Websites in GTA IV
This is a list of in-game websites accessible on the Internet in Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned, and The Ballad of Gay Tony. These are not real websites but most of the domains are owned by Rockstar Games and redirects to the official GTA IV website in real life. The Wikipedia links in brackets refer to the real life websites it is believed the game's websites parody.
Note: Unlike the real-world Internet, all sites whose URLs are entered manually must include "www." otherwise they will not work. This wiki indexes the websites with the www. omitted for clarity.

News sources and other useful information
The game's traditional news websites (discounting LCPD's website and the secret blog) change as the story progresses, many of their news articles documenting missions Niko does in the game and providing backstory or aftermath to those missions. Occasionally a friend may also alert Niko to a news story appearing on one of the sites.

Social networking and media hosting
Niko is unable to use social networking sites, only communicating through his standard email. These are mostly meant as comedy pieces, but surfing them carefully enough reveals information about two characters Niko eventually meets, Eddie Low and Alexandra Chilton.

Online shopping websites
