Google Apps a.k.a G Suite legacy account has always been a point of interest among all webmasters and website owners, as it allows users to have custom branded email id like firstname.lastname@example.org for free of cost. But unfortunately from December 6, 2012, Google has announced a change to Google Apps for Business — ending the free version of the product, offering only its Premium version which costs $50 per user, per year, regardless of the size of the company. The change was announced on Google’s Official Enterprise blog. Existing Google Apps for business users who have free accounts get to carry on without paying the subscription fee but businesses wanting to sign up from now with have to pay.
Google Apps refers to Google’s suite of web-based software services — which includes Gmail webmail and Drive for cloud storage and collaborative documents. Google is still offering individuals free versions of these software products, when they create a Google Account, but businesses no longer have a free option. The remaining Google Apps for Business product was formerly known as the Premium option, and includes 24/7 phone support for any issue, a 15GB inbox, and a 99.9% uptime guarantee with no scheduled downtime.
Google is still offering a free product for schools and universities: Google Apps for Education. It will also be continuing to offer Google Apps for Government for $50 per user, per year.
But this never stopped geeks to find a way around to get a Google Apps legacy or G Suite legacy account. And the golden days are back again. After spending quite a lot of money and time at last I’ve figured out a new loophole in Google’s system using which now we can again swap our primary domain as well as add secondary domain (max 2 including existing secondary domain, if any) as we want. Beside, at gsuitefree.com, we provide G Suite legacy / Google Apps legacy with your domain as primary.
