You really should try launch.joomla.org, 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 launch.joomla.org is a great option.
This is the official hosting site of the Joomla project. That's why you will get a .joomla.com address when you sign up.
Here are some key things to know about the demo site:
- This hosting is provided in partnership with CloudAccess.net 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.
