How is it correct to say:

What do you think about adding "NameOfProduct" on ProductHunt.com?

I never know if I should use on / in / at.

  • This question can be reopened after you clarify what "ProductHunt" is. (I can't tell if it's a game, an application, a class in an object-oriented design, or something else.) – J.R. Mar 7 at 0:51
  • ProductHunt is actually the name of a website. While I agree the OP should make that clear, I think a quick Google would have revealed it. – SamBC Mar 7 at 9:52
  • @SamBC Questions should be clear without a Google search. How do you know the author is talking about the website and not the app or the API for it? I edited the title to reflect “website” but I would like that to be confirmed by the author before taking the question off hold – ColleenV Mar 7 at 12:28
  • @ColleenV Fair enough. – SamBC Mar 7 at 12:35

It looks like ProductHunt is some sort of collection or catalogue, but the key here is that you are using add. Most of the time with add, the right preposition is to. You particularly add something to a list, or catalogue, or collection. If you used put instead of add, then on or in might be appropriate.

On the other hand, on might be seen as appropriate because the act of adding would might be done "on the website". By the same token, in might be appropriate if the act of adding would done "in the app". To, however, is safe as long as the audience understands that ProductHunt is a collection or catalogue.
