Changes to your Google Apps subscription. Disabled registration for Google Apps Free

    Today I received this kind of letter from Google:

    Starting today, the subscription to new domains has been disabled for the free Google Apps program, and the ability to switch to this version (from paid or trial) will be disabled within 30 days.

    Why are such changes introduced?
    This will allow the Google Apps team to focus on providing a unified service to their customers and resellers with improved service and support.

    Starting today, we're no longer accepting new signups for the free version of Google Apps, and the option to switch to this version will no longer be available after 30 days.

    Why are we making this change?
    Offering Google Apps for Business allows us to focus on one solution that provides you and your customers with better services and support. We believe that this change will also improve and simplify your sales process.

    I think this has long been going on, over the past year there have been quite a few changes in the product (more than 3 years taken together over the past year). Obviously, something was also going to happen in the order of the provision of services. And now you can start using Google Apps only with a 30-day trial period.
