Summary of this tutorial:

Tools mentioned in this video:

Sublime Text:

FileZilla:

Start by creating a blank file and add the text from our video or copy it from our written article and save it with the .php extension.

Then connect to your hosting provider using FTP and go to your site's wp-content/themes directory to find your theme's folder, open it, and upload your new file into your theme's folder.

This will allow you to use the template when you create a new page on your site even if the template does not show anything at the moment.

For displaying your content the simplest method for starting would be to copy your current theme's page.php's content and pasting it into your new template.
