Test Domains and Hosting for HS Students

I am a HS teacher in Wisconsin and I am hoping to have students create websites for local activities and businesses. I already have a Dreamhost account and primarily use Wordpress installs when I work on freelance projects. I wanted to know what the best way to have students work on a test domain and potentially have the option to upload plain HTML and CSS files. Eventually we would use Wordpress installs as well. I am hoping to avoid having an additional hosting cost but to also have students see their website in action.

Thank you in advance!

You can add as many users as you require in the DreamHost Panel.
Panel → FTP & SSH Users → Manage Users

For the websites you can add (free) dreamhoster subdomains in the form of [user].dreamhosters.com.
Panel → Domains → Manage Domains
