MLA citiations for internet cites are as follows:

Encyclopedia Mythica. 2004. 13 May 2004 http://www.pantheon.org/.

 

Document from a Web Site [5.9.1]

Sherman, Chris. "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About URL." SearchEngineWatch. Ed. Danny Sullivan. 24 Aug. 2004. 4 Sept. 2004 http://searchenginewatch.com/searchday/article.php/3398511.

This is from the MLA Sourcebook. Internet sites are actually quite simple to cite, as they require minimal information and the internet address itself will take the reader straight to the source you quote.  Sometimes the site will not give an author for the internet article published, or even an editor.  In that case, it is acceptable not to include one in the citation.
