Your unwanted online demise plan - tips, tricks, etc.
(sorry if it's a bit of a wall of text)
So, imagine that something happens to you and you can't do anything (vegetable state, long absence, death, whatever) - got this feeling forever but accentuated after COVID-19.
Imagine you're an online one or two man show (all your work is online).
For example, imagine that you have a business that works almost unattended, a SaaS, a hosting company with outsourced support, a marketplace/classified ads platform, an automated service site (print shirts on demand through partners), whatever.
You (and your business partner if exists) are no longer able to take care of it for any reason - you just can't.
You have relatives or persons of trust, yet, those persons aren't tech savvy nor understand anything about the business.
What's your plan? Do you have any?
Imagine that I want everything to go smoothly as possible for at least 1 year and 10 years would be a beautiful achievement.
- renewing domains for max years possible
- leave some money in the prepaid balance of any reputable domain/hosting company
- set all things possible to auto-renew
- configure servers to auto-restart everything (monit)
- leave a "open when dead" document/letter with all the passwords and necessary data for one of trust to know what's going on
Does anyone have any tip, trick or idea in addition to these?
What are, in your opinion, the most solid companies for this scenario, regarding domains, hosting/servers, payment gateways, etc.?
What do you think your relatives/persons of trust do in this case? Sell? Continue? If they decide to continue your work, how (you're a one man show)?
Is there anything I'm forgetting?
