A WebResource is a representation of a verified website or domain.

It contains the canonical ID of a site or domain, the URL or domain name, and a list of owners. Note that the owners list always includes the authenticated user, because the only people who can access a WebResource are authenticated users who are owners of that site or domain.

For a list of methods for this resource, see the end of this page.
