Local host or hosting for test?

Local host or hosting for test?

I would like to start using Magento to build a demo of my web portal, which is an intermediate platform or an Aliexpress-type market.
Can I do this from the local host or do I need a hosting for what extensions and themes work and if necessary to customize them?


Re: Local host or hosting for test?

You can setup a local environment in your computer if you know how to set everything up and have time to do so.

If you want to get things up for testing fast, going with an inexpensive Magento focused hosting service will be much easier and you don't have to worry about any incompatibilities or any additional setup.
