    A web portal is most often one specially designed Web page that brings information together from diverse sources in a uniform way. Usually, each information source gets its dedicated area on the page for displaying information (a portlet); often, the user can configure which ones to display.
    A website, also written as web site, or simply site, is a set of related web pages typically served from a single web domain. A website is hosted on at least one web server, accessible via a network such as the Internet or a private local area network through an Internet address known as a uniform resource locator (URL). All publicly accessible websites collectively constitute the World Wide Web.

    Websites are for driving traffic, whereas web portals are for limiting traffic to a specific group of users. Most web portals require a user to log in, which allows the site to deliver more specific content and services based on who that user is. ... Portals can have anonymous public pages, as well as personalized access.

    A web portal is a customized website that immerses information from a wide array of sources in a consistent and uniformed manner. For example, web portals are served in the form of dashboards for company executives and managers.

    In short, a web portal is a web-based platform that provides employees, customers and suppliers with a single access point to information. A web portal can be used to provide the user with personalised information such as employee training, safety manuals or a customer profile.

    Website and portal both have a web-based interface; a website is the collection of web pages whereas a portal acts as a gateway to world wide web and provides many services.On the other hand, A portal is user-centric which means a user can probably provide information and data.

    Websites can be considered as one of the most popular solutions used in the web. You literally see them everywhere when searching for some information. One of the best examples for you to understand what a website is, is Google that is used by millions of people every day.

    web portals (generally known simply as portals), offer a wide number of services. These could be search navigation, notifications, services achieved with integrations such are those for task management, effective and convenient communication, etc. Also, web portals are often enriched with business intelligence (BI) tools that provide more opportunities for personalization. One more distinctive feature of portals is that access to certain information is provided only after a registration.

    Good differentiation of website vs. web portal. It's not easy for common people to know the difference between the website and web portals. You have given a good definition of both which can be really helpful for understanding the difference between website and web portals.

    Portals and websites are distinct entities which often overlap and complement each other. A web portal and website should be strongly linked together, but they should not replace each other. Website represents an organization to outside world, but a portal provides multiple user roles with a common access point.
