Your 2 ‘CNAME‘ records have been added successfully.
Now you have to add 4 ‘A’ records in DNS records.
This is an optional step, but I would recommend you must complete this step because if you do not complete this then it will cause problems when you will apply for AdSense. This is also important to properly redirect your readers from “mydomain.com” to “www.mydomain.com”

(II). Now you will reach on this official page of Google. Scroll down and then you will see 4 I.P. of Google.

|Again Click on ‘ADD’ button in your DNS settings|
(VI). Select ‘A’ in the first box and enter ‘@’ in the second box after that paste the first I.P in the third box and click on ‘save‘ button (see screenshot).
|Select ‘A’ in the first box, enter ‘@’ in the second box, paste the first I.P in the third box, click on ‘save’ button|
(VII). Now you have to add all another 3 I.P in ‘A’ record by the same procedure shown above.
