    Hello all
    I am using this forum from last few days, got some good knowledge and some good friends here :)

    Well for a little intro of mine :
    I am a internet enthusiast , who started working as ptc clicker at the age of 12, and 3 years later i started providing ideas and strategies to ptc admins and worked as PTC-SUPPORTER for 1 year and handled almost 85 ptc/bux websites..
    meanwhile i started some blogs, participated in various convo. about Facebook/google+ etc and won some bucks....tried many,many other things too...

    For now i just finished my schooling (17yo now) and I have many ideas for business both online and offline but don't have enough money to start either...
    anyway this is not about which i am talking here..

    I am looking to build a website clone (only the frame, not content), it even need not to look exactly the same.
    Can anybody advice me how to start or what to do?
    I am willing to learn coding also if it is the essential part.

    Please share your basic tips on :
    How to do it?
    Which language preferable (as far i can think it depends on the parent website scripting...right?)
    I heard that Google does not prefer the clone website, so is it worth doing?
    Every pros/cons you can think of..


    P.S- I am not willing to post the website name here, can always PM you :)

    thanks for your time..

    If you want to go from 0 to website as fast as possible, learn PHP.

    If you are interested in learning a more powerful, mature programming language, learn Ruby or Python instead. It will take you longer to get a website up and running if you start with Ruby or Python, but you will be able to do things faster once you get set up.

    You can probably get up to speed with any of those three languages in 2 - 6 months. It will be very frustrating at first, because there's so much new information to take in, so you have to be patient and get good at finding helpful information.

    Just Google "PHP tutorial" or whatever to get started. There are probably some good video lessons on UDemy or YouTube out there, too!

    When you get good at HTML/CSS/JS, you will know the answer. First you need to walk before you can run.

    The best advice i could give you is: try to find an open source project that does the exact same thing you want to clone, it's probably out there.
    I've started too many projects just to find out that i could have used an open source project that does the exact same thing i tried to clone.
    For the programming part - you should learn html/css/js/php as people said

    I would suggest learning front end coding first, primarily HTML (actual data) | CSS (form) | & Javascript/JQuery (functionality/responsiveness on the front side). Pretty much that can give you the "frame" of the site that you'd like to do. From there, you can add in functionality on the server-side, using a scripting language such as Perl/PHP/Python/Ruby. Many of these have frameworks to develop with, and pretty much each has their own fanbase that would argue that theirs is the best. Ideally, I would suggest Python or Ruby (IMHO: Perl is older/ancient, and PHP is a mess(used to be a WP dev)). Hell, even JavaScript (with Node.js) is turning into a backend scripting tool.

    Best thing to do is find the one with the community you trust, framework you want to learn, and which one you can get set up with the easiest. :)

    HTML and CSS for the design. PHP and Javascript for the scripting. Once you feel you have enough knowledge, you can try to create your clone. If you run into problems there are many dedicated web design and development forums where you can ask for help. The people at BHW are very knowledgeable too. Spend some time learning, and some time on the practical. You need both to progress fastest.
