Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Web Hosts.

Note: This article is a work in progress. Please use the page comments or an appropriate moodle.org forum for any recommendations/suggestions for improvement.

A host is service where a Moodle site is located and can be accessed. A web host refers to a service that allows a Moodle site to be reached via the internet. This page will focus upon commercial web hosting services. However larger organizations, such as a university or college can also be a web host. A Localhost (see Complete install packages) is a service run on a computer that can not be reached by anyone on the internet.

The intent here is to invite those who have experience with various web hosting firms to provide data on their experience so as to provide an easy comparison among web hosting firms.

Additional materials regarding pointers for selecting a web host are being developed here.
