The same way you do "File" -> "Save As" in your web browser. There are web services devoted to public web archival like those mentioned by Yongmin Hong. Adding links to archives in references is a very good advice; Wikipedia already supports appending links to archives in the ref template parameters. It would be nice to see this happening automatically and makes me wonder whether the community has discussed it before.

Try to find links from , , or (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.
