Free Moodle Hosting!!

KeytoSchool provides FREE Moodle Hosting. Once you have registered, you will have a unique domain name, 2.5 Gb of storage and 50 Gb of bandwidth. You can also:
  • enrol up to 1000 users
  • upload files up to 32Mb - standard for many Moodle installations
  • choose from a wide selection of themes and personalise them for your school
  • ftp directly
While you have access to all the resources you upload, there are certain restrictions in place. You can make your own backups of the resources, but you can't add your extra modules or plugins. Even so, you can request for a module/plugin to be added, and if this can be accomplished easily, it is usually carried out very quickly. You can't add your own template and, although you can add your school badge, you can't amend it in any other way. These restrictions are minimal and don't interfere with the day to day operation of the vle.

It all does seem too good to be true, but I have set up an account with them and everything has been running smoothly so far. The discussions in the Moodle forums, although initially suspicious, have been very positive.

If you sign up, let me know how you get on.
