The website=* tag can be used to provide the full URL to the official website for the related features, be it a building, park railway or anything else.

For small format websites (designed for smaller displays, reduced bandwidth, or mobile touchscreens) use website:mobile=*.


Websites URL usually follow this syntax :

http(s)://(www.)domain.tld/(page)(?parameters)(#anchor), where parts in parenthesis may be optional.

Example would be a good website URL. Its format is valid, it's a direct link to the wanted ressource and a trustworthy website.
