How do you cite a webstie? (MLA Format) In-Text?

QUESTION
How do you cite a webstie? (MLA Format) In-Text?
How do you cite an website in text? Not on a citation page but in the essay. My teacher requires in-text citation. Must be MLA format. Thanks for your help

ANSWER
In-text citations for electronic sources are treated in most respects as print texts are. The only real difference occurs because electronic texts do not have page numbers (unless the source is in PDF format or otherwise mimics a print version of the source). Sometimes, numbered paragraphs appear on an electronic source. In such cases, use paragraph numbers instead of page numbers. The paragraph number should appear in your citation following the abbreviation par. If an electronic source includes section numbers or screen numbers, use those numbers after the word section or screen. Most often, however, the source will have no paragraph, section, or screen numbers. In such instances, include no number in the parentheses, as shown below:

The Collaborative Virtual Workspace (CVW) prototype is being used by

the Defense Department for crisis management (Davidson and Deus).

Hope that helps!
