- Creating a new SharePoint 2013 site based on the Team Site template.
- Enter a name and description of the new site, in the Title and Description text boxes.
- Type a unique site name that is going to be used in the URL Name text box.
- Choose the Team Site template for the site by clicking on the Team Site template on the Collaboration tab.
- Observe that Team Site is not the only present template option. You can select other templates, too. Irrespective of the template you begin with, you can develop the site to add SharePoint functionality as you feel fit with.
- Select whether to use the same permissions & privileges as the parent site or use unique permissions by choosing the appropriate radio button.

Get to understand the Team site :
- Select whether you wish to display this site positioning on the top link navigation of the parent site or not by choosing the Yes or No radio button.
- The top link navigation is the menu present across the top of the site.
- Select whether you like to display the same top link navigation as the parent site or not by choosing the Yes or No radio button.
- Click to select the option: Create to create the site.The new site will be displayed in the browser.
- A SharePoint site created using the Team Site template is often referred to as simply a team site, as in, “Check out my team site.”
- In case you want to impress your audience, you can opt to say, “Check out my SharePoint site based on the Team Site template,”
- Each SharePoint site is contained within another SharePoint site in a hierarchy.
At the top of the hierarchy is a special type of site called a Site Collection. Creating and administering a Site Collection takes special permissions. Every site within the Site Collection is called a Subsite. Both types of websites are often just referred to as a website or site.
The site you just created is a Subsite of whatever site you were in when you created it. There are no differences between using a site that is a Site Collection and a site that is a Subsite, as such. To users, both types of sites look and act the same. The differences lie in the navigation, security settings, and features.
