With Shifter there is no need to install or update WordPress before using it and your site is fast, secure, and always available for your visitors, even in high traffic instances.

Getting started with your free trial

Getting started with Shifter is simple, you can get started in 3 easy steps.

1: Click any of the “Get Started For Free” or “Try Shifter For Free” buttons available across the site.

2: Input your information (email, desired username, and password)

Note: if your desired username is already in use you will see this warning and will need to enter your information again. This will also happen if your password is not in the correct format, so be sure to set one with both letters and numbers.

This will be your login information, be sure to make a note of it for later. After you have entered all of the information with no errors you will be asked for a verification code that will be delivered to the email address you used to register.

3: When you receive your confirmation email you can enter the code into the previous window or follow the provided link to activate your trial.

Use your newly created username and password to sign in and begin creating your first site. Your free trial will be valid for 7 days once you create your site. After those 7 days your site will be automatically deleted but you can repeat the trial as many times as you would like. 

If you would like to keep the site and prevent auto deletion after the trial period ends simply, add your payment card information to your account prior to the end of your trial. The site is still available for free once you add your payment information but you can also upgrade your account to a paid plan to take advantage of a greater number of Shifter’s features.
