My Sites require that a site collection exist at the web application root (which is displayed as / in the user interface). Without this, you will receive a message that states that there is no site collection at the root when you try to enable self-service site creation for the web application. Because we recommend that you use a dedicated web application to host My Sites, you should use the root path for the My Site host collection unless you have a specific requirement to create the site collection deeper in the uniform resource locator (URL) path.

Create and choose

My site host

In the Web Site Address section, select the URL where you want this site collection created. Generally, you should use the default path (which is displayed as / in the user interface), which is the root of the web application.
