I'm currently building a Moodle site for teachers who use an English Conversation textbook called "Conversations in Class¨(from Alma Publishing; http://www.almalang.com/textbook_CiC.html). The Moodle site will be hosted (in most cases) by the publisher, to solve the problem of teachers who don't have a Moodle server at their university, or technical support.
The site will probably be provided free of charge to teachers, so we can't afford expensive providers. After looking on the internet I found that American providers are way cheaper than their Japanese counterparts, so I have some questions:
- Our site will be almost exclusively used in Japan. Is it a problem if the provider is in America? Have some of you tested this configuration ?
- What do you think of Bluehost and Alpha one ?
Bluehost is very cheap and very big. They also have a very easy way to install Moodle on their server. Is it fast and responsive ? Alpha one seems to be specialized on Moodle and is not expensive.
- Do you know of a Japanese hosting provider which would be reliable and cheap? Our site could grow quite big and we need a good quality solution. But there is that budget limit. It indeed sounds like asking for the impossible.
Thanks for all your comments and advice.
Using an American web hosting provider from Japan?
