Warning deprecated plugin

This plugin is deprecated and cannot be purchased.

If you are using it, don't worry: we will continue to provide updates and support to all customer with an active license.

Make your customers feel like they are the protagonist of a unique experience making them become admins in your live demo instantly!

Do you develop and sell plugins or themes for WordPress?

If the answer is yes, then you must have noticed how important it is to let your customers try them out online and that this generates many issues for you to solve.

I know you are thinking that a video tutorial would fix this, but you might not be considering the great disadvantage of not being able to let customers test your products or see all of the options your product grants.

Do you know what customers want before purchasing? They want to be able to try the products for themselves! They want to test the administration panel, see the effect produced by every single option in the frontend area, they want to see if the product functions can satisfy their needs in order to feel safe when they purchase.
That’s what they want!

We developed the best WordPress plugin to create sandbox environments and online test environments for WordPress themes and plugins, so that you can offer your customers the chance to try out a live demo with exclusive access.

Your customers will be able to test all of the functions offered by your product in a simple and quick way, and they will do so using a dedicated access that will grant them exclusive admin rights.

This will allow you to get rid of those annoying refund requests due to initial misunderstandings about how your product works.

Our YITH WordPress Test Environment automatically generates a cloned instance of your live demo, to do so it uses your customer’s IP to instantly request for it and grant them access.
This clone, after a given amount of time, which you will be able to decide yourself, will be automatically deleted leaving behind no trace whatsoever, not even from the files uploaded on your server by customers.

And what if multiple users attempt to use your online demo?

Imagine having 25 to 40 people simultaneously trying to test your online demo.
They would all attempt to save their own settings without success, they would keep overwriting themselves resulting in an unsatisfactory and frustrating customer experience.

Clearly, you would close a live demo like that right away, right?
From this moment onward you can allow your customers to appreciate your themes and plugins the best possible way.

    Very strong but...The tool itself is very strong. The only down part for me is that it's not possible to use it on multi-site environments.

    More than happy with itI used to have customers asking for free trials all the time, now that they can have their own demos it's that much easier for them to decide if they want to purchase or not. I'm not giving it 5 stars because I think the price could be a bit lower but I'm more than happy with this plugin.

Here you can find some frequently asked questions about this plugin. If you can't find a reply to your doubts, ask a question: we will reply in a very short time

Will this work on single site instances?

No, it requires a multi-site installation to work.

Can the admin be notified when someone opens a live demo?

No, this is not possible, there is no notification whenever a new sandbox is created.

How will a user get access to the demo?

Your users will be able to click on a button that will create a copy of the demo website (a sandbox) where they can edit the plugin settings as they prefer; the sandbox will expire after a certain amount of time, that you specify in the plugin settings. There is no need for default passwords.

Is it safe to use, so users cannot hack into the server the site is installed on?

Yes it is safe, consider that we also use it on our website.

Can you allow users to install their plugins and themes to test?

No, only the super admin can do that. However the user will be able to activate all the plugins/themes that are already installed within the test environment.

Can't find the answer?
