Perpetual Web Hosting

Would you like your writings online to last forever?

Dave Winer muses about perpetual web hosting.

Usually, you pay a monthly fee for your web site. That's you, not your relatives. Let's say something happened to you last month. Who will continue paying your hosting fees?

Dave writes that he's willing to pay $10,000 to ensure his sites outlive him. That sounds interesting... the concept of immortal web sites.

I wonder, though, who will enforce that kind of contract. If you can't rely on your friends and relatives to pay your monthly webhosting bill, how can you expect them to monitor and ensure that your site is still online?

Our writings online are fragile. They can easily disappear. It takes a lot of effort to keep them alive on the web. Perhaps we can get our blog posts and publish them with the help of or another print on demand publisher.

Then again, who will bother keeping the printed version?

Perpetual web hosting will probably work... but only in our mind. Only in our final thought.
