Q:

How can I create a new Hotmail address?

A:

New Hotmail accounts cannot be created as of 2014. In 2013, Microsoft began to move existing Hotmail, Live and MSN accounts to its new service, Outlook.com. New users of Microsoft's free email services are given Outlook.com addresses.

Over 300 million people used Hotmail prior to the transition. Microsoft transitioned the addresses to Outlook.com over a six-week period in 2013, a transfer of 150 million gigabytes of data. Existing Hotmail users could choose to wait for an automatic transition to Outlook.com or move immediately to the new service. Existing users were able to keep their Hotmail.com, Live.com and MSN.com email addresses after the transition.
