    Nothing - it's just that everyone I know logs on.

    I usually find information at a website.

    I think one could either log on to a website or log in to a website. I usually log in.

    I think either is logical, as long as one is consistent.

    If one logs in, one logs out.

    If one logs on, one logs off. - I think.

    Anyway, I would say log in to website.

    Re: on a website or in a website

    I agree with Buggles, but I wouldn't argue with Proesl. (I log on and log off, or, sometimes, as with this one, I log in and out.)

    Thank you all for your input and advice.

    Seems consistency is the key.
