Just got the e-mail from GMail where I host few of my remaining domains on their G-Suite product.
Contemplating what to do next
a] pay and upgrade to Google Workspace is not a option!
b] move to MIAB? Anyone done it?
G Suite is becoming Google Workspace.
We are writing to let you know that your G Suite legacy free edition will no longer be available starting July 1, 2022. To maintain your services and accounts, you need to upgrade to Google Workspace.
We launched our G Suite legacy free edition —the original Google Apps offering for businesses and schools— 16 years ago. In 2012 we [discontinued this service] and we will now transition all remaining users to an upgraded Google Workspace paid subscription based on your usage.
In 2020, we introduced —Google Workspace— and tailored our offerings to provide more options to fit our customers’ needs. Google Workspace includes all the features you already use, plus several new capabilities including more storage, increased security, 24/7 support, and more.
Upgrading from your G Suite legacy free edition to Google Workspace will only take you a few short steps and is not disruptive to your end-users. To support you in this transition, you will have discount options for 12 months after July 1, 2022.
To avoid disruption and maintain your account(s), please upgrade to Google Workspace by May 1, 2022. Begin the upgrade by reviewing the [transition] help center article, and selecting the option that best suits your organization’s needs. When you’ve identified your preferred subscription:
- Go to your [Admin console]
- Select your new subscription offering.
- Enter your billing information.
Once you’re upgraded, you can use your new Google Workspace subscription and functionality at no-cost until at least July 1, 2022.
If you take no action by May 1, 2022, Google will begin upgrading your organization seamlessly to a new Google Workspace subscription. The new subscription will be based on what you currently use with your G Suite legacy free edition.
If you do not enter your billing details before July 1, 2022, your subscription will be [suspended].
If your needs have changed and you do not want to upgrade to a Google Workspace subscription, you can [export your organization’s data] with the takeout feature.
Visit the help center for information on the [G Suite legacy free edition] to Google Workspace transition.
If you have questions or need assistance, please [Contact Google Workspace support] When you call or submit your support case, reference issue number xxxxxxxxx. If you have trouble accessing your administrator account, please refer to instructions [to reset your administrator password.]
Thanks for choosing Google Workspace.
