?
I had some problems with the cname attaching the domain onto the back of the google server when I set it up. Your adsense for domains control panel will show you that error.
