Brief description about Site templates in SharePoint 2016

What is a SharePoint site template?

SharePoint site templates are prebuilt definitions designed around a particular business need. You can use these templates as they are to create your own SharePoint site, and then customize the site as much as you want. You're probably familiar with the default site templates, such as Team Site, Project Site, and Communities Site.

In addition to the default templates, you can create your own site template based on a site you've created and customized. This is a powerful feature that allows you to create a custom solution and then share that solution with your peers, the broader organization, or outside organizations. You can also package the site and open it in another environment or application such as Visual Studio and also customize it there.

Turning your customized site or business solution into a template is an extremely useful and very powerful capability. Once you start to package your solution as a template, you begin to realize the potential of SharePoint as a platform for business applications. The site template option makes all of this possible.

When you save your site as a template, you create a Web Solution Package, or WSP. A WSP is a CAB file that uses the solution manifest. The solution that you create is stored in the solutions gallery for the SharePoint site collection. Once you save the template, a solution file (.wsp) is created and stored in the solutions gallery where you can download or activate the solution.
