# Information Portal


The Information Portal is a large Internet resource for providing detailed information about certain subjects. The Information Portal, unlike a simple topic site, contains tools for user interaction, thematic mailers, search, as well as the visitors are allowed to communicate between each other, for example, in a forum or chat room.

Information portals are typically created so that anyone could receive an answer to his question on certain subjects, having used information from a site or having asked other visitors.

City information portals containing news, a weather, a poster, a traffic schedule, a bulletin board, a forum, a catalogue of enterprises, and other necessary information are one of the most widespread examples of an information portal.
