configure confluence so that creating new page will be restricted by default

You need to make sure users are added into groups that do not allow them to have such access. 

Users might not have permission individually but might be a member of a specific group that has permissions to create pages.

Also when creating a space on confluence, Take a look in Browse > Space Admin > Permissions and make sure when creating the space, only the person who created it can only have full admin rights

By default all new pages are unrestricted, but take on the restrictions of their parent page and the permissions of the space.

There is no way to set restrictions when either the Create or create from template buttons are used. You can use an add-on to create pages with a specific restriction, but the the user will have to click a button or link that the add-on generates.

Other than creating your own plugin, you could use comalatech workflows to construct a workflow that triggers on page creation which can set editing and view restrictions. It could also be used to send an email to an admin. Of course, you could build a more complex workflow with it.

I have written some complex doc processes using this plugin, having it set page permissions at various states, depending upon a set of conditions. So entirely doable.
