Google AdSense for Domains being killed

Google has informed the users of their AdSense for Domains platform that they are discontinuing this service.

The company said in a notice:

We’re contacting you because you’re using AdSense for Domains to monetize your undeveloped domains. After evaluating the benefits of our partner network, we’ve 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.

Here is the timeline for its discontinuation:

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 be available in AdSense accounts

This is a good decision by the company. This feature is mostly abused by domain owners and Google is doing good by discarding this product.

Google is advising the users of this service to switch to a new domain parking provider.
