There is a good chance that your website will outlast you.
If you are concerned that your website will not be accessible to users in the far future, WordPress provides a solution for you: a 100-Year Plan.
In most cases, the maximum number of years for a domain registration is ten. According to the proposal, WordPress will register and host your website for a century, which means that it is quite possible that it will survive you.
Even if it is possible to use it to store pictures of your collection of Beanie Babies, the primary goal of the service is to provide businesses and families with a method through which they may keep content preserved for more than one generation. “families who wish to preserve their digital assets — stories, photos, sounds, and videos… for generations to come,” is one of the use cases that the business suggests for the service. Another use case is “founders who want to protect and document their company’s past, present, and future.”
Customers who purchase the plan will not only receive domain registration for a century, but they will also receive hosting through WordPress with unmetered bandwidth as well as customized assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week. WordPress claims that it will make numerous backups of content and store them in a variety of data centers to ensure the content’s safety. Additionally, WordPress will submit your site to the Internet Archive automatically if your content is available to the public. It also has ownership protocols in place so that you can transfer ownership of the URL to a kid or someone new, which is something that most likely will be required at some point in the future.
The strategy is, unsurprisingly, not cheap. The total cost of a 100-year plan is $38,000, or $380 each year. The price may be fair for a corporation concerned with its legacy, but it may put the service out of reach for many individuals and small businesses.
