Moodle™ is a Professional Course Management System
Moodle™ is a free and open-source learning management system (LMS) designed to help educators create effective online courses based on sound pedagogical principles. It is usually used for blended learning, distance education, flipped classrooms, and other e-learning projects in schools, universities, workplaces, and other sectors.
Moodle™ is built on the Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP (LAMP) stack, so you need to install it in that environment. The process can be quite complex. If you want to make things easy, you can start with a Cloud Clusters Moodle™ hosting plan. Our one-click installation will get you moodle ready in minutes.

Plugins enhance the functionality of Moodle by adding additional features written in PHP

Language packs help tutors to provide courses in their learners’ local languages

Moodle is open source so you can alter its underlying code.

What Do You Need to Consider to Use Moodle™ Well?
Capacity
The first consideration is capacity. How many students will visit and use your website concurrently?
Without a good host, Moodle can run very slowly and bring a bad user experience to your students.
So ensure that your host can accommodate users on your site even during peak hours.
Control Panel and Compression
Select the host that provides the control panel,through which you can compress files of 20 megabytes or more. If you decide to do so, it will make it easier for you to switch hosts in the future.
Also, make sure that your moodledata folder is not stored in a public folder for future migration.
If all this seems a little confusing or needs to be tracked a lot, look for a host that provides dedicated Moodle hosting.
Host and Moodle Compatibility
Next, check which version of Moodle you will use. All versions of Moodle work best in standard Linux, Apache, mysql, and PHP or lamp infrastructures.
Check whether your host provider not only provides lamp, but also updates it regularly to keep up with the new versions of these components and the CMS you will use.
