    "In a website" or "on a website"?

    Can I say something like "what can I do in your website"?
    I know "on a website" is more commonly used, but is it ungrammatical to use "in a website"?
    Million thanks for answering my question!

    As far as I'm concerned, at least, 'in' doesn't work with the word 'site' at all.

    Your example is much better expressed with "on". Still, if you do a Google search for "in this|a|the website" you'll find many examples.

    In short, as is usually the case with our wonderful prepositions, it depends on the context.
