    Can we copy one website to other website and port complete all code, functionality etc. OR may be only partial code/pages/functionality. If feasible, how easily can this be done.

    If you are trying to copy the code of a website already online then that is not advisable-you would basically be stealing copyrighted code. Is this what you are trying to do?

    Absolutely NOT. I am seeing that I have to develop websites with multiple domain names but very similar content. So it's all my own copyrighted material that i am sharing with my own websites. I just want to know how easy/difficult it is to guide me deciding shall I go for multiple domains or single one. I prefer multiple domains if I can really copy functionalities/pages from one website to others.

    Sorry, didn't mean to imply anything with my question. I think if you are using html and CSS then you can easily copy and paste code and duplicate the code for other sites and layouts. If you are using Wordpress I think you can get software to copy the content and duplicate it.

    What base are you using for that website? Simply HTML files or are you using a CMS that is storing content and settings in a database?

    That's another question I am still answering, most likely I will go with Drupal..if not WordPress. I need the website with e-commerce with e-learning features and lot of interactive UI. Folks are suggesting that Drupal will be the right choice for this kind of complex requirement.

    If you are planning on using the same theme for various websites what about setting up a WordPress multisite and use the same theme and customize it via the standard Wordpress options?

    That's a great question dreamsr4ever, and it depends on your goal. If you are using multiple domains for advertising purposes, absolutely. Just don't use the exact same content, and best if you don't spin the same content. Regarding the website itself, it's very easy to clone in any CMS, and I do it in WP all the time. You just simply do a search and replace for the domains, the server path throughout the website, and then change your DB settings. I hope that helps.
