How do you cite a website in an essay? I need help fast!?

QUESTION
How do you cite a website in an essay? I need help fast!?
I need to know how to cite it IN MY TEXT, not just at the end. I’m writing about education in Victorian England, this is one of my sources :

Roth, Christine. “Victorian England : An Introduction.” Welcome — Department of English. University of Wisconsin. Web. 08 Feb. 2012. <>.http://www.english.uwosh.edu/roth/VictorianEngland.htm>.

How am I supposed to cite this INSIDE OF MY PAPER? As in after a sentence?

ANSWER
Parenthetical citation is as follows:

A sentence that you have referred to in your own writing:

This is the cited text (Jones 2008).

Quoted text is: “this is the quoted text” (Jones, 2008).

A paragraph is indented…

“This is a paragraph
of cited text” (Jones, 2008).

Basically you put a parenthesis after the sentence you want to site and include the author’s LAST NAME and the date of the work. For a book you put the page number, not the date. Put it before the period.
