LMS Hosting For WordPress That’s Scalable, Fast, and Secure

Get a robust WordPress solution that’s optimized for your learning management system. While we host your LMS, you’ll be free to focus on creating new learning experiences, whether you’re an educational institution, a company that offers employee training courses, or an independent educator.

Powerful Tech Stack (and No Configuration)

Get hosted on an isolated container for high performance and reliability for your logged-in students. We use the same Google Cloud Platform infrastructure that powers demanding sites like Google Search, Gmail, and YouTube.

Plenty of Dedicated Resources

The capacity for handling multiple concurrent requests on your site is determined by the allocated server resources. This is key for LMS with lots of uncached server requests and logged-in users. We help you configure exactly what you’ll need.

The Best Tools for Your LMS

Utilize our APM tool, PHP version switching, staging, automatic database optimization, and optional Redis object cache.

Free Premium Migration

Our team of migration experts will work with you to schedule a migration that minimizes downtime. We’ll do the work.
