It sounds like you need to abled the forwarding in the DNS - the forward will point to the www of your domain

Hi,

Thanks for replying

I had a doubt with this solution 

If i forward my domain will google adsense be able to go to that domain after forwarding?

Short answer is yes - what happens is when someone types your domain without the www GoDaddy will forward it to the domain with the www which loads the CNAME you configured in the DNS
