Web portal

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

An internet portal or web portal is a website used to enter the Internet.[1] It can also be used to describe a website to enter certain parts of the Internet, like Wikipedia's Community Portal. A web portal can be used to provide the user with personalised information such as employee training, safety manuals or a customer profile. A web portal can also be used to enhance the collaboration of information and improve the way employees, customers and suppliers interact with your business.

A web portal is capable of handling both structured and unstructured information. For users, it provides ease of navigation, and for enterprises it provides significant cost savings, improved productivity and a way to establish a long-lasting relationship with users.

Many ISPs have their own portals, but there are many other portals by other companies, like Microsoft's MSN, Ask.com, and Yahoo!.
