    Hello,

    I am trying to copy a website's design. I understand that there are some sites that httrack cannot copy - or it can, but a lot of thing will not work.
    Well, I just tried copying this one website, and it gave me a bunch of files. I opened index.html and everything seems to work in firefox browser. but how can i be sure of this? Is there something that I can look up on the original website to see if httrack can successfully copy it? for example, if the original website is ___ , then some functions in the copied website will not work, but if the website is ___, then everything will work.

    How can I be sure that this website that is currently copied on my computer works 100%?

    If it downloads a page successfully then that page will work. The only problem might be if that page is dependent on other files like images that you can not access.

    Just put the thing up and find out.

    I just learned that Hostgator's "Baby" plan (one upgrade from the lowest one "Hatchling") allows for unlimited domains on a single account. For about $10.00 a month. I have 3 up and running right now.
