    On the Website / In the Website

    If I am referring to a website, which would be the proper preposition - on or in - to describe the information displayed? I know that the correct one is "on" when talking about a sheet of paper in the case of a newspaper, book, etc., but I am not so sure about a website. I suppose that the proper option would be "on", since we are talking about texts "on" a screen and not "in" (into or within) the screen, but I would appreciate your expertise as natives.
