Our Connection with the U3A
U3A National Office and Cloudstock -
- Between September 2018 and January 2020, Cloudstock director James Coote, worked at the U3A National Office in London working as the IT Support and Infrastructure Officer, looking after the National Offices PC’s and IT infrastructure along with answering technincal enquiries from U3A members. So there may be the chance that we may have previously spoken over the phone if you have ever had to call the National Office.
- In this role, one of the most frequent technical questions asked was how can my U3A have its own web and email addresses, for example www.myU3A.org.uk and an email address such as secretary@myU3A.org.uk?
Most people nowadays agree that an organisation or company has to have a web or email addresses which gives the organisation a presence and online identity as this is what is now expected.
We are not trying to steer you away for your current U3A SiteBuilder website as we know how reliable and dependable SiteBuilder is and how it is supported by a dedicated team of U3A volunteers who certainly know their stuff.
What can we offer your U3A?
Your U3A will have access to your own dedicated ‘control panel’ for where you will have –
- Full control on creating and routing email addresses, full documentation provided in plain English and we are happy to assist.

Guide Prices for one years web/email domain registration – myU3A.org.uk £5 p/a, myU3A.co.uk £10 p/a, myU3A.com £10 p/a or if you already have your own domain name we can transfer it onto our servers.
