If providing information from a specific webpage, your reference citation would look like other sources:

     Author, A. (year). Title of web page. Retrieved from http://exacturlofwebpage

Your in-text citation would also be similar to other sources: (Author, year)

When mentioning the existence of a website in general in the text (and not using information from it), there is no need to provide a full citation. Just include the URL in parentheses:

     “To begin my research, I typed women and cancer into Google (”
