RAFAC.UK is a web hosting provider established by RAF Air Cadets volunteers with the aim of providing the best possible website hosting services and associated services to the RAF Air Cadets (RAFAC).

1265websiteWe believe that every part of the RAFAC should have access to at least basic website hosting provision. A good website can prove to be an invaluable tool when seeking to recruit new cadets and staff. Working to achieve our core aim and beliefs we have established a website hosting service that provides basic none time limited provision free of charge to all parts of the RAFAC.

The RAFAC.UK service offers the very latest in hosting technology with few limitations. We're also on hand to give you a little help to get started should you need it. We understand that most staff arn't website specialists and aim to provide you with all the support you need to get your Squadron, Wing, Region or project online.

As the world becomes an increasingly digital environment it's important that the RAFAC isn't left behind. We would ask you to be aware that none of the services we offer are designed to replace any elements of Project BADER which is efficiently managed by HQAC. They are instead designed to complement existing resources and provide units with the tools they need to get online.

Benefits Overview

There are plenty of benefits to joining RAFAC.UK including:

Free Packages

We have a good range of free packages available that have a a good range of features that make it easy for your unit to get online. Saving money on website hosting means that the much needed funds your Trustee Board raise can be used to finance other activities. We expect that for most of our users the free packages will provide everything they need. For those units that want a comprehensive service enhanced packages are available at reasonable rates.

Universal Brand

All RAFAC.UK hosting accounts are created with a subdomain which ensures that all primary addresses follow the same pattern, for example http://horncastle.rafac.uk or https://trent.rafac.uk. This makes it easy for users at one location to guess the web address of another but also provides a consistent brand image to the general public.

Universal Email Provision

Each member of staff is also provided with a personalised email address that follows the format This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., mailboxes are initially limited to 1GB in size but can be increased on request by raising a request with our support team.

As with BADER email accounts our email service uses a standard email address format, for example, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. which makes it easy for users to guess the email addresses of staff within other units.

There is no limit to the amount of staff email accounts that can be requested.

Specialist Staff

The RAFAC.UK team includes RAF Air Cadets volunteers who understand the needs of Air Cadet units and have the best interests of the RAFAC at heart.
