Unfinished web design

Does a website have a lifespan?

Does a website have a lifespan?
For the past few years, I've been using the ideas of foreign sites, and I've been wondering what the situation is like in Japan. It's been a while since I surfed the web in Japan. And then I saw a headline that caught my attention.

The lifespan of a website is about five years.

What?
It's true that my idea is to update the website around five years, but that's when using a CMS.
This does not apply to all homepages, webs, and sites.

I started my own website by typing HTML tags in Notepad on my cell phone.
So I understand that there are many different specifications for HTML, and that the display changes depending on the specification and the browser.
I'm not going to explain the details and implications here, because you can find them by searching.

What I can say is that simple HTML has no lifespan.
These codes can be viewed in the browsers of old PC devices without worrying about security at all.
However, it is important to manage server security in order to let simple HTML be transmitted!

What I'm trying to say is that if you don't have a problem with not supporting the latest devices and browsers, you can still use it.
This is why I think it's a mistake to think that the lifespan of a website is about five years.

In fact, there are rare people who are running their websites with simple HTML.
There are also some people who are obsessed with simple HTML and have memories of it, so they keep it.

I don't mind recommending the latest design.
But I don't think we should push the latest as if it is the answer to the Internet world.

I want the infinite Internet world to remain free...
