The Kootenay Internet Communications Society was formed in 1997 with the primary purpose of helping individuals and non-profits get online. The Board now feel that KICS has served its purpose and the decision has been made to dissolve the Society.
As KICS hosts web sites for commercial and non-profit individuals/organizations, these web sites will need to be migrated to another web host.
Red e Technology’s principal, Stevland Ambrose, has been a KICS Board member for over 10 years. He has agreed to host the web sites belonging to KICS clients for the same terms that they’ve had in the past.
Web hosting for clients migrating from KICS will continue to be the same price… $10/month for commercial clients (payable yearly), and $25/ year for non-profit organizations if they can afford it plus a one-time setup fee of $20. We will assist you in migrating your site and we’ll do our very best to minimize technical issues and service interruptions.
NOTE: A few non-profit KICS clients do not have their own domain names. If the URL for your website looks like this:
then you will need your own domain name to move forward.
Red e Technology offers web hosting that far surpasses the needs of most web site owners. If you require more than the following package, please let us know.
If you already have a domain name, we can help you point it to your new web host.
If you don’t have a domain name, we can assist you with that as well.***

There are many popular American cloud storage services, such as Dropbox and Google, but a lot of our clients cannot use them.
That is because, under the U.S. Patriot Act, the American Federal government (the Pentagon, CIA, FBI, etc.) has the ability to issue a ‘National Security Letter’ demanding a company’s data. The service provider itself is legally “gagged” and cannot even acknowledge that they’ve received such an order.
If keeping your data private is critical, not only should one not store sensitive data in the U.S., one should avoid using any American cloud provider—even if their storage facilities are located outside of the U.S.!
You can, however, trust a Canadian service provider that stores your data in Canada. Not only is your data encrypted using AES-256 encryption, we will never turn your data over to any third-party without your consent!
