Is the Stack Exchange engine available?

Is it possible for me to make a Q&A site like Stack Overflow for a different topic? How much money it will cost? I have my own VPS; can I host the site there?

The Stack Exchange platform (for all intents and purposes) is not for sale.

If you'd like to make your own Q&A platform, you can try one of the open-source alternatives to Stack Exchange, or you can go through the Area51 proposal process and see if your idea has a community around it.

Look at Area51. It is a staging zone for new sites:

This is true, but not what the OP was looking for. The answer to the OP's question, as George said, is "no." –  Pops Mar 8 '11 at 15:29
    
@Popular, the OP wanted a SE site but on a different topic. Although the OP is willing to pay and host, it did not seem like a requirement. So, if they are just looking for a different SE site or have a new idea then area51 is the place to go. The OP has no related accounts and might not be aware that other sites exist. –  jzd Mar 8 '11 at 15:33
    
Hm, I read it as "I specifically want to buy a private SE site but my English is no good." But your way makes sense too. (More interesting is the fact that there are no related accounts; I didn't think that was even possible. Perhaps he had one but broke the association?) –  Pops Mar 8 '11 at 15:38
