When citing information from a webpage, remember that in general, you need to cite specific pages, not the site as a whole. The most common situations will be webpages with an individual author or group author.  Some sample references you can model from APA's Academic Writer are below:

Webpage, group author, dated and undated

ACT Raising Safe Kids Program. (n.d.). About the ACT raising safe kids program. American Psychological Association.

American Nurses Association. (n.d.). Ethics and rights.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (2018, January 23). Flu vaccines work. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Webpage, individual author, dated

Hall-Flavin, D. K. (2016). What is passive-aggressive behavior? What are some of the signs? Mayo Clinic.

O'Hara, D. (2019, November 14). Study of human intelligence at center of Michael Gardner’s career. American Psychological Association.
