How to convert a web page into PDF format using renderAs attribute

Companies frequently need web page data to be converted into PDF. So, they can have an easy look into the progress. For this in salesforce, we can convert visualforce pages, which consist of critical data into PDF format.

In salesforce, many customized pages and data are developed according to the requirement. Those customized pages and data are done within visualforce pages, hence these pages can be converted into PDF file.

<apex:page standardController="Contact" renderAs="pdf" >
