unlearn what you know about hosting
Moodle exemplifies the open source spirit like no other learning management system. The software is free to download, the code is freely available, and there are plugins galore! With Moodle, you have the freedom to build the learning platform of your dreams!
The challenge, until now though, has been to choose between taking advantage of all of the power and flexibility of Moodle (self-hosting) and the benefits of traditional Moodle hosting.
Don't Choose One . . . Choose Both!
|Engineered design||Full access and full control|
|Security||Your own infrastructure|
|Scalability||Unlimited plugins and customizations|
|Repeatable build||No vendor lock-in|
|System monitoring||No markups (servers, bandwidth, storage)|
|Reliable support from a team of experts||Control support/labor costs|
Welcome to unHosting!
We think you shouldn’t have to choose between the advantages of open source and expert support and design. Our team at My Learning Consultants has developed a set of tools that leverages years of professional Moodle hosting experience in support of the Moodle and the open source way. With this set of tools, we’ve taken everything we don’t love about most traditional hosting services and flipped it on its head.

How does it work?
We have big dreams for unHosting, but for now unHosting is designed to work with your Amazon Web Services account (other platforms to come). unHosting is much more than just another server image though!
unHosting uses Amazon APIs and a scripted install process to produce a Moodle instance complete with load balancers, web and database servers, all tuned to meet your site requirements. With unHosting, we focus on creating repeatable builds that are stable and easy to manage, update, and maintain.
In a nutshell, unHosting:
Deploys production grade services to Amazon Web Services
Deploys with security in mind
Offers daily backups with off-server geographically disperse snapshots
Creates sites from Moodle’s official repository
Creates sites from custom public and private git repositories
Securely installs plugins from the Moodle community database
Automatically updates infrastructure software for web server, php, database, etc.
Automatically applies Moodle bug and security updates
Automatic SSL certificate generation
Safe restoration of backup data to new or staging site
Historical server monitoring from within the AWS console
