AP style change

Posted by kathyspurlock on April 16, 2010

The Associated Press is changing its style from “Web site” to “website” to reflect increasingly common usage.

The change is effective at 3 a.m. EDT Saturday, April 17.

A new entry on website has been added to the AP Stylebook Online and will be included in the updated text version, the 2010 AP Stylebook, which will be published next month.

The entry says:

Website: A location on the World Wide Web that maintains one or more pages at a specific address. Also, webcam, webcast and webmaster. But as a short form and in terms with separate words, the Web, Web page and Web feed.
