    abc.com has/have

    allrecipes.com has/have the information that I want.
    facebook.com has/have the information that I want.
    apple.com has/have the information that I want.

    Should I use has or have in the above examples?

    Thanks

    Re: abc.com has/have

    Use the singular, unless you are in the UK and are thinking about the company as a group of people.

    Re: abc.com has/have

    Even with our BrE propensity for considering teams, companies and governments as groups of people, I would use "has" in all those examples. I don't think of "facebook.com" as a company, I think of it a single, individual website and would therefore use the singular.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
