Best Alternative to Google Apps in 2013

I love google apps free package and using it on all my domains for a long time. But, one day a mail came from google apps webmaster stating that they have shut down google apps free plan from now and no more registration are allowed on that free plan. Huge shock from google. If you are new let me tell you that google apps have a free plan earlier by which you can create custom domain name like [email protected] and some more features like google calendar, google docs and now all these services shuts alternative to google apps

They also announced on their blog about taking away their free plan of google apps. It’s really disappointing for me and for all those blogger who do not have much money to buy their 5$/month/user service. Most of the people (including me) do not like the web hosting mail service as they are also not free and does not offer much features. There starts the search for alternative to google apps

But as there is problem then it’s also have solution and here come google apps alternative. I have gone through a deep search and found some more like that. Hope you will like them.
