Halacha - Website on Shabbat
Submitted by Yosef  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

If it is purely a Torah website like Revach, than there is no more problem than making any machine that the buyer may possibly use on Shabbos. Since the site runs without any imput from its creator it is not the responsibility of the manufacturer if a melacha is done on Shabbos.

However a Jewish website that also offers items for sale would not conduct sales on Shabbos because it is forbidden to derive benefit from commerce that was conducted on Shabbos, even if no aveirah was committed by the seller.
