Creating a SharePoint Site

During the SharePoint installation, some initial sites get set up. However, once everything is set up and you have the right permissions, you can create a site in SharePoint. Each site can also include multiple subsites and pages that relate to the main site. You can create a subsite by using a SharePoint site template (New!). A SharePoint template provides the base functionality for the site, which you can add or remove features to customize it. SharePoint organizes templates into categories: Collaboration, Enterprise, Publishing, and Duet Enterprise. However, category and template availability vary based on your SharePoint edition.
