Create a custom MySite host template in SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013

Here I will show you how to create new mysites host. Once you apply this mysite site host template, all new mysite will use this as a tempate to create a mysite

  1. Create a new Mysite host.
    a. Open Central admin > Application management > Create new site collection
    0105
    b. Provider Name, URL path, Select template as “My site host” and a site collection admin > Click OK
    0106
    c. Now you can make the required modification(e.g. custom master page, custom list, library, webpart, etc) in this mysite template.

  2. Update this Mysite Host site in User profile service application
    a. Open Central admin > Application management > Manage service application > User profile service application
    0107
    b. Under My site settings select “Setup My sites” > In my site host select the new mysite host we just created e.g. http://portal/sites/host > Click ok
    C. Now all new my Site collections will use this as Host template
