Odoo Online

Odoo Online provides private databases which are fully managed and hosted by Odoo. It can be used for long-term production or to test Odoo thoroughly, including customizations that don’t require code.


Odoo Online is incompatible with custom modules or the Odoo App Store.

Odoo Online databases are accessed using any web browser and do not require a local installation.

To quickly try out Odoo, shared demo instances are available. No registration is required, but each instance only lives for a few hours.
