Rob from RPI writes "As a bit of a shock announcement, if you didn't already have your free Google Apps domain hosted with google before now, it's too late. I just received an email saying — basically — 'if you want to create more domains, then it's too late. Pay up'. Reading the google help page http://support.google.com/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en-us&answer=2855120 gives you a good overview.

If you wish to use Google Apps, you now have to pay $50/user/year. Otherwise you're stuck with a gmail address for all your users.

This comes after Google shrunk the free number of users from 50 to 10 in 2010. I know that I was convinced to move our email to the paid version by messing around with it, but I doubt many more people will be done this in the future.

So, Google — what WERE you thinking?"
