How to cite a Website in Chicago/Turabian

Citing a general website article

Note: Website citations are often left out of the bibliography and are instead mentioned in a note or within the text. If your instructor would like a formal citation, use the format below. Include a URL and a publication date or date of last revision; if either of those dates cannot be found, include an accessed date. 

Note: Capitalization rules depend on the website you are citing. Titles of websites are generally set in roman without quotation marks and capitalized in title case. In a small departure from the 16th edition, CMOS 17 specifies that if the website has a print counterpart (such as the websites for newspapers and other publications), then it should be in italics. If it does not, then it should be treated normally. See the examples below:

The website of the Washington Post = Washington Post 
Wikipedia’s entry on the American Revolution Wikipedia

Structure:

Last name, First name. “Article Title.” Website Title. Month Date, Year of publication. Publication/Updated Month Date, Year OR Accessed Month Date, Year of access. URL.
