Sandbox is the copy of production org. It is used to write code, test the code and on confirm migrate it to your production org.


Please refer below posts.







Hope this helps.






As you know salesforce have difference Org like Production, Enterprise and Development etc. You can’t code inside the production org because you don’t have right to coding inside this org. Hence for these Org Salesforce is providing the Sandbox where you can Code and finally deploy your code from Sandbox to production. For more go through the link below:

The Sandbox environment is an exact copy of your salesforce.com instance (production) which can be used to develop in. You can't develop directly on production org. You first need to develop your code in sandbox and then you can deploy it to production using change set, eclipse, package etc..


There are three type of sandbox : Configuration-Only Sandbox , Developer sandbox , Full sandbox (aka full-copy sandbox). To know more about it please visit : http://www.salesforce.com/platform/cloud-infrastructure/sandbox.jsp
