If you are citing an entire website, it is not necessary to include a citation for the website in your reference list. Simply include the title and address within the text of your paper.
The Kids Health website includes information for parents on children's health, behavior and development from birth through adolescence (http://kidshealth.org).
When citing specific information from individual web pages, use the following elements to create your citation. For more information on creating citations when some of the elements are missing, see the APA Style and Grammar Guidelines page on missing reference information.
More examples of citations for web pages are on the APA Style and Grammar Guidelines page.
Note: Citations with more than one line of text should have a hanging indent of 1/2 inch or 5 spaces.
