Got a great tip last night from the developer at BMoreCreative inc. He was having issues installing a Beta version of Joomla 4 for development purposes. Then he discovered Joomla.com not .org.
I decided to give it a try myself. It was super easy. I provided an email address and what I want the site to be called. Received an email with the activation link, created a password, and I had a “mysite.joomla.com” hosting, cpanel package ready for me in seconds.
It installed a 3.8 site but they provided me with a CPanel so I plan to upgrade to Joomla 4 to get ready for when it becomes the main distribution.
I hope this helps someone else out there….
