Your first project

The best way to understand a tool is to use it. We believe that the best marketing we can offer for Platform.sh is to let you try it out, which is why we offer a free one month trial.

To begin, create a new free trial account.

  • Sign up with a new user and password or login using an existing GitHub, Bitbucket, or Google account. If you use a 3rd party login you will be able to set a password for your Platform.sh account later.
  • Select the region of the world where your site should live.
  • Select one of the pre-made project templates or bring your own code.

The video below shows how to setup your own initial project using the Silex PHP microframework.
