    Hi guys,

    I test lots of wp sites time to time so I am looking for a test hosting.

    I need to test each site for a week max .. perhaps 2 weeks. So I am looking for a cost effective churn and burn solution.

    ** Those "pennies for first month" hosting will do as long as I can register one, host and test my site, rinse and repeat.

    ** Is there a host that charge per month, per week or even per day?

    ** Is there a low cost all rounder host that offers different ip for each domain hosted, offers multiple domain host and also provide some sort of IP protection so others cant find out at which hosting I am using?

    If I chose a hosting to host my test sites for a while, I don't want them to be traced back to same hosting, like pbns, but there are temporary sites.

    Thanks :)

    Problem with digital ocean is I'll have to configure each Linux vps install Ubuntu lts then install lamp server set everything up .. I wont mind the work for a long term site .. but these are "max a week" test sites and I don't want to go through all the trouble for them. I would prefer something like c panel to get the job done in minutes.

    Hostgator offers hosting for $0.01 with a discount code for a month, have you tried that?
    Pay $0.01 for a month of hosting and just cancel before the month hits

    Have you considered AWS (Amazon Web Services) cloud for the same. Its super cheap and i can help you set it up on AWS.
    Lets say you want to have 10 webservers with wordpress on all of them. I will create one webserver with all required config, then we will create template of this server...and boom..you can keep launching new servers..with 1 click..which will have wordpress pre-installed. PM me if you interested to know more.

    Apologies, I don't understand the question. You're asking if there's host that would charge per month? Every host do that.

    If you're looking for "per day", your need is similar to someone looking for cheap host for PBNs. Find threads about them here (looking for cheap VPS with different IP)

    If you just need to test website why dont u do that on localhost using wmapp?
    That would cost you $0 and you can "host" as many sites as you want.
