Evaluate GOV.UK PaaS
If you’re considering cloud-based solutions for your web app, GOV.UK PaaS offers a trial period with a set of basic features and a capped quota of compute and storage. Keep in mind that you can’t use the trial version of the platform for production or live services.
Check the features
Request a trial account
When you request an account you can invite as many team members as you need and choose the ones who’ll be in charge of managing users. They’ll be able to request more user accounts, including ones for external suppliers, and assign roles and permissions.
If you already have an account please refer to our Start using GOV.UK PaaS page.
Push your first app
Once we set up your account and you have installed the Cloud Foundry CLI, you can access GOV.UK PaaS, set a password and start using the platform straight away. Our quick setup guide will help you deploy a static site to test your connection and then push some sample code, use the marketplace to request backing services like databases, and set up multiple environments and a development pipeline.
Support in trial mode
