Forever nothing can be determined. You don't have to see the collapse of things that were considered immutable? I had.
Tomorrow, the firm that sold You the service "forever" went bankrupt, collapsed and disappeared. Together with Your money, of course, no You do will not be compensated :)

Anywhere. In any case, it is without guarantees. There will be so many reservations that it is cheaper to pay every year.
There are hosters who have long terms of payment. 2 or 3 years there.

Just let down on account of payment of 20 years is considered forever

It is not possible. Yes, you do not have to. I buy servers for 20 years, and I know that will not work and 2 years, you'll want a new one. Not full But there Neym cost you 5-10t green. What now? Ask them to send you these glands and buy a new one? Or old give them? How are you going to scale it up? If there will burn a range of memory, you change it 1 month? While you pay for a new line until someone goes to replace.
And not who buys a dedicated server. Buying a car in a computing cluster. Make an owl or a cluster of different machines in different data centers for redundancy. I for example use AWS. For 20 years I have a server, can this be considered permanent? Of course. But he changed once in 3 years minimum, I recreate it with new resources. In the best years at me there was a very large power, not full But there neym. And now there's just a little serverok supports what is left. But the new project is already in the computer cluster on the containers.
See in the world of technology, it makes no sense to invest in such a long time. It will be more expensive.
Another advantage to use such services as AWS is easy to masturbirovat, reserve, balancing, all in a single click. If you want to make a replica, will buy another server? If you want to make a backup? Buy another backup server? As you will be doing internal infrastructure? Yourself? How much will it cost? Even if you get to use those servers for free, just to create all these services will be more expensive than buying already served by the server.
