At CourseSales.com we understand that smooth running of your registration and online course delivery is important. Having your LMS or student management system down means lost revenue. LMS like Moodle are very resource intensive, for this reason we encourage dedicated servers located close to a fast and secure ‘backbone’ internet connection. By using CourseSales.com Moodle servers you will be located on the same network as us - so the network connection between the two applications is fast. We will also manage nightly backups. Updates to your dedicated server can be synchronised with CourseSales.com so that they stay working. We do NOT host dedicated Moodle servers for customers who are not using CourseSales.com. We provide free email support for those wishing to follow our support documentation
