You're being a bit vague on a few questions.
You mean 'own the website' as in who is the owner of the domain? or the design?
if your client registered the domain, then I don't know why you would have any claim to that.
As for the design, maybe. But ifyou got paid for the design, I don't see why you would have any rights to it. You did the work, got paid, move on.
I suspect there's a bit more to the story than what's being told. But if the idea is basically you did some work for a client and now have a falling out, I think the basic starting point is that you don't 'own' any part of the website.
