Until now, the only way to avoid the threat of broken links was to avoid them altogether, and the only way to preserve online content
was with screenshots and caches, alternatives that are never as good as the real thing: a working link pointing to a working webpage. That is
where Mummify comes in.

When you Mummify a webpage—a news article, blog post, photo or tweet, for example— we make a permanent copy and back it up in the cloud. We then give you a new URL that looks like this:
You would then share the Mummified URL instead of the original one. Why? Well, for as long as the original webpage remains live on the internet, the Mummified URL (http://mummify.it/2452862) will point to the original webpage
Mummify will then monitor the original webpage, and if it ever gets deleted, changed or goes down entirely, the Mummified URL will point to the Mummy, the permanent copy of the webpage
Mummify is free for up to 100 mummies a month. Click the button below to try it out, or scroll down to read some frequently asked questions.
Yep! Mummify is free up to 100 mummies a month. If you need to Mummify more than 100 pages in a given month you can purchase 50 more for $5.
Mummify will not work for any private content that you must be logged in to view. Examples include Facebook messages, a private facebook profile, email, Twitter direct messages, online bank accounts or stock portfolios.
A Mummy is a permanent copy, or cache, of anything online. When you Mummify something, we provide you with a permanent link that will work forever, even if the original page gets taken off the internet or moved. Mummies can be created and managed in your dashboard.
Right now we cannot Mummify flash content, video, sounds or PDF content. If you Mummified a video page on Youtube or Vimeo, only the comments and other information on the page would be saved, not the video itself.
Going out of business is unlikely due to the self-sustaining nature of the service, but if we do we will move all of the Mummies to long-term storage on Amazon Glacier ($.01 per GB) and give users up to a year to download a .zip file with all of their Mummies
Thanks to the rapidly declining cost of storage space, we can confidently say that your Mummies will be available virtually forever. The cost per gigabyte also gets cheaper for every terabyte stored. We are storing all data in Amazon's cloud storage service.
