This article discusses some of the fundamental challenges facing website historiography. A definition of ‘website’is outlined, and the specific nature of the archived website is identified. With this as a stepping stone some methodological consequences of the characteristics of the website are discussed, eg. the creation of a register. In conclusion it is argued that the nature of the website forces the web historian to re-conceptualise well-known methodological issues within media historiography.
