عَريف الشَـبكة
Explanation:
Narimane,

I have not come across any equivalent term that enjoys sufficient currency among Arabic-speaking techies as to preclude further coinage attempts.

In coining my suggestion, I looked for a parallel term, one that has "master" as a component. The term "master of ceremonies" came to mind. We call that "عريف الحفل". That is how "عريف الشبكة" suggested itself.

Other terms that suggest "mastery" are:

أستاذ، سَـيِّد، أمـير، شَـيخ، كبـير، عَظيم، وَلِـيّ، أمام

Whichever the choice may be, the proper gender ending ought to be applied.

Which one you adopt may in the end be a matter of style and taste. My choice? I like أمير & أميرة. I would not choose ولي, because the feminine would be ولية, which may have some untoward connotations, especially in Egypt.

Explanation:
A friend suggested this translation to the Asker, who kindly communicated it to me by e-mail. It means "site manager" or "site director." Since that in essence expresses the function of a "webmaster" (even better than "webmaster"), I thought it was a fine translation, and wanted to post it here to share it with everybody.

Thanks to Narimane and her friend.
