Please do not strip the titles off of website links leaving only a bare URL. If a reader wished to see the bare URL with no hint of a title, all he or she would have to do is hover over the website name and the bare URL would appear in the lower left corner. Also, when a URL gets broken, it is easier to find the new URL if the person fixing the broken link can Google the name of the page. The Family History Research Wiki Manual of Style shows that bare URL links without a name are considered "incorrect."
Finally, ponder the examples of how website links are usually cited in Wikipedia.com to see how to do it in a classier way.
