Building a web portal. Why Do You Need it?
How do ordinary users search for information on the Internet? They read news on one website, chat and communicate with others on another service, etc. Do you know that all needed info may be found on a single web service? Yes, web portals are special platforms where all the necessary information and all useful services are in one place.
Web portal is a website with convenient and user-friendly navigation, thus you can quickly find the needed section. The main distinctive feature here is the ability to have all in one place.
There are several types of web portals:
- Horizontal web portal. This is a website for general use. It covers many topics and interests of a wide audience. As well as it includes different services and functions.
- Vertical web portal. This is a niche website that covers very narrow topics. Here you can provide services for users with certain interests. Vertical web portals are focused only on several particular topics.
Vertical web portals are subdivided into:
- corporate portals (modern websites created for companies and organizations to provide the necessary information for employees and business partners);
- public web portals (websites designed to inform visitors about recent official news or legislation changes as well as to present specific information for separate groups of people).

Web portal development process
It’s not a simple task to create a web portal. It includes the complex cooperation of a client and our team. We provide the personal team of developers for each client and perform a deep analysis of your business before creating a web portal. The whole work of the Intelteck company is divided into several stages:
- First stage: our experts get information about the client’s business, the product or service he\she sells, the available audience (big or little, age, gender, location). It is very important to determine and specify the most important details about a business. Depending on it we choose the type of web portal to create, its design and functionality.
- Second stage: This is the most important phase of development that requires a lot of responsibility and concentration. At this stage we work on functionality, choose the most appropriate services and features of the web portal.
- Third stage: Intelteck’s copywriters write original content for the web portal’s pages to draw the attention of customers.
- Fourth stage: We refer the finished work to the QA-department to check the quality and exclude possible bugs and mistakes.
- Fifth stage: We conduct training on how to use and administer the web portal. If necessary, we can administer your web portal on our own.
