Authenticated Sites and Custom Web Portal Development

Salesforce comprises of majorly Self-Service, Customer, and Partner Web Portal Development. Beyond that, Salesforce sells licenses for completely custom portals. And you just dont get portals for your customers and for your partners but also host websites on the system.

Adding more feathers to this is that salesforce also ensures your company’s visibility on the internet so that whenever an internet user is searching for some keywords that match your portal, it can be viewed from the search engine.

Sometimes visitors come and join the portal. There shall be a system to authenticate them and this is where the concept of authentication comes as a portal. Making a one-click mouse portal is easy but then there are many portals which require more than just a click and hence custom made portals become a necessity.

There are customer web portals, partner web portals, self-service web portals, publically visible Salesforce.com sites, and an entire range of custom portal solutions only to cater to the lastest demands of the consumer who want their own data based management system.

In general, there are 4 general categories of Salesforce.com Portals:
