You cannot create a sandbox from existing developer org. But you can create a sandbox from an existing production org. Also, you can create a developer sandbox box from the production org. By default you can create a developer sandbox which is free one. The other sandboxes which are developer pro involves a cost.

Usually developer org used to create managed and unmanaged packages separately. whereas Sandboxes used to create enhancements like trigger, vf pages, components, crm modules in sandboxes and push the changes to production.

  • if i signup for production org that also involve some cost or getting a production org is free ?? May 2, 2014 at 14:09
  • yes, if you signup for production org definitely that would involve cost based on how many user licenses and type of it. But if you have a production org of your own then you would get a sandbox free.

  • @MnZ if we purchase a production org say for example, an enterprise edition then a dev sandbox is free if i recall correctly.
