Which one best moodle 2.8 version hosting server ?
Visvanath, I see that you commonly reject GoDaddy by providing a link to discussion that is several years old. In a way, this is like someone rejecting Moodle because of some features that Moodle lacks in version 1.9.
GoDaddy has updated its hosted servers (at least a year ago.) My experimental GoDaddy hosted server has php 5.5.20 and mySQL 5.5.41 on it, certainly adequate for the latest version of moodle. I have a copy of Moodle 2.8.5+ (Build: 20150424) running on my hosted server. This is a goDaddy "Deluxe" LINUX server, which cost me only $107 US for 2 years, which is less than $5/month. Performance is as expected for a hosted server, sometimes fast and sometimes slow.
What GoDaddy does not offer is much application support for Moodle (and most other web applications.) They are a "server" company, not an application company, and certainly they are not a Moodle support company. So for those who want to use GoDaddy to host a Moodle site, you are pretty much on your own. But as you know, this is the case for many of these low-cost hosted server companies.
I don't work for GoDaddy so I don't have any financial connection to them, but I have used them for many years. My production Moodle is on one of their VPSs, and uptime has been excellent. My experience is that GoDaddy seems to know how to keep their servers running. Having said all of this, I am always keeping my eyes open for better solutions.
Right, I run my own campaign against GoDaddy:
"Go Daddy! (Where to?)" https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=193106
Now let's look at the reasons and your objections, one by one.
Well, before diving in to real details, in this particular thread, you missed to notice the pun. (Is there something called the "best moodle hosting server in the world"?)
- About the age of my objections: Read that thread carefully. My objections are not technological, rather ideological. So there is no easy way for them to "undo" it.
- I marvel at your continuous support for GoDaddy customers. But why? We all meet here around a great piece of Free Software. And Moodle is famous for its supportive community. But why give free support to a big commercial enterprise which has nothing to do with Moodle? (Paid work is OK, if it is transparent. But you said, you are not getting paid.)
All that said, I will be positively surprised, if my (free) word has a say over the big advertising budget of GoDaddy!
Visvanath, now I better understand that you are not against anything technically wrong with GoDaddy, but instead are ideological.Sometimes the threads on the posts that you direct folks to are implying a technical issue.
Yes, GoDaddy is a big company, and their Super Bowl ads don't really say much.If one is opposed to paying for products from a big company, then just avoid these (like Apple, Microsoft, Dell, HP, Ford, Toyota, etc.)
For several years, GoDaddy's hosted servers were not configured to run the latest versions of Moodle, but now they are.
GoDaddy offers some of the most aggressive pricing for their hosted servers, and VPSs.They do not provide any false claims about their (lack of) support for Moodle.Their business is servers, not applications (unless you are willing to pay more.)They seem to run solid servers, and I have had good success running my Moodle on a goDaddy VPS.
Running free products like moodle on low-cost servers can be challenging.One gets what they pay for. I would like to find a server company that can provide moodle, and great technical installation and support for it, for under $40 US per month.I haven't found one, yet. Yes, I can pay more than what I pay for GoDaddy, and then consider the extra payment as supporting moodle. I could pay a lot more and go with a Moodle Partner, too.
The latest versions of Moodle run on GoDaddy servers. If someone needs some help, I am simply trying to provide my (limited) experience. If they choose some other server company, I still try to provide my ideas, when I think my ideas can help.

We mostly use Amazon EC2 instances (Ubuntu Linux) that works pretty well. You don't get cPanel and all that nonsense but the command line is good for you
