Could you explain in a little more detail what it is that you'd actually like to do? It looks like you may think that "" is just a web site - it's not. Try reading these, and some of the links from them:

The chances are that you can either download the data that you want, or query a web service externally from to get the data that you're interested in. However, we can't help you unless you use a few more words explaining your goal.

Overpass Turbo might be able to help you. You can specific certain objects/tags, and certain regions.

I'm guessing raw Overpass more than turbo, but other than that yes:

May be i don't anderstand, but how can i take this request to my site? I just need to get info into my site about some region without using base, in online mode.

I would suggest the following:

After reading everything about overpass-api and overpass-turbo in the OSM wiki, try to create a simple query for a small area that delivers the data you need, for example only buildings. Try to create that query in overpass-turbo, maybe the wizard mode is helpful there.

When you succeeded in that, tell us your query there, and we can help you how to integrate in your website.

@One_of_coder Overpass API can return JSON which your website should be able to parse.

@stephan75 "Reading everything" is slightly exaggerated :)
