As of December 6, 2012, Google no longer offers new accounts for the free edition of Google Apps. Google Apps free edition is sometimes referred to as “Standard Edition.”

If you already have the free edition, you can continue to use it for free. This change has no impact on existing users of the free edition.

The regular cost of Google Apps for Business is $5/user/month or $50/user/year, which is still a fair deal. However, if you were lucky/smart enough to get Google Apps for your small business before today, you can still keep using it for free!
