    Possible to make a copy of website?


    I don't know how to explain this, but I will try my best.

    My brother died recently but a few years before his death he created his very first website (which he had never tried before) for a local tennis club, which he maintained and updated.

    I am going to give the tennis club the domain name and they might change the look of the website in the future.

    I was wondering if it would be possible for me to save the website as it is to remember what he did?

    Thanks

    Once you give it to them then any changes they make will wipe out what he did. Only thing I know of is to save all pages using your browser then keep in a safe place.
    Sorry about your brother.

    EDIT: Don't know if he used a third party service for site building but if so they may have a way to save/backup the entire site on your local computer. If he did it all himself then you may already have it on whatever computer he used.

    Quite understandable and can see why you want to save something he basically created.

    Before using a mass download utility you should check the terms of service of the hosting service. Many have policies prohibiting these utilities as they can impose a heavy burden on the server that effects other users.
