Website vs. Web Portal

A Website is a location on the Internet which is publically accessible with a web address. It is a collection of webpages, images, videos which are addressed relative to a common URL. Websites are about driving traffic and being seen.

A Web Portal is a gateway to the Internet. It’s not only a website but also you can search the web, online shopping, and lot to do. Portals are about limiting traffic to the right set of users and providing services.

Portals are also accessed using a web browser and a specific URL, but the content here is login protected and user specific.
