Question ID: 374620
Using the company name as a search term, is there an engine devoted to
providing just the "home page url" for that company, rather than all
the links in which the company name appears?

Alta Vista comes 'close' with their "URL:" qualifier.  But I'm looking
for a quick, simple way to determine IF any given company has a
website and what it's actual URL is.

Try Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" searching. It usually finds the official ws.
