IMPORTANT: hosting services are being discontinued
The Kootenay Internet Communications Society (KICS) has decided to stop providing web hosting and email services. There are now many comparable web hosts available, and we lack the volunteer power to maintain our service effectively.
As KICS hosts web sites for commercial and non-profit individuals/organizations, these web sites will need to be migrated to another web host by November 1st, 2015.
If you have a web site hosted with KICS
There are many options for selecting a new web host.
Stevland Ambrose, a KICS Board member for over 10 years, has offered to host the websites belonging to KICS clients for the same terms that they have had in the past. Stevland is the owner of Red e Technology, a Nelson-based IT support service that provides web hosting.
You can find more information and assistance for people looking to migrate from KICS on the Red e Technology website.
Whichever route you decide upon, your new host will assist you in migrating your site.
Please do not send any further payments. Any cheques that have been received in 2015, and any subsequent cheques that we receive, will be destroyed. If you have made a payment through PayPal in 2015, we will be issuing a refund to you. You may also contact us in regards to this.
PLEASE TAKE ACTION SOON
If you or your organization feel that you cannot migrate your web site to another web host by November 1st, please let us know.
If you wish to proceed, or if you have any questions, open a support ticket and/ or call Stevland Ambrose at 250 352-0911.
We would like to thank the community for many years of support!
The 2015 KICS AGM will be held on November 17th at 6:00 PM at the Hume Hotel's General Store Family Restaurant in Nelson.
