Key To School (free Moodle Hosting) http://www.keytoschool.com/ Key To School
At Key To School (KTS), we believe that Moodle is indeed a gift to all educators. However, it was observed that setting up and maintaining a Moodle server was an uphill task for many educators, not made easy by the restrictions imposed by many non-managed hosting providers.
Just because it is free does not mean that you have to settle for space and bandwidth quotas restricting your site to a prototype site.
We strive to put generous diskspace and bandwidth quota so that you can carry out actual teaching and our "no ads policy" and beautiful world class themes create an undistracted pleasant experience for your students.
