WordPress, a company that has been around for 20 years, now sells 100-year domain plans. This means that a blog or website can quite likely outlive its owner, writes TechCrunch.
In a blog post, the company announced that the plan is ideal for families who want to preserve their history online, as well as for founders looking to document their company’s journey.
The cost of the unusual plan is $38 thousand one-time. For this, WordPress will provide a domain with a 100-year registration, automatic backup to several servers and an online archive, advanced management and hosting tools, and round-the-clock support.
However, the company does not specify how it plans to update domains and backups in accordance with the ever-changing Internet landscape or what will happen to domains if the company decides to close the program.
It is worth reminding that WordPress is trying to adapt to today’s realities and launch new products. For example, in June, the company launched an artificial intelligence assistant to help users with the writing process.
