Joomla Has an Excellent Demo and Test Site

You really should try, the new demo system for Joomla sites.

In less than 60 seconds, you can create a test site for Joomla 3 and also Joomla 4! This really is the best way to test Joomla.

If you want to test a new extension, or check the progress of Joomla 4, then is a great option. 

This is the official hosting site of the Joomla project. That's why you will get a address when you sign up.

Here are some key things to know about the demo site:

  • This hosting is provided in partnership with and is completely free, so long as you login and click a “renew” button once every 30 days.
  • If you do stay and host your site there, a portion of the proceeds are donated to the Joomla project.
  • There are very few restrictions on what you can do with this site. This is full-featured Joomla website.

How to Sign up at
