Download A Web Site With wget

This is a reference on how to download an entire web site using wget program. This works for both Windows and Linux variant of the program.
There are 2 ways to use wget to download a web site. Below are my recommendation of the usage of the wget command.

Simple & Easy
wget -m [url]
Longer & More Control
wget \
 --recursive \
 --no-clobber \
 --page-requisites \
 --html-extension \
 --convert-links \
 --domain [url] \
 --no-parent
Extra Tweak to Avoid Getting Ban By Server Admin
Some server admins might ban the download if there are no delay in between downloads and in high speed. The extra option below will probably avoid getting ban from the server admins.
--wait=[seconds] --limit-rate=[download speed in 'k']
