Starting today, Google are no longer allowing sign-ups to the free Google Apps service. Any existing trials or business accounts can be downgraded to free in the next 30 days, but after that the door is closed.
Any existing free accounts will still be free. Just as when the number of users on the free service was reduced from 25 to 10 and any old accounts can still have 25, any current users on the free service will stay free.
This will affect our business model somewhat, as when building websites for our fairly marvellous clients we set them up with a free Google Apps account as standard.
However, we are big believers in the value of Google Apps and the great features it can offer businesses of all sizes. We will continue to wear our Google Authorised badge with pride when offering HDG cloud services for business.
