    A friend of mine wants me to make a website for him. the thing is, He wants me to make it look like it was built in 2005/2006 and never changed/upgraded.
    It's a website for an educational institute.
    So what do you suggest?
    Shall i use Joomla?Wordpress? Or a HTML template
    Shall i use WHo.is privacy guard to protect the information
    what are the other things to keep in mind?

    you will need a domain bought in that year or before than upload a html template without any timestamp or edit timestamps if there are any in that template make it look bit ugly and plain as if i recall that time there werent such super sexy sites :p

    I'm pretty sure I have not seen a Wix site that looked like it was updated in my entire life.

    There is only 1 problem, when somebody check the website via web.archive.org !

    I was going to come in and say Wix, but BTB beat me to it. Use Wix, those sites often look like they were made in MS paint.

    Use any PLR html template, and you are golden.

    i found here some 2006 ones order by date.
    http://www.oswd.org/designs/browse/

    i searched google free website template and year 2005 - 2006.
    It was the first link.

    Really weird designs back then.

    Why he needs it like that ?

    1. Buy an aged domain that was registered back in 2006.
    2. Wix / Shitty HTML templates.
    3. Protect the whois.

    But if someone REALLY wanted to dig into the site, I'm sure they'll be able to find out when the site was originally updated, and what its history was. You really can't cover all your tracks.

    This is probably the only solution, you would definitely need get an aged domain. But I'm not sure about the time of installation of the servers and stuff and cPanel, they could probably churn out a change log.
