The following example uses SPWebApplicationBuilder to create a new SharePoint Web application on port 999. The example creates and provisions a Web application, and then creates a new site collection and top-level site at the root.

Dim webAppBuilder As New SPWebApplicationBuilder(SPFarm.Local)
Dim myPort As Integer = 999
webAppBuilder.Port = myPort
Dim newApplication As SPWebApplication = webAppBuilder.Create()


Dim mySiteCollection As SPSite = newApplication.Sites.Add("/", "DOMAIN\UserAlias", "user@microsoft.com")

SPWebApplicationBuilder webAppBuilder = new SPWebApplicationBuilder(SPFarm.Local);
int myPort = 999;
webAppBuilder.Port = myPort;
SPWebApplication newApplication = webAppBuilder.Create();


SPSite mySiteCollection = newApplication.Sites.Add("/", "DOMAIN\\UserAlias", "user@microsoft.com");
