    Free Joomla webhost (temp)

    A teacher wants a very basic site created so I said i'd create one quickly so they have an idea of what it'd look like.

    I just need to find a free host (even if 30days) that'll auto create a joomla install and that I don't need to wait weeks for!

    So far from a google search, I have found hosts that don't email authorisation, claim to be free but direct to a non-free host or only offer 35MB of space which is useless!

    Why not run one up on Localhost then if you install Akeeba with it you should have the option to Kickstart it to the destination web host?

    Maybe invest in yourself with some cheap domain name/monthly hosting and charge the teacher a few quid to offset?
    I use one.com.

    WAMP / LAMP (depending on your desktop preference) would allow you to set up a site and show them what it's all about. Joomla's not too hard to install from script (that I remember) ..

    Thanks for the replies - ideally i'd have found a host that allows for an upgrade to a paid service if all is well (and cheap at that).

    In the interim I have chosen to set it up on our internal intranet box, though if all is well i'd still be looking for a more permenant host for her. As specky said I guess i'd have to use akeeba with this approach.
