What is a web portal?

The non-local networks were been first used by the “Advanced Research Projects Agency” of Pentagon (the defense ministry of the state) in 1960.
By designing the network, the main goal was to connect each computer to two other stations, so the sent packet messages could be transmitted in various ways.
After a few times, this network changed gradually and shaped a new means that was the modern Internet.
At that time, there was nobody to believe that the whole network will be grew too quickly to be moderated that difficult and there is a necessary need to specialist and expert managers. The most important reason was the free space on the web!
But today, the “World Wide Web” theory is making all the users feel free to access the Internet without the requirement of technical information.
In the other word, a complicated mission with an easy usability that makes the user mixed up between “Web” and “Internet” as two separated means.The essential goal of “WWW” theory was the easy and simple access to online content and services by using a specified application with special capabilities.
So the production of these applications was a great step toward online utopia and classification of services and context on the net.
The enhancement of Internet and web-based services is occurring too quickly that it is impossible for everyone to remember even the one tenth of current active website names because he have to remember daily more than 20,000 new domain names.
The ease of use and friendly application environment are the best reasons for each user to take part in using the network services. So it is not logical to expect a user to try surfing hundreds of websites to access various and different services or register for divers providers and be concerned about saving the privacy information of each registration.
So the web, reached to an unwanted new level that is called to be “Web Portal” era.So I think that if we desire to result a new declaration of “web portal”, we have to translate it, word by word...
