Demo sites on Flywheel allow you to set up a demonstration of a WordPress site free for up to 14 days, prior to paying for a subscription.
The typical use case for demo sites is handling final delivery of client sites when you want your client to pay for the hosting.
For example, you can develop a WordPress site locally (we recommend our app Local — it’s free, fast and super functional), then migrate it to a demo site on Flywheel for your client’s approval. When you’re ready, you can transfer billing to your client. Easy!
Demo sites are equivalent in resources to the Tiny Plan (for a description of plans on Flywheel, see our pricing page). They are optimized for low traffic and a modest amount of disk space, but otherwise have the same caching, same version of PHP, and same overall setup.
Currently we are not able to provision additional resources to the free demo sites for testing.
If you would like to get a feel for how your site would perform under a heavier load than the demo site allows, we recommend contacting one of our product specialists.
