    the website it's self can be cloned in an hour tops... If you want a clone of the app it would cost a lot more...

    You can probably find clone scripts on the net for free.. But don't do it, build your own empire and make some real cash with it.
    Clones wont get you far :)

    I personally would quote you at $400, just because cloning seems unoriginal and it's quite tedious sometimes when you get random errors. Let me know if you're interested.

    In terms of the generated HTML, styling & a static webpage, you can clone a site yourself very simply. Now if you're talking about cloning some sort of scripted site, (php, ruby, python, etc) - it depends on the depth of functionality needed. There are quite a few clones of sites being sold, which range from free to tens of thousands of dollars. If you are willing to pay a developer, it'll cost whatever they charge for their time.

    Try looking for "website clone maker", it's a freeware and it should to it with this kind of sites. Also there are a few sellers on fiverr making clones for 5$

    I think also too that the site doesn't have too much functionality. The best possibility is to write my own script but the problem is how can i write the functionality with enroll, the point and the app developer panel system...

    First off.. I am sorry for digging up an old thread. I tried to PM you but I cannot as I do not have fifteen posts yet. Secondly, I am interested in your services so could you possibly PM me? Or anyone else for that matter who would feel comfortable creating a clone of a website. A functioning one at that.

    jessthebest, since no one answered you here is how to clone a website (one without any server-side scripting). http://www.httrack.com/

    Set it to download, and you are able to get all the JS/CSS/HTML & other information that is publicly accessible as it crawls the site.
