There are times that want all of the pages of your website as PDF. You may want to do a review on the layout or do compliancy checks. Or you want to copyright your entire website at the copyright office. Or you simply want a backup of all the pages, just the way they look on your screen.
With a business license you can make use of our easy-to-use website to PDF conversion page. With a few simple clicks you can choose which website to convert and we'll then create a PDF of the entire website for you. We use the conversion options (such as page size and orientation) that you select in our members area. As soon as we're done with the PDF we'll send you an email so you can download it.
This process allows websites with 500 pages or less. For larger websites we have an advanced conversion page that allows up to 2000 pages.
You just execute the following steps.
After you enter your site and schedule the conversion, we will try to gather all the pages of your website.
We will first always try to find your sitemap (what is a sitemap?) to do this. If you don't have a sitemap yet, we strongly advise you to create one because that's the most reliable way to ensure we take the right pages. You can create one online here if you don't have a sitemap yet or if you don't know how to do this.
Your XML sitemap needs to be listed in your robots.txt file or in the root of your domain, so if your site is http://www.example.com then your sitemap needs to be at http://www.example.com/sitemap.xml. You can find out more about sitemaps at sitemaps.org.
The options that you have set and saved in the members area home page, are also the ones that we will use for the website to pdf conversion. So if you want all pages in A4 / portrait format, then you first set those options in the members area and save them and then start the website to PDF conversion process.
The website conversion process counts every webpage in your website as one conversion so if your website contains 500 pages then you will be able to do this process exactly ONCE with a Starter License, because that package allows 500 PDFs.
In order to protect our systems and our other customers from servers being overused, we have the following default limitations. These limits can be lifted on request, but a surcharge will apply. Please inquire for a possible upgrade of your license.
