Nords, we are misunderstood geniuses whose writings will only be fully appreciated long after we have passed away.

Acrobat Pro will capture an entire web site to a single PDF. That could be stored on Google Drive or some free service for a long time.

Also, a complete site can be zipped or archived. I found that has a compression format they use.

If I had static content I wanted to preserve, I would go down both of these roads in addition to keeping a site online.

Just opened a new account at Dreamhost with one child. That will ensure a second admin, and there are many ways to ensure child can continue with hosting arrangement.

If this is something you have written then perhaps it is an asset and will pass to your heir for that asset whoever that will be. From what you have posted I gather that this is historical research which you have written up in html with links. Therefore, after you are gone will it be owned by whoever is your heir (whether by will or intestate succession)? If so, won't the then owner of this asset be responsible for how it is handled (or not handled)?

Now I'm not entirely sure from what you have said if this is actually is an asset or not. However, at least part of what you have raised is a legal question (such who owns and has control of this website you create and of the written content on the website). Therefore, my strong suggestion is that before you go too far down this path that you consult with an attorney in your state who has expertise in these areas.
