It is a business... You were getting something for free. Now if you want it you have to pay $20 per YEAR. Not really a huge cost in my opinion. If you really need to use it you get a single address for free, or you pay for more. I havent had the need for it in years since comcast gives me the same ip for years at a time and when it changes I just login to gmail and go to the bottom and click "Details" and it shows me all the ips that I have logged in with and one of them is my home machine.
