I want to have the ability to put advertisements on this site and earn money with it. Hopefully, no lawyer will sue me because of a strange law I have never heard about - you are facing this risk as soon as you make money with your website, as far as I understand...

Google has two programs for advertisements. There is AdWords for people who want to buy advertising space and AdSense for webmasters who want to earn money by showing advertisements. I registered there and got a message that I will have to change the A-records of my domains. Then I read https://wincent.com/wiki/Adding_Google_AdSense_to_MediaWiki and brought Google Ads to my website.

Google send me a link to https://www.google.com/adsense/v3/app?hl=en_US#home where I have a cockpit for my GoogleAdSense activities.

Changing DNS

added

@	                 IN A       216.239.32.21

to https://robot.your-server.de/dns, removed

www                      IN A       92.51.132.237

added

www                      IN A       pub-5986435568536490.afd.ghs.google.com

On kis.hosteurope.de, added pub-5986435568536490.afd.ghs.google.com to www. Then www.linuxintro.org pointed to google.

Then my mail server did not work any longer. Researching it, the problem was:

# /etc/init.d/postfix start
Starting mail service (Postfix)                                       failed
tstaerk was here. postfix_bin is /usr/sbin/postfix
# /usr/sbin/postfix 
postfix: fatal: parameter inet_interfaces: no local interface found for 216.239.34.21

Solved this problem by removing all the

@	                 IN A       216.239.

lines.
