What do you call someone who owns/runs a website?

Hi there,

I am writing a little bio about myself for a website I run and wanted to title the section up as something like “About the…” but need some ideas on what to call myself!

Can anyone suggest some words/titles of someone that owns/runs/designs websites? I’m thinking of the obvious, “webmaster” but wanted something a bit more different/quirky.

If anyone has any ideas, that would be great!

Thanks

Personal Opinion. Take with appropriate amounts of salt grains
‘quirky’ titles just make me think you don’t like your job. “I’m not a janitor, i’m a hygiene technician!”
Either your title becomes eye-roll material, or you’ve made it so quirky that noone actually understands what your title means.

The first word that pops into mind for most web site owners is ‘Wally’ :slight_smile:

If you developed and ran the site then Web Developer sounds better to me than the old fashioned webmaster.

I remember website owners used to refer to themselves as “Webmaster” but I think that looks pretty dated now. There are lots of options and I think it depends on exactly what your site is and what you’re doing. But if it’s purely a title to reflect you are the owner of the website, I’d just keep it simple: Site Owner or Website Administrator (I quite like the latter, it’s more understated).

You could also be a bit informal and jokey: Website Emperor or (e.g.) Site Overlord @ example.com

Mostly you won’t have to use the title. I wouldn’t put it on the homepage or anywhere, just in correspondence. People generally don’t care who owns it, more likely help from some specific department.

Two obvious ideas in mind:

  • Webmaster
  • Website owner
