I am using SharePoint 2013, is it possible to create a Second-level site collection by Powershell?
I mean, a Site Collection (not substite) child of another Site-Collection.

    No, the model is SPFarm -> SPWebApp -> SPSite -> SPWeb. Where a SPSite always has a root SPWeb and SPWebs can contain children SPWebs. – Sam Sussman May 5 '14 at 13:36

    Site collections can not be children of other site collections. You can make it look like a child URL-wise with managed paths or HNSC though :) – Robert Lindgren May 5 '14 at 13:37
  • @RobertLindgren and is it possible to have more Site collections under a web app? – Nk SP May 5 '14 at 14:08
  • @NkSP Certainly, by using the two techniques in my previous comment – Robert Lindgren May 5 '14 at 14:10

    Yupp, of course you do. That's why you need to first create a managed path for it, or use Host Named Site Collection as I have said before – Robert Lindgren May 5 '14 at 14:40

Solved using the managed paths as here described: Define managed paths

    Just remember that you have a supported limit of 20 Managed Paths per web application (for Path Named Site Collections) and 20 Managed Paths per farm (for Host Named Site Collections) – Anders Rask May 6 '14 at 11:03
