There are various ways by which you can convert entire website to PDF.
Save Website as PDF via Adobe Acrobat
If you have Adobe Acrobat installed on your PC, you can just open the software while your website is open and select “Create PDF” option. From there you have to click on “from webpage” option. Once you do that, you will have to click on the “Multiple Levels” option which will allow you to save the entire website as PDF. If you use the level 1 option, it won’t convert the subpages. So, the choice is yours, depending on your need. You also get the option to convert website to PDF in a landscape form. Once you are done saving the website as PDF, you can Print, Share and do as you please.

Use PDF MyURL
One more way to save an entire website as PDF is to use PDF MyURL. It’s a paid tool but it is the best that’s available out there. All you need is a business license and sign up for their services. You can choose the pages you want to be saved or choose the option to save the entire website. You can also choose the orientation and size of the PDF file. Once you become a member, you can select your preferences, give them the desired website URL and your job is done. You will receive an email with your PDF file in no time. Once you get it, you can download and save or share it as you wish.
You can even request for a watermark to be included and encrypt your file as well. You will receive a notification when your file is ready. Creating a sitemap is a good way to ensure that the correct pages are selected for converting website to PDF. If you don’t have a sitemap, crawlers will be used to scan the pages which need to be converted and sometimes crawlers can’t detect some pages due to technical reasons. A single package with PDF MyURL allows you to convert 500 pages. Once your PDF is ready, and you get a notification, download it soon, as they store the PDF file in their system for a maximum of two days.
I would any day go with Adobe Acrobat to convert website to PDF if it is for casual purposes. But, if you want some advanced options like watermark and encryption, tools like PSD MyURL is something you should consider. Is there any other tool for the same purpose that you know of?
