WordPress.com has unveiled a groundbreaking 100-year plan for domain registrations, aiming to simplify the renewal process and provide long-term security for its users. This ambitious offering substantially surpasses the industry-standard term of 10 years, positioning it as an innovative solution for both businesses and families interested in preserving their digital footprint.

In a formal statement, the company revealed that a significant portion of its clientele consists of customers who have been with the platform since day one. Given this enduring commitment, a 100-year domain registration plan offers not just peace of mind, but practical utility for users aiming to secure their digital presence for generations to come.

WordPress.com, the platform behind what it labels as "the most trusted CMS on the planet," is not solely targeting corporate clients with its century-long domain plan. The service, which underpins 43% of the web, also aims to offer families an unparalleled way to safeguard digital memories, including irreplaceable photos and videos.

Details of 100-years domain lock

Matt Mullenweg, the co-founder and CEO of WordPress.com, articulated the vision behind the offer: "I hope this plan gets people and other companies thinking about building for the long term."

However, the comprehensive package comes with a hefty price tag that might give individual users pause. To lock in 100 years of domain protection, WordPress.com is charging a one-time fee of $38,000. Broken down, this amounts to $380 annually or almost $32 per month if calculated on a monthly basis.

The steep price is inclusive of a suite of premium features, such as regular backups, fortified ownership controls for seamless transitions among colleagues and family, and around-the-clock customer support. Additionally, the package comes with access to what the company describes as "top-tier managed WordPress hosting."

For those able to foot the bill, WordPress.com's 100-year plan provides an unparalleled level of security and longevity for both business and personal digital estates.

      Well it is a bit difficulty to distinguish between name.com domains and files for instance.

    The comments section under this very article (3 comments) is identical to the comments section found under the following article:

    Not sure what the issue is, but have seen this issue under some other articles recently but did not report it back then.

    With the cloud, there is no such thing as unlimited storage or privacy. Stop relying on these tech scums. Purchase your own hardware and develop your own solutions.

      This is a certified reddit cringe moment. Hilarious how the article’s author tries to dress it up like it’s anything more than a png for doing the reddit corporation’s moderation work for free (or for bribes from companies and political groups)

    With Google Chrome, it’s only been 1,500 for some time now.

    Anyone who wants to force me in such a way into buying something that I can get elsewhere for free will certainly never see a single dime from my side. I don’t even know how stupid their marketing department is to impose these limits on users instead of offering a valuable product to the paying faction. But they don’t. Even if you pay, you get something that is also available for free elsewhere.

    The algorithm has also become less and less savvy in terms of e.g. English/German translations. It used to be that the bot could sort of sense what you were trying to say and put it into different colloquialisms, which was even fun because it was like, “I know what you’re trying to say here, how about…” Now it’s in parts too stupid to translate the simplest sentences correctly, and the suggestions it makes are at times as moronic as those made by Google Translations.

    If this is a deep-learning AI that learns from users’ translations and the phrases they choose most often – which, by the way, is a valuable, moneys worthwhile contribution of every free user to this project: They invest their time and texts, thereby providing the necessary data for the AI to do the thing as nicely as they brag about it in the first place – alas, the more unprofessional users discovered the translator, the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, the greater the aggregate of linguistically illiterate users has become, and the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, as it now learns the drivel of every Tom, Dick and Harry out there, which is why I now get their Mickey Mouse language as suggestions: the inane language of people who can barely spell the alphabet, it seems.

    And as a thank you for our time and effort in helping them and their AI learn, they’ve lowered the limit from what was once 5,000 to now 1,500…? A big “fuck off” from here for that! Not a brass farthing from me for this attitude and behaviour, not in a hundred years.
