Citing a website in Chicago style requires you to include much of the same information you would including in citing a print resource like author(s)/editor(s), title of website, publisher information, etc. which can sometimes be difficult to find on a website (you may have to look around quite a bit to find the information). Chicago style also requires that you include the date you accessed the website and/or publication date (if available), and the website's URL.

For example (don't forget to indent second and subsequent lines):

Lastname, Firstname. “Title of Web Page.” Publishing Organization or Name of Website in Italics. Publication date and/or access date if available. URL.

This information is intended to be a guideline, not expert advice. Please be sure to speak to your professor about the appropriate way to a website in your class assignments and projects.
