pls I need to host moodle for my faculty and it has about 2000 students and several courses, What are the recommended we host that can be relied upon to handle this. thanks.
The starting point should be http://docs.moodle.org/22/en/Performance_FAQ#What_hosting_provider_do_you_recommend.3F.
Then there are other recent discussions in this forum:
- "Looking for cheapy host that can support 2.2" http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=193821
- "Looking for a web hosting for moodle. Any recommendation?" http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=62484
You can run the "Using Moodle 'advanced search facility'" mentioned in the introduction to
this forum to find more.
The FAQ I've linked, http://docs.moodle.org/en/Performance_FAQ#What_hosting_provider_do_you_recommend.3F, mentions Moodle Partners. You
are welcome to extend the text. I'm not going to update it, not in four versions!
Before you look for what is called a "cheap" host, make sure you understand what the requirements in terms of usage are. Most cheap hosts will put your moodle installation on a shared server where you share the hardware with many (sometimes hundreds) of other websites.
Because Moodle is a serious learning environment it needs some prerequsites to be met. One being a hardware capable of serving all user requests. If you have 2000 potential users for your moodle site do not even think to start with a "cheap" hoster, it will be a certain failure.
However, if you are serious I can provide you with help on the topic If you send me a private mail as I do not want to discuss such things in an open forum.

All the best
