How do you cite a website in an?

QUESTION
How do you cite a website in an?
like in the middle of the essay, in-text.

Please put it in english! that means no Copying of MLA words

ANSWER
The same way that you would cite most larger sources, by placing the author’s last name in parentheses after the quote/summary. Here is an example:

“Using a parenthetical citation To identify the source of a quotation, paraphrase, or summary, place the author’s last name in parentheses after the cited material.”

“Parents know in advance, and with near certainty, that they will be addicted to their children” (Landsburg).

In this case, the author of the website was Landsburg.

If you can’t find the author’s name of the website, try to find the editor/sponsoring institution, or whatever can be used to identify your source. You can even use a few key words from the title of the site, if you absolutely cannot find the other information.

Hope this helps 🙂
