A sandbox is a copy of the production environment/ org, used for testing and development purposes. It’s useful because it allows development on Apex programming without disturbing the production environment.

When can you use it?

You can use it when you want to test a newly developed Force.com application or Visualforce page. You can develop and test it in the Sandbox org instead of doing it directly in production.

This way, you can develop the application without any hassle and then migrate the metadata and data (if applicable) to the production environment. Doing this in a non-production environment allows developers to freely test and experiment applications end to end.

Types of Sandboxes are:

Developer

Developer Pro

No, it is not possible to edit apex classes and triggers directly in production environment.

It needs to be done first in Developer edition or testing org or in Sandbox org. Then, to deploy it in production, a user with Author Apex permission must deploy the triggers and classes using deployment tools.

However, Visualforce pages can be created and edited in both sandbox and in production.

Only if the page has to do something unique (different values), it would have to be developed via Sandbox.
