Create official facebook page to represent website

Is it possible to create official facebook page to represent website?

In Google Plus I was able to verify I was owner of the website thus making it an official page.

Is it possible to do the same in facebook?

There are unofficial pages created by other people of my website. I would like to create an official page for the site that I control.

There is an option in the Page Info settings where you can note the official brand your Page is about, but you wouldn't need to set that. The people who are doing unofficial versions of your brand would.

If a Page exists about your business you can try to claim it by Reporting it. Then FB will ask you to e-mail and send some documentation to prove ownership of the business.

Initially, I did report it to facebook but to no avail. I don't think they understand or regard it as a problem. Reporting the page as an "impostor" only seems to work for accounts not for pages.

How does one create a facebook page that officially represents a web site - where there is an verified link between facebook and the web site.

In the case of Google plus, I dropped a file in the root directory and Google verified ownership that way.

Is there something like that on facebook?

The same person who created the facebook page also has a twitter account claiming to represent my site.

What am I missing?

If there is no way to verify site ownership, how would I know, for example, if the following page is operated by Webmasterworld?

https://www.facebook.com/pages/WebmasterWorld/345647845543263

You will notice on the report page button, there is no "report an impostor" option.

There's no way to link the FB page to your website like Google+.

I've found the act of claiming pages as my own to be hit-and-miss. Sometimes if I report a page as a duplicate I've had results. Other times I've had to call the offending company on the phone and harass them to either close the page or to link to my page as the official page.
