Run Large Online Learning Platforms with Ease

ScalaHosting has designed, built and managed a custom multi-cluster solution to host the learning management system (LMS) for the Commission of elections of the Philippines. It featured a fully interactive 3D model of the Vote Counting Machine (VCM) used in the Automated Election System of the Philippines. This allowed hands-on training to be performed at any time without the need for a VCM to be physically present. Due to the scale of resources needed to accommodate a high volume of concurrent users, the LMS needed an enterprise managed hosting solution which could quickly scale up to meet the growing demand and traffic spikes.

On the busiest days, the managed hosting cluster successfully served over 100 million visits.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a Learning Management System?

    A Learning Management System (also referred as eLearning platform) is a software application that serves teachers, schools, and all kinds of educational organizations. LMS apps help you set up courses, tests, and quizzes, configurable reports, custom certificates, and learning materials - all with zero technical expertise. Popular solutions, like the Moodle LMS, can really up your elearning game with magnificent layouts, course automation, and completion progress.

  • What is Moodle hosting?

    Moodle hosting is a type of web hosting service that is specifically optimized for LMS websites. The servers are packed with features that make launching and managing Moodle sites a child’s play. This includes perks such as a one-click Moodle installation, automatic updates, scalable resources, and more.

    Moodle is the largest learning management system (LMS) nowadays, supported by almost all hosting providers.

  • What is the difference between the two Moodle hosting plans?

    The main difference between our Moodle-optimized packages is the web hosting environment. On the Start plan, your Moodle LMS will be hosted on a shared server, while the alternative is a cloud VPS. The latter is much preferred for the educational platform, as it comes with enough resources and customization control to realize any kind of project.

  • What operating system do I need for the Moodle LMS?

    The Moodle code is written in PHP, so any Linux-based operating system will do just fine - whether it is CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, or any of the rest. While it’s not technically impossible to host the app on a Windows server, the configuration and management are much more complicated, so we don’t recommend this option.

  • Shared Moodle hosting vs Moodle Cloud - Which one is best for educational institutions?

    If your project relies heavily on site speed, user experience, and rock-solid security, Moodle Cloud is definitely the right hosting solution. It is the only type of service that can deliver guaranteed & consistent performance, high security, and uninterrupted uptime at all times. On a shared server, your Moodle LMS website will share everything with hundreds of other accounts, which can lead to many disadvantages and growth barriers for your educational project. Learn more in the video below.

  • Which Moodle hosting plan is right for me?

    Once you pick the right hosting solution for your Moodle site – shared or cloud - choosing the actual plan is an easier task. If you are on a mission to grow your website and you choose the Moodle Cloud deal - you can simply check how many site visits you get in a month. If the number is less than 400 000, the Moodle Cloud VPS with 2 CPU cores and 4GB RAM should be sufficient enough. For more visits, you need to add an additional CPU core for every 200 000, ensuring the best possible environment for your Moodle LMS project

  • How much does Moodle Hosting cost?

    As with similar LMS apps, what makes Moodle hosting expensive or cheap is the type of service you choose to host it on. On a shared server, you should expect a price of around $5.95-$9.95/mo, while prices for a good VPS will start at around $29.95/mo. ScalaHosting always recommends a virtual server environment for LMS projects, just so you can be able to guarantee optimal performance and security.

  • Do you offer AWS Moodle hosting?

    ScalaHosting offers you to host your Moodle website on the AWS Cloud platform as well. The hosting service is managed by Scala, so you can focus on building and growing your educational website. The AWS partnership allows us to expand our network with additional data center locations all over the world, including Singapore, Mumbai, London, Frankfurt, Montreal, Virginia, Ohio, Sydney, and more.

  • How do I transfer my Moodle site to ScalaHosting?

    If you already have a working Moodle LMS project with another host, ScalaHosting can help you migrate your data to our servers. We only need the login credentials for your old host, and our Moodle experts will take care of the rest. The process is quick, seamless, involves no downtimes, and comes absolutely free of charge.

  • Will my Moodle site experience downtimes during the migration?

    Absolutely not. Our highly efficient support team will ensure the uninterrupted functionality of your project and that your visitors will not notice anything. The migration is a smooth process which is performed by trained website migration specialists. The whole process is effortless and hassle-free.

  • How long does it take to transfer my Moodle site to ScalaHosting?

Furthermore, as this is a fully managed Moodle service, our experts can assist in every step of the way - server setup, hardware configuration, Moodle installation, backups, and whatever else you need.

  • How long does it take to transfer my Moodle website?

    In 95% of the cases the migration process takes less than 2 hours. The time varies depending on the size of the Moodle website and how much data we need to transfer.

  • Can I upgrade my Moodle hosting plan?

    The Moodle Cloud hosting solution is scalable with flexible resources. You can add more CPU cores, RAM and disk space with a single click and the resources are automatically upgraded within a minute. No need for account upgrades or server migrations - everything with your Moodle LMS project will stay as it is.

  • Can I rely on 24/7 support for my Moodle site?

    Technical support is available 24/7 with ScalaHosting. You can get instant assistance via our live chat, allowing you to talk to a technician in real time.
