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

Answer

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.

Examples:

"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: 

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:

("Earthquakes")

(Goldman)

("10 Scents")
