How to simply upgrade Hosted AdSense account to normal AdSense account

Google has made it easy to promote your AdSense account from hosted AdSense account to regular AdSense account. All you have to do is, submit the name of a website owned or controlled by you where you want to use your AdSense. Then Google will do a manual review of the website and check for policy compliance. If the website you mentioned meets the quality criteria and policy compliance requirements, Google will upgrade your account to normal account and the “hosted account” label will be permanently removed.

NOTE: If you do not have your own website, you may not be able to upgrade from Hosted AdSense Account to regular AdSense account. It also means, you will not be able to use your hosted AdSense account in non-Host revenue sharing sites like

Follow the steps below to upgrade your account and remove the label:

1. Login to your AdSense account

2. Click on the tab “Home” and click on “Account Settings”

3. Look for the label that says “Only host sites are allowed to show ads for your account”. Click the “edit” link next to it.

4. In the next page, you need to provide the url of the website on which you want to show your Ads. Just type the full url of the home page and click “Submit” 

The website will be submitted to Google for review and you will hear back from them within a few days. Just in case Google decide not to approve your request to remove the limitation, you can still continue to use the AdSense in the host websites.
