One way of printing from website is having Acrobat Professional (not the free Acrobat Reader) installed on your system. This is the best method of printing to PDF. This program gives you most options, like create PDF from current webpage, or webpages of all the links present in the webpage or the complete website. But Acrobat Professional is not cheap.

There are some free PDF printers available on the internet. Try to look in Google for "Free PDF printer". See the options it is providing and download and install. This freeware will install a PDF printer in your Printers folder. Now from any web page you can print it into a PDF file. You can also look in PlanetPDF site for some guidence.

Make sure you download a completely free version. Usually trial versions and shareware programs leave a water mark on the PDF file which is difficult to remove (Only Acrobat Professional can remove them).
