Installing requires a lot of System Administration task along side. Like installing Xampp, MySQL, etc. Configuring is lot easier. It is done when you want to use a readily available installed moodle to be configured to your choice of settings. Many free sites provide these type of moodle for free.
For Example refer my site:<a href="https://jra.gnomio.com/" target="_blank" title="https://jra.gnomio.com/">https://jra.gnomio.com/</a>
Configuring and installing Moodle is very easy.
1) Set up OS
2) Set up Webserver with PHP support
3) Set up Database.
We use GIT for our moodle installation and running. It is very easy. In Ubuntu, the LTS have only stable updates available. So, your PHP, Database and Apache are pre tested and are always good to go.
Again, if you are able to afford it, Moodlecloud is a good option. It saves you some trouble. However, it may so happen that some of the more powerful add-ons may not be possible to added.
Free sites may not offer you the quality of service that your users will expect.
Trust this helps.
