I have a website (with data and modeling interface) that will be referenced in a series of scientific publications that are beginning to be published.
Currently the website is along the lines of
myserver.institution.edu/mysite but I would like to change this to something like
Costs for the site range from $37/year for 2 years to $9.99 for 100 years. Even 100 years would be a tiny fraction of the overall research budget, but my first inclination is to go for five years at $33/year. But I don't even know if the web will still be around by then, much less a server hosting this work.
(this is related, but not a duplicate of related, but not a duplicate of How to archive an academic blog or website?)
Is five years long enough? Is 100 years justifiable?
