Many time you don’t want just an article from a website but the whole /entire website. Its useful when there is no internet connectivity or server is down. Its important for research students, teachers in remote area to have access to particular contents from a website.
Whats the easiest way to donwload entire website to your hard drive and access it offline?
There is a great tool for downloading entire website. HATTRACK.
It allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site’s relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the “mirrored” website in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it online. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. HTTrack is fully configurable, and has an integrated help system.
This tool is available for windows 2000/xp/vista/7 and Linux/ unix/ BSD

Thanks for your information. I have downloaded a website. But when I open the home webpage and click a link in it, I am always directed to the corresponding online webpage rather than the offline webfile. If I cut off my internet connection, then it will be an error to display the webpage. Could you please suggest what I should do? Thanks a lot.
Nice article, I must say I am very much impressed with this stuff. I will try it one of this fine days
