Technology is being used here as a noun adjunct (also called an attributive noun), which is to say, a noun being used as an adjective to describe another noun.
When nouns are used this way, they are used in the singular. Hence while a book shop will probably have more than one book, it is still a "book shop", not a "books shop".
This is even the case with nouns like scissors and trousers that are normally always plural: "Scissor sharpener", "trouser press", etc.
And hence you would want "technology websites" here.
I can't quite decide whether it qualifies as an uncountable noun or simply an adjective to describe the type of website. Either way, technology remains singular in this usage.
Consider there are many websites, discussing many types of technology - you would still say
There are many technology websites, covering many aspects of many different technologies.
I've intentionally used many each time there - normally you would vary your counts & comparisons, but just to show which aspect we are counting each time
many websites [not technologies]
but we close with a countable version,
