    Yes, there is one service that allows your site to be on the internet forever, and it's free....


    Internet Archive: Wayback Machine


    And since they decided in 2017 that it's none of your business if your site is archived, you have no choice but to have you site on the internet forever and ever.

    Some sort of monitoring service would be good. I found out my site had gone offline for 6 weeks due to a cloudflare/godaddy IP address issue. It sucks to think of how much money I lost from that.

      What happens in 100 years if that service is wiped off the face of the earth.. ? That's not for ever.

      If the OP had asked what he needed to keep the website going a few years, he should set up a recurring payment every year with the host and keep his credit card on file current. Plus hope the company is still around in 5-10 years. Including the Domain Company that the name servers are pointed at..

      It would be like any other business. If you haven't put a plan for succession in place, it would be handled by the legal executors of your estate.

      If the business is to continue after your death, someone has to run it. That's a decision for you. If you're concerned, maybe you should talk to your employees (if you have any) or any family and friends who may be affected and, if necessary, get a legal agreement drawn up.

    Actually, there is a free way, but its kind of shady and that is subjective. Also, not a public website as you know it. Research the dark web, torrents, private browsers and be very, very, very careful.


    The way it works is you upload fragments of a file or files (torrents) to "nodes" that live forever and can only be accessed (hashed) with a private browser.

    After thinking on it, here's an option.

    Buy a domain name for 100+ (or maximum years) and forward it to your amazon products page (if you sell on amazon) because if any site will last a long time, it will probably be amazon.

    I'm sure there are other ideas. My 2 cents for now. Cheers.

      You must be a gambler and probably gable other people's money because that is absolutely nonsense to put it politely.


      Who is to say the domain name provider will be around 100+ years from now and if they aren't what happens to your DNS? Hmm?


      What happens if the domain name provider is around for 100+ years and Amazon terminates access from forwarders? Hmm?


      What happens if Amazon blacklists your domian name provider ISP? Hmm?


      I could go on and on.



      Unfortunately, your ideas are not worth 2 cents for now. Cheers.

      Sorry to tell you, but your idea won't work. Max time for domain registrations is 10 years at a time for .com, .net, .org TLDs and much less for most other TLDs. Legacy isn't cheap or easy, my friend. You have to work very hard to achieve legacy.



      The only quick way I know of is to be a serial killer. Serial killers are immortalized in countless books and authority websites (like wikipedia). But even then, if you want true legacy, you have to be able to evade authorities for a long time (or forever in the case of Jack the Ripper), and hope the media sensationalizes you on-and-off the whole time and gives you a catchy name.

      If you want to achieve legacy with your business, you have to hand it down through generations and hope that future generations will keep it alive (if it's even possible). But since communism and socialism are winning the world-over, that will probably never work either since free market will go away and no one will be able to own a business or be very limited as to what kinds of businesses they can run.

      Focus on today and for tomorrow for your kids, but not too far like "forever". Forever really doesn't exist for the most part.


      EDITED TO SAY: Actually, forever does exist for one group of people in this world, but we are not allowed to talk about them. Hint: There are museums for these people in almost every western country and some countries even have multiple museums.

  • There is no such thing which works forever you need to work on your site time to time to get results.

    FOREVER doesn't exist so your question is based on a false premise

    What's the goal of having a site online for a reaaaaallllllly long time? If it's to collect commissions, you'll be dead at some point so they'll be no use to you. Maybe you could put it in your will that your descendants (if you have any) will get future commissions after your demise. No descendants? Have future commissions paid to the local cat sanctuary

    If it's about being remembered as having existed, then, yeah, the Wayback Machine will take care of that for you.

    Aside from that, your webhosting company will eventually go out of business (all businesses eventually die, just like people) so your site will go offline if you're not around to rebuild it somewhere else.

    If there's a Carrington Event level solar flare then all the electrical grids on the planet will be fried and we'll be tossed back into a Middle Ages type existence. And your site won't be online any more.

    If the human race succumbs to the multiple apocalypses on the horizon - climate change, overpopulation, antibiotic resistance, AIs gone bad, World War III and so on - there';l be no one around to look at your website. Any survivors will have other priorities!

    Kind of an open ended question but you have to pay for your hosting and you are going to need to keep it updated on what ever traffic source you are using.

    By the way you dont have to pay for hosting if you redirect. Anyhow I wish all the best. Will focus on my own and will do this. Cheers.

    Btw here's a video to elaborate better. Cheers.

    As someone already mentioned there is the Way Back Machine.

    You could also archive the text content of your website by incorporating it into the bitcoin blockchain, this website https://cryptograffiti.info/ allows you do such

    The only other option is paying for hosting for many years in advance and using a big hosting firm that are likely to stick around a long time

      Yeah, that was me who mentioned Wayback Machine. But after watching the OP's vid and reading his subsequent posts in the thread, it is apparent that what he wants is for the website to actually continue to generate sales/profit.



      This isn't possible for a myriad of reasons.

    "If you believe in forever, then life is just a one-night-stand." ~ Righteous Brothers

    Here Are Some of the Oldest Surviving Books in the World:

    Codex Parisino-Petropolitanus, 7-8th century. ...
    St. Cuthbert Gospel, 7-8th century. ...
    The Pseudo-Apuleius Herbarius, 6-7th century. ...
    Gärima Gospels, 390-570. ...
    Codex Sinaiticus, 330-360. ...
    The Nag Hammadi library, 3-4th century. ...
    Dead Sea Scrolls, 2nd century BCE-1st century CE. ...
    The Etruscan Gold Book, 6th century BCE.
    https://theculturetrip.com/europe/un...-in-the-world/
    I predict they will still be around after the Internet is a distant memory.

    For legacy.
    So, the answer to your question is: Publish a "real" book.

    claudewhitacre.com is a website that may not stay up forever, but if you start reading the material it seems to go on forever.

    Define "forever".

    You are aware that our sun is due to turn into a Red Giant in about 5 billion years aren't you? Long before that all life on Earth will have died out. Or by "forever" did you mean for a while after you've shuffled off this mortal coil?

    Either way there's nothing you can do about it .
