Follow this guide to create an account and deploy a sample app in your own free sandbox.
Get trial access and a free sandbox space
Federal employees and contractors with an email ending in .mil, .gov, or .fed.us can obtain a free sandbox space. To register, you’ll need access to your email and a smartphone with an authenticator app installed (for example, 1password, Microsoft Authenticator, or Authy).
Go build in your sandbox
Follow any of the tutorials to launch your own web application from your sandbox. You’ll need your cloud.gov account and some familiarity with Windows Powershell or Mac/Linux terminal. Learn more about sandbox spaces and sandbox limitations.
We also have video tutorials on an overview of the cloud.gov platform, a walk through of the initial registration process, and a hands-on workshop on how to start running applications.
Upgrade to a paid package to get full access to the platform and permanent spaces for hosting longer term demos and web applications in production. Email us at email@example.com to learn more about what cloud.gov can do.
