Site Info

The internet domain and mail domain have been a part of Fort St. James since 1999. Area250 assumed hosting of these domains in 2014 along with, .net, .org and .info and all redirect to to maintain continuity and email service for local residents. Area 250 continues to provide promotion of this town and area, now and in the future.

New for 2022: Affordable ads for local businesses only. For as little as $50 per year, you can have a more visible ad on any page of this site that is not affected by adblocker software on viewer’s browsers, like the Area250 and grocery ads on the Home page.

The site is privately run and not publicly funded, the Google ads you may see provide partial funding towards hosting costs. I do not make money hosting or updating this site, it is sort of a hobby to keep me sharp at what I’ve been doing for 25 years or so. If you wish to post an ad for a donation, or just make a donation to help cover costs, contact

Mail service for existing users is provided free of charge, therefore there are no guarantees of service or mail data. All users are encouraged to have a second email and to use POP mail so messages are permanently stored on your computer and not the limited mailbox on this server.

The last total update of this site was done in 2020 and updates are always in progress. Many of the links you may remember are gone, businesses closed, people moved away and websites lapsed. The links you see now are as current as possible. If you see an error, or think something should be listed contact

Cafe and restaurant owners will get their menus posted under the Local Dining tab on the front page absolutely free. Just give me a copy of your current menu to scan or email a PDF of it to the contact below.
