I believe there is no error in creating Web Application. Based on this approach I am trying to help.

You need to create any Site Collection into it, Web Application cannot be opened directly. You can create a root level Site Collection.

As you are new to SharePoint 2013 you can go through Create a Web Application and Site Collection in SharePoint 2013

Let me know your thoughts.

  • i have specified, title, decsription, username(checked it too). But the result was: "sorry, this site hasnt been shared with you"
