Status: De facto

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=*.

Format

Websites URL usually follow this syntax :

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

Example

https://www.openstreetmap.org/help would be a good website URL. Its format is valid, it's a direct link to the wanted resource and a trustworthy website.

Best practice

  • Use as short an URL as possible. Choose simple URLs over complex URLs if they basically point to the same content. For example, use http://bahn.de/ instead of http://www.bahn.de/p/view/index.shtml, as both will get you to the front page. Websites are frequently redesigned, so strive for the most "robust" URL that works.
  • Include the scheme (http or https). www.openstreetmap.org/help would be incorrect, because the scheme is missing
  • Don't use URL shorteners. URLs such as https://goo.gl/x1fz3h can be misleading as they hide the real URL, can contain advertisements or even malware.
  • Take care when copying links from a search engine result. Search results URL also hide information about the final destination of the link, and are not meant for permanent linking. A very bad example would be https://encrypted.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s...
  • The HTTPS version of a website should be used when available, as it enhances security and privacy for users. This should look like this: https://openstreetmap.org/help
