    It is all depend on the website, If it is Wordpress based website then simply find out the WP theme and install it... same with other environment as well like Joomla etc etc

    And of course do everything with the combination of BHW search button :D

    What about the database? Anyway to get that? Is there anyone here who can recommend a company or person that is really good creating clone sites? I am currently looking to hire someone to recreate a clone.

    If it's database driven and non standard then you need to have someone replicate the whole thing, will probably cost you a fair bit.

    If it's a WP site and you own it then it's quite easy. You can use WPTwin or ManageWP.

    I use Website Ripper Copier. It hаs donе thе job fоr most of thе things I've needed.

    The problem is іf thеre'ѕ anу PHP code on the site. You'll only get the html output from it, so аll thе dynamic items wіll nоt work.

    it all depends on what coding programs have been used but anything would be easy to copy with a good knowledge of coding.

    There are lot of free trials on software out there that will do this for you. Search for a "website scraper".

    I have used "HTTrack website copier". It is probably the best free website scraper out there.

    Wow, didn't know there were so many programs for this. I made one, and called it 'Jack the HTML/CSS Ripper.'

    I'm not selling it though... not worth it since there's so many out there already. At least mine has the best name. :cool:

    I think you need Fiverr. There are reliable freelancers there and depending on the size of your web files, it will cost up to $15 at most.
