The American Heritage College Dictionary, 3rd Ed. (1993), lists it only
as "on-site," and as an adjective or adverb. It's probably one of those
compounds that will become solid some day. The same dictionary lists
boths "on-stage" and "onstage." The only way I can imagine this term
could be used as a noun, would be in a very casual, abbreviated
sentence, in which an "understood" word is left out. For example, you
may ask about the status of some on-site footage that was to be shot:
"Is the on-site ready yet?"
