AdSense is a good choice to earn money and the best thing is that it’s free..
To have an activated adsense account a Google email (gmail) account is needed. Google offers two kinds of programs i.e.,
1. Hosted program and
2. Domain hosted program
In the first program i.e., hosted program activation of account is quite easy as compared to later (domain program) because an AdSense hosted account allows you only to monetize your content that you created on AdSense host partner websites such as YouTube etc. The activation for second program (i.e., self-hosted domain program) is little difficult.
