My account has been suspended because of a DELETED campaign.

I created a ad quite some time back when I am trying to figure out the Adwords interface. I do not have any domain back then, so I created the ad with the URL: a.com ... After I figured out how to go about creating the ads, keywords, targeting, etc.. I deleted this ad without even running it. 

 

Now Google informed me that my account is suspended because of a.com

 

To resolve it. They suggest:

- setup a.com (any idea how much this domain is going to cost?)

I registered some domains lately, 

I don't know if I can post its website here(violate any regulation maybe).

But it doesn't cost much, $8.99 for a ".com".

leave me your email address if you need further information.

Hello iworkforthem

You are not quite clear : what was the reason Google gave for the suspension.?

Please keep in mind that until you fix the domain, you cannot be un-suspended. So, buying a new domain won't solve the problem.

Google said a.com is not a working domain, asked me to setup a.com with proper web hosting, etc.

Your host  provider should be familiar with the technical sides: they vary depending on the provider. The same applies about the  costs

Does nobody see the absurdity in this. You should not be setting up a fictitious domain just to secure Google's approval. Google needs to adjust its system so that common sense can be allowed to prevail over computer-generated idiocy. Someone from Google should be going through the messages on this board, picking out the cases where the system has clearly gone moronic, and simply overriding the system.
