AP Updates ‘Web site’ to ‘website’

It’s official – The Associated Press has changed Web site to website.

I’m relieved. At the office and on this blog I follow AP style. But my fingers naturally want to type website. It’s so much easier. Now there will be no more worrying about the capital letter or the space.

The new entry on website has been added to the AP Stylebook Online and will be included in the updated text version.

The entry reads:

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.
