Restore dead websites that don’t exist anymore: Archivarix



Service fully restores to life dead websites by leveraging the Internet Archive / Wayback Machine available at web.archive.org.


Key features:

  • Recreates a working copy of the original website
  • Downloadable in .zip file
  • Auto-elimination of 404 pages, broken images, external links, scripts, etc.
  • Auto-deletion of all banners, counters and other external scripts via AdBlock database
  • Website optimization in accordance with the recommendations of Google Developers.
  • Tons of more options and features that you can set
  • Integrated CMS for editing pages of restored websites



Free version: Allows website restore with up to 200 files for free.

Additional files will cost 0.5 cents per file or $5 for the first thousand files.

Every next thousand files will only cost $0.5.


First example: the site contains 385 files, including all pages, images, scripts and style files. From this quantity you can deduct 200 because they will be free of charge. So we have 185 files left and you need to pay only for these. Multiply by the file price $0.005, and it equals to $0.93. The cost of the site recovery is $0.93.


Second example: the big site contains 25,520 files. From this quantity you can deduct 200 because they will be free of charge. So we have 25,320 paid files. First thousand will cost $5, and the rest 24,320 costs only $0.5 per thousand, therefore $12.16. Full price for the big site recovery is $17.16.




My comment: Unique service can restore old and defunct websites for which you don't even have a backup. The service relies on the Internet Archive to fully reconstruct any website within a specific time period. The cost is negligible. The restored website can be viewed on hosted server with Linux or Apache installed. Highly recommended.
