1)Instanceable Portlet
 Instanceable portlet are those portlet that can be added more than one time on a single page. Ex- Asset Publisher.

2)Non - Instanceable Portlet
Non - Instanceable portlet are those that can be added only single time on a page. Ex- Loan Calculator.

We can embedded both type of portlet in web content by using portlet id and instance Id.
