I depend on archive sites alot that sometimes I fear they may be hacked or their contents changed.
* How exactly do they work?

*Where are the archives stored?
 IPFS? Blockchain?

*Why are people confident in the sites

*Who owns the sites?

I use both https://archive.fo/ and https://archive.org/web/

Be careful most of the stubborn old viruses that is really difficult to delete is from archive.org,  it is usually from appearing a certain place when you search about torrents, better to use private network and do not accept cookies to notify if necessary.

What do you want to search on archive?

archive.org is a non-profit organization that has been around for ~20 years. They archive the web using a crawler (like Google) and also allow manual submissions. I'm not aware of any incidents regarding reliability of their archives but that of course doesn't mean much.

archive.is (.fo, .li, .today) has been around for ~5 years and archives web pages on-demand only. It's run by a some anonymous guy somewhere in Europe and its reputation has been unblemished so far. There is a lot of info about it in the FAQ and even more in the blog:

For example:

All data is stored on HDFS, textual content is duplicated 3 times among servers in different datacenters and images are duplicated 2 times

Basically, they set a computer program (called a "crawler") to browse the Internet and capture all the pages it reaches. The crawler follows links on pages to find more pages, which means that popular pages will be captured more often, and pages to which no links exist (sometimes called the "deep web") are excluded. Pages that indicate they do not want to be archived, via an instruction in a file called "robots.txt," are not archived by the crawler.
