Convert HTML Websites into PDF

By Daniel Scocco

On some occasions you might want or need to convert a website or a specific web page into a PDF document. For example, if you came across a really interesting article that you want to save locally in your computer for future reference.

html website to pdf convert

There is a really efficient web tool for that purpose called HTML-PDF-Converter. You just need to type the URL of the website or page, and in a matter of seconds a download window will open asking where you want to save the PDF document. The quality is pretty good, too.

    Whole website can be saved as pdf? Nice tool! Will it work for blogs?(e.g. DBT πŸ˜‰ )

    Great tip it works!

    Are you coming out with a new Domain Registration Book, I went to recommend Killer Domains and it is being transformed?

  • Jamie Harrop

    That’s a wonderful tool, Daniel.

    I wrote a guest post on John Chow’s blog not too long ago, talking about converting blog posts and documents to PDF.

    One of the things I mentioned was the PDF24 WordPress plugin that allows readers to download blog posts as a PDF: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pdf24-post-to-pdf/

    Thanks!

    Haha. Buy a mac, it has save as PDF when you hit the print button. Easy as a pie. You can save any website, and create pdf’s from any type of document that can be printed. It wont get any easier than that. Furthermore you will not depend on someone else’s website and whim.

  • Aravind Jose T.

    There’s been many like this around. Damn useful.

  • Melvin

    Cool, its a great tool considering I am always looking for ebook on the go.. πŸ™‚

  • Frank

    I’ve used the PDF Download plugin (http://www.pdfdownload.org/) for years. Another nice one is Primo Print (http://www.primopdf.com/) Primo installs as a print driver and you simply ‘print’ the page and it’s converted to a PDF.

  • Franck Silvestre

    This a pretty nifty tool. πŸ™‚ I thought only documents can be converted to PDF. Now if the html codes can be converted into a PDF file, then it’s a good tool for saving up web content. Thanks!

  • Ruchi

    Great Tool, I hope it work reverse also… I need to explore.

  • Zach

    Cool tip–thanks for passing it along!

  • Norilyn Aspera

    This is awesome! I’d love to try it out. I am sure this will work well with the ebook I am working on. Thanks. πŸ˜‰

  • balbir

    nice thing, what about other types of content such as video, flash animations and others

  • Razib Ahmed

    “Limited resources/Server encounter some error. Please try again later”
    This is the message I got.

  • GregR

    On the Mac, go Print, save-as PDF and blam…..

  • Killer

    I think this tool would be helpful for writers to help them submit work samples. You could create a PDF of your article and attach it to submissions!

  • Riz

    Another website offering this and more functionality is http://www.PdfonFly.com

    You can create pdf from webpage url or create pdf using an online editor.

  • angelica

    great tip! thanks!

  • HTML to PDF

    that was some sort of good solution – there are some other good solutions available into the market but this sems to be the best so far.. .

  • Jijo

    Wow!
    The site looks unique and nice. But i don’t find any difficulty to create a PDF file without converting and HTML page.

  • ravi

    PDF files are always easier to read locally than HTML

  • emden09

    Sorry to say, but the Headline is missleading. The tool does not convert Websites but webpages to html. Very anoying to me to try this and fail.
