Q. How do I cite a website using the MLA format?


To cite a page of a website, use the following general format for your Works Cited:

Last Name, First Name of Author if known. "Title of Webpage." Name of Website, Publisher if available, URL. Access date is optional but recommended.


"Earthquakes." Ready, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 27 Apr. 2020, https://www.ready.gov/earthquakes. Accessed 12 June 2020.

Goldman, Joshua. "Best Laptops of 2020." CNET, 25 May 2020, https://www.cnet.com/news/best-laptops-of-2020/. Accessed 12 June 2020.

"10 Scents That Repel Mosquitoes." Mosquito Magnet, https://www.mosquitomagnet.com/articles/10-scents-that-repel-mosquitoes. Accessed 20 June 2020.


In-text citations of a source should correspond to the first entry in your Works Cited citation. Longer titles can be shortened. For example, for the citations above, the in-text citations would be:



("10 Scents")
