Creation of web application in SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 is almost same. Follow below steps:

Before that make sure you have farm level administration as well as you are a member of the local administrator group.

- Open SharePoint 2013 administration, then click on Application Management.

- Then this will open the Application Management page, there under Web Applications click on Manage web applications as shown in the fig below:

- This will open the Manage web application page, there click on New as shown in the fig below:

- The above step will open the "Create New Web Application" dialog box which is similar to SharePoint 2010.

- In that page, Select whether you want to create a new IIS web site or not, then in the Security Configuration section, you can select whether you want to allow anonymous access or not, whether you want to use SSL or not.

In the Authentication Type, Select which type of Authentication you want.

In the Sign in Page URL, you can select whether you want to use the default sign in page or you want a Custom Sign in Page.

Then give the Public URL, and it is better to create a new Application Pool. Then it will ask you a Service account credentials.

After that give the Database server details, like server name, database name and better to chose Windows Authentication mode.

Then Click on OK.

This will create the new web application.
