Hi, Recently, I have submitted HTML site template on Themeforest and I’m asked to provide demo URL . I have mentioned to reviewer that I don’t have the demo URL and expected to have it hosted on Themeforest server.

I have seen several HTML template demo sites hosted on Themeforest servers then why I’m being asked to provide URL ?

Is it necessary to provide URL to Demo? Do anyone know of any best free hosting where i could upload my files for demo purpose? Thanks Proedayan

Themforest doesn’t host any themes. What you have seen was just an iframe. All authors host their themes themselves ;)

One of the only free hosts I know of is 000webhost but I would recommend you buying hosting as it will be the fastest and most secure option. As the person above has said is you’re seeing iFrames, ThemeForest doesn’t host demos for us.

Open a free Dropbox account, install, go to the Dropbox folder in My Documents (Windows) or ~/user/Dropbox (OS X) > paste your HTML folder in the “Public” folder, right click in index.html > Dropbox > Copy Public Link > http://ivor.bz/A6us done.

Hi! I want to submit HTML site template on Themeforest, but I have a doubt about demo url.

Can I enter as demo url a link to a site hosted on altervista? Will be accepted?

Thanks, Simon :)

Your item can be hosted anywhere as long as people can access it / view it in their browser.

Like Ivor mentioned, file storage services like dropbox or Amazon S3 are great places to host static HTML sites.

But any server that works for the public (as in you can see your template on the internet) will be acceptable for a demo URL for your item.
