Fast Web Hosting

We operate on a cloud platform using Dell Hardware and OnAPP to provide the best possible user experience whilst maintaining the best level of performance and uptime that's hard to rival. To ensure your site performs at its best we use Varnish and APC technologies.

The amount of super fast SSD hosting space provided as part of each free package depends on the type of package you select. The unlimited packages include unlimited SSD hosting space. All packages include full FTP access so you can upload your own website built in HTML, PHP, JavaScript, etc.

All our packages are fully scalable so they can grow as you do. You can start with the free package and upgrade to the unlimited package at a later stage if you want to. Prior to the advent of the cloud platform unlimited hosting was limited by the size of the physical server on which it was based. Our cloud based platform ensures that our unlimited packages are truly unlimited.

Domains

Both our free and unlimited packages come with a RAFAC.UK branded subdomain which helps to ensure consistency of brand. Subdomains are formatted as http://yoursquadronlocation.rafac.uk, for example, the subdomain for 1265 (Horncastle) Squadon is http://horncastle.rafac.uk

Both package types also allow you to host your own personalised domain (such as http://horncastleaircadets.uk). The free package allows you to add one personalised domain, the unlimited package allows you to add as many personalised domains as you need.

Hosted Email Service

All our packages include our fully spam protected mailboxes with no limits on attachment sizes or storage space.

As part of all our packages we provide 1GB mailboxes to each member of staff with a personalised email address, for example, John Smith volunteering at 1265 (Horncastle) Squadron would be allocated This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Additionally, we setup role specific email addresses for each unit, for example This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

For example, John Smith would access the GroupOffice service using his personal This email address is being protected from spambots.
