How to make a complete copy of a website

Recommended Posts

This service will help you make a site copy : https://xdan.ru/copysite/?lang=en

(available in Russian and English)


The operation is similar to that performed by the browser when you press CTRL + S, but the structure of the site is not lost. Various extraneous styles and scripts (for example with CDN) can not be downloaded, but remain in place. At the output you will receive a zip archive, which you can copy to a USB flash drive or send by mail. The site from this archive will open in its original form even on a computer without access to the Internet. Ideal for creating templates for popular CMS (Joomla, Drupal) based on an existing site (usually foreign).


This copy will be a complete site mirror

  • the structure of the donor site will be recreated
  • all the images will be downloaded and decomposed according to this structure
  • All styles and scripts will also correspond to the structure of the donor site
  • all paths will be replaced by local ones, so that the site can be opened on a computer without access to the Interne
  • suitable for creating templates for popular cms


A list of several additional options is available before downloading by clicking on the gear icon in the upper right side of the page:
