WordPress now sells domains with 100-year registration durations, TechCrunch reports.
The company announced in a blog post that this 100-year plan is the perfect choice for people who want to keep what they’ve created online for many more years, as well as for founders who can document their company’s journey and progress.
However, to get this plan, you have to pay a one-time amount of $38,000. In return, WordPress will provide a 100-year domain registration, automatic backups to multiple servers and even the Internet archive, advanced ownership and hosting tools, and round-the-clock support.
“Whether it’s giving a newborn the special gift of a domain and lifetime home on the web, or something you put in your will to make sure your website and story are accessible to future generations, I hope this plan gets people and other companies thinking about building for the long term”, said Matt Mullenweg, WordPress CEO in a statement.
The WordPress post doesn’t mention how the domains and backups will be updated in line with the ever-changing internet landscape, or what will happen to the domains if the company decides to shut down the program for any reason.
