What's the best word for "website" in Latin?

Salvete omnes,

The subject of the post asks it all: What's the best word for "website" in Latin? I know about some words for link, such as nexus, but I can't recall coming across a word for an entire site.

locus interreticus, pagina interretialis (http://facweb.furman.edu/~dmorgan/lexicon/silva.htm)
vel situs interretialis
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.

gratias tibi ago! Also, that looks like an amazing resource - I had no clue it existed.

Salvete!

Traupman translates "web site" as "situs (-us m) interretialis" (in his "Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency").

We should remember David Morgan - he passed away recently. His work was inspirational.
I run various Latin sites, including Schola and the Latinum YouTube channel - the main portal to these is http://latinum.org.uk
