I'd like to put a song on my website. However, that song is a song which I purchased from the iTunes Store. Is it legal for me to put that song on my website?

No, it's not legal, not without a license from the owner of the rights to the track, usually the record company, to provide it on a web site, and such a license would be difficult to obtain and probably prohibitively expensive. Use of tracks for any purpose other than your own personal playback is also a violation of the terms of sale of the iTunes Store. If you want music on your web site, I'd suggest composing and performing your own, perhaps with GarageBand, or buying a track from one of the services that offer royalty-free licences.
Regards.
