Trial Sites vs Live Sites

Site Performance & Resources

Currently, there are no differences in performance or resources limits between Trial Sites and Live Sites, apart from Trial Sites being idled after 60 minutes of inactivity.
This is done to conserve server resources for inactive Trial Sites. However, Trial Sites will be automatically reactivated upon a new request/visits to the admin or front-end of the site.
(reactivation may take 30-40 seconds before the site loads upon the first visit)

Search Engine Indexing

Trial Sites will automatically enforce disabling from Search Engines by adding no-index meta tags to all pages - irrespective of the 'Show this page for search engines' settings.
This is done to prevent pages being index by search engines while in development.
Once the Trial Site is activated to a Live Site, the 'Show this page for search engines' settings will be honoured and the automatic no-index meta tag insertion removed.

Domain Names

Trial Sites cannot have domain names assigned to them. This is achieved during the activation process (changing a Trial Site to a Live Site).
