What is a website ? What is a Web Portal ? WebPortal is a central repository to store the informaion. It is used for the collaboration of the content, ing, Searching the required content, Uploading the Documents. Depending the user, there are various access permissions like full control, read-only, limited access. A starting point for people surfing the internet. It functions like a gateway, providing links to various sorts of websites across different locations. A Web site or service that offers a broad array of resources and services, such as , forums, search engines, etc. We have only the limited permissions to modify the content in the website.
