Mono itself support both 'Web site' and 'Web project' well.

The issue is that MonoDevelop does not support 'Web site'.

Of course, you do not need to use MonoDevelop to develop your project.  My
first Mono site was built using 'Web site' on Web Developer Express years

It seems to be a common misconception that you need to use MonoDevelop to
develop Mono apps.  MonoDevelop is just a .NET IDE that runs on Linux, OS X,
and Windows.  You can develop for .NET without using MonoDevelop at all
using MonoDevelop.

Similarly, you can develop using any other .NET IDE and then deploy the
results on Mono anywhere that Mono runs.

It is ideal to develop and test on the platform on which you will deploy of
course but the fact that MonoDevelop does not support 'Web site' does not
stop you from using Mono.
