Dear SharePoint2013,
 
Nice name.
When you talk about-'being available as template (or webpart page for selection)', it is about page layout.

Go ahead and have a look at the following links. These links have good content which will help you in creating a page layout in no time.

After successful completion you should be able to get this as an option in your page library.

Enable this using 'manage content type' option at the page library, and you can create page based on this new layout.

Enjoy!!....

Hey SharePoint2013,

I believe there is some miscommunication here.

In your initial question, you posted that you have created a custom page with your layout and webpart zones. If you reread your sentence- it implies you are creating a page layout.

We have shared with you how you can use your page layout as the default page layout in MOSS 2007.

I am sharing a link which describes the steps to be follwed to add a page to SharePoint site and set it as default option, for creating new pages.

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-designer-help/add-a-page-to-a-sharepoint-site-HA010100907.aspx

I would request you to rethink/rephrase your question and tell us exactly what you want.

I would also like to clear one thing, if you  are using a page without webpart zones; you will not be able to create other pages with it as a template.

Please rethink what you are trying to achieve. (we might be beating a bush here to fix this issue, when there is none)

Enjoy!!
