For the first six years of the service's life, the basic tier allowed you to create a custom domain account for free.

Now, you have to pay for the privilege of using a custom domain with a Google account.

Google turned off the ability to create these accounts for free in 2012, but it wouldn't take away accounts from existing users, would it.

December economic data showed further weakening in consumption and the property sector, both major growth drivers.
