    A portal is generally a vehicle by which to gain access to a multitude of 'services'. A web site is a destination in itself. But both often overlapping and complementing each other. A portal finds the information for the user whereas on a website the user has to search for it. A portal displays all the content in one place while information is usually dispersed across a website. A portal uses a consistent framework for presenting the information in a standard way. The services available through the portal are all designed to fit within a standard portal framework. This consistency makes it easier to learn and use these services. On the other hand, there is a learning curve for users of typical website to get familiar with all the browsing capabilities. The information presented in a typical web site is usually general and intended for a wider audience.
