    I would use "at" but I don't think "on" would be misunderstood or incorrect.

    Is "on www.XXX.com" acceptable in BrE?

    It would be understandable so I guess that means acceptable, but "at" is much more common.

    I'd use on for the web in general. For a individual website, you will see different prepositions used- I think you could use either her.
