Demo sites are equivalent in resources to the “Tiny Plan” servers (for a description of plans on Flywheel, see the help article: Which Flywheel plan is right for me?). They are optimized for low traffic and a modest amount of disk space, but otherwise have an identical configuration to all production sites on Flywheel. They have the same caching, same version of PHP, and same overall setup.
If you would like to get a feel for how your demo site would perform under a heavier load than the Tiny Plan allows, we recommend paying for your site and selecting the larger plan. Your site can still remain password protected by Privacy Mode (see the article Why are my sites password protected? for more info), but will have the full resources allocated to sites on the larger plan. At this time we are not able to provision additional resources to the free demo sites for testing.
If you have any questions about demo sites or their configuration, you can always contact Flywheel support and we’d be happy to answer any questions.
