Here is a new thing to test –
Poopy.life. WordPress Test Installs With Poopy.life Free Service is Great to Check Things Before Testing on Own Server, But There are Free PaaS Services. We are not criticising in negative way the effort of the developers, particularly as they use dedicated servers as infrastructure (not another Amazon hosted service), it is really smooth and worked similar test installation services for their products, namely Oxygen and WP All Import for many years.

What Are the Features and Limitations of WordPress Test Installs?
Normally we also suggest to use some easy to use PaaS with few click installation of WordPress with free usage tier like Red Hat OpenShift. Localhost development has limitations at present plus when there is chance of getting various malware, it is safe.
The service developer pointed out practical situations for usage of their service for :
- Building a copy of a site with dummy data in 3sec to test something in isolation
- Testing things that require communication with remote servers
- Situations requiring a clean WordPress install that doesn’t need to stick around
In the same way limitations are pointed out too :
- Showing work to a client
- Reproducing a bug and sending to a dev
- Being an end user and getting a demo of a product
Why Not Free PaaS WordPress Test Installs?
Possibly there are frontend, theme, plugin developers who need huge number of test installs for checking too much original things. Red Hat OpenShift WordPress is not new – we published the linked article 5 years back.
Poopy.life like service is also great to ask or answer some questions on Q&A sites – somewhat like we do with Pastebin or Github Gist for snippets.
