The following code example uses the SelfServiceCreateSite method to create a new site collection based on the STS site template.

Using oSiteCollection As New SPSite("http://" + System.Environment.MachineName)
    Dim oSiteCollectionSelfServ As SPSite = oSiteCollection.SelfServiceCreateSite("Absolute_URL", "Title", "Description", Locale_ID, "STS", "Owner_User_Name", "Owner_Display_Name", "Owner_E-mail", "Contact_User_Name", "Contact_Display_Name", "Contact_E-mail")

    oSiteCollectionSelfServ.Dispose()
End Using

using(SPSite oSiteCollection = new SPSite("http://" + System.Environment.MachineName))
{
    SPSite oSiteCollectionSelfServ = oSiteCollection.SelfServiceCreateSite("Absolute_URL", "Title",
    "Description", Locale_ID, "STS", "Owner_User_Name",
    "Owner_Display_Name",  "Owner_E-mail",
    "Contact_User_Name", "Contact_Display_Name", "Contact_E-mail");
