Definition: Content Type HUB is a Site Collection in SharePoint, where we create and manage content types and publish those content types to use in other web applications.

We can create content types in content type HUB and publish them to use in other web application. Creating content types in a central location (HUB) becomes very easy to manage and publish the content types.

Process to create HUB:
