Create SharePoint site collection (SharePoint 2013)

This activity creates a new top-level Web site in the current web application.

Note: By defining managed paths, you can specify which paths in the URL namespace of a Web application are used for site collections. You can specify that one site collection or more than one site collection exists at a specified path. For example, an explicit path of hr indicates that the URL http://server/hr is a site collection, whereas a wildcard path of "sites" indicates that child URLs of http://server/sites/, such as server/sites/team, are site collections. To add a new URL Path go to the Define Managed Paths page (Central Administration > Application Management > Define Managed Paths).
