If you’ve been considering setting up your own domain but have been hesitating because it can seem like too much of a hassle ‘Google Apps for your Domain‘ may be a solution for you. It lets you quickly setup a website, email, calendar and common address book for your organization. It also provides some basic collaboration tools in the form of a web based word process and spreadsheet.
If your a small organization (family, club, etc.) or you’re an educational institution the service is free. If your a larger organization you can setup up to a more robust package for $50 per user per year. As with most Google applications its seems designed from the ground up to scale.
