    Hello,

    Is "Hacking" as in hacking a website, or as it is technically called "cracking" a website considered illegal in the United States? If so, what law/act/article says so? Thanks

    A website IS on a computer - a server.

    I didn't read Aaron's link, but understand that web pages don't just exist on the ether.

    What crime has been committed will depend on what happened and where it occurred. We can point to all manner of state and federal laws, but it might not be what you want. Do a little Google searching and I am sure you will find what you need.
