How do you archive a website? I didn’t even know it was possible.

Try to find links from https://archive.org/web/ , http://webcitation.org , or 
https://archive.is (note: this last one is blacklisted on enwp, iirc). I 
revived few deadlinks (not this host though) from these archives.

And try to make habit of archiving websites when you cite something. I think I 
once saw a project to automatically archive citation source links but not sure 
about current status.
