response from the Google Apps Team saying that you need to have the
"Next generation" control panel activated for "Start page" and "Docs &

activated you still can see the option for "start page" but you can't
Steps to change control panel:
1. Log into your account and go to "Manage this domain".
2. Go to "Domain settings" (it's under "Services").
3. Go to "Advanced settings" and click on "Edit"

generation" control panel, select it.
5. Click on "Save Changes
After you should be able to activate the Start page.
