Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
