Yes you can run a website while working in a full time job but you have to be sure that the website's business is in no way similar to the Company's business in which you work as then it shall be regarded as breach of Non-Compete clause. Further you shall not solicitate any other employees working in the same company as that you leas to breach of Non-Solicitation clause.
