How to Delete A Google Apps Account
The Google reach extends far further than many Internet users understand. For website owners, Google offers applications that can be associated with and used for main domains. For instance, if you own a domain or website and you want to create an email account, Google Apps provides a Gmail application that can do just that. You create the email address for your domain, like info @ mywebsite . com and you use Gmail to read and send messages. There are other Google Apps as well that require annual or monthly billing. You need to find out if any of your services are paid services before you delete the Google Apps account.
