Can not Change CNAME for [AdSense for domains]


#1

I am trying to change my CNAME record so I can use google AdSense for domains. (https://www.google.com/adsense/support/bin/answer.py?answer=76049) When I try to change the record I get an error saying “CNAME records may only be used on sub-domains.”

What am I missing?

Put [color=#0000CC]www[/color] in the first field (www is, in reality, a subdomain!).

Thanks. I found that there was already a www sub domain and it would not let me add it. The way I was able to get around it was to add a dream host parking page, then turn around and delete it. Once I did that it would delete that www sub domain and I could add the new CNAME record.

Thanks for the help.
