For this Siteturner roundup, we gathered together a few of the best WordPress web hosting themes. If you’re a hosting company startup, or a hosting reseller looking to save money on your site’s design (and take advantage of everything WHMCS has to offer), one of these themes will be a good fit.
Chances are you arrived here from Google after searching for WordPress themes that support WHMCS, so we won’t bore you with a lengthy explanation of what that is and what it does. If you don’t already know what it is, you can find out more about it here. Beyond the standard features you might be looking for – pricing tables, domain search forms, WPML support – all the themes on this list are fully integrated with WHMCS via a bridge plugin.
We selected the themes by hand, our choices based on the WHMCS requirement and design quality. Astute readers will note that every selection can be found in the ThemeForest marketplace. Though we are Envato affiliates, we promise you this isn’t merely a shill – these really are the cream of the crop, in our humble opinion.
In addition to its fantastic, modern design (that nails the hosting niche aesthetic), ArkaHost takes the number one spot thanks to its laundry list of features: few of the other themes on our list offer such versatility.
For starters, there’s six distinct demos available for install, each with its own sleek, clean design — three for web hosting companies, and three more that work great for general corporate use. Visual Composer is included free, providing code-free page building. Create, edit and manage layouts easily. The back-end options panel is packed with useful settings, giving you control over almost every element of the theme, and LayerSlider is included along with 28 pre-built sliders.
WHMSC is supported, the developers have integrated the popular WooCommerce plugin, for building an online storefront. The theme is well-documented, and also scores high points for customer support — the team is helpful and prompt, leaving Arka Host withan almost perfect review score on the ThemeForest marketplace.More Info/Download
The modern simplicity of the FlatHost theme went a long way to securing it a top spot on our list. The flat, contemporary design and colorful iconography are well implemented, and the theme is fully responsive. The option to use FlatHost in a one-page or multiple page layout is a nice addition.
Secondary features like the drag & drop builder and WPML support add more value. The theme supports both a Domain search form and Zompim live chat compatibility (and is the only theme on the list with the Zompim feature). Of course, like most newer hosting themes for WordPress, FlatHost is fully integrated with WHMCS.
Built on Twitter’s excellent Bootstrap framework and easy to install and setup. Recommended.More Info/Download
Active Host is another web hosting theme for WordPress that boasts clean, flat design. It’s seamlessly integrated with WHMCS (with its own custom design), ensuring a flawless user experience.
This one includes the page builder plugin Beaver Builder, an alternative to the more widely used Visual Composer. Domain lookup is built-in, and plenty of options are provided on the backend for tweaking colors, fonts, and other elements.More Info/Download
Seven Host is a feature-rich hosting theme for WordPress with a fully integrated WHMCS bridge. Visual Composer is bundled free, to help you build and edit layouts without digging into any code, and the theme is translation ready with WPML support.
Retina-ready and responsive, Seven Host will look great and provide an excellent experience regardless of the device your visitors and potential clients view it on. This is a very flexible theme, thanks to the inclusion of Visual Composer and the extensive theme options panel giving you control over most of the theme’s elements.
The theme is Bootstrap based and, though it’s well documented and fairly easy to use to begin with, comes with a one-click install option for fast, painless installation.More Info/Download
Alaska has sold a ton of copies since its release, partly due to an on-target design that’s perfect for hosting companies, and partly due to the wealth of features and functionality it packs in.
The usual freebies are bundled, Visual Composer and Revolution Slider (for creating an impressive homepage slideshow), and like the other themes on our list, it supports the WHMCS-Bridge plugin.
Other features like pricing tables, a portfolio post type, WMPL compatibility for translation, SEO optimization, and WooCommerce integration. These features round out and already strong package and make Alaska one of the best WordPress hosting themes you’re likely to come across.More Info/Download
You might not find anything particularly ground-breaking about the HTML5/CSS3-based Hostify theme, but it doesn’t need to be: the designers score big points for the clean, minimal design, and everything you need to build a functional site for you web hosting company is included.
This responsive theme is integrated with WHMCS and translation ready. Font Awesome, Google fonts, and Superfish for dropdowns are all integrated. The developer has included six preset color schemes to choose from out of the box, just in case that lovely, pastel salmon color on the demo isn’t doing it for you.More Info/Download
MegaHost is one of the best-selling hosting themes for WordPress on the ThemeForest marketplace. Despite that it’s one of the older selections on our list, the developers have kept their product updated and fresh. The classic design is familiar and intuitive, but incorporates enough contemporary design trends to prevent feeling at all dated.
MegaHost is retina-ready & responsive, and theme comes with eight skins, twenty-six background patterns, and three layout styles. It’s built with Bootstrap and, of course, fully supports WHMCS.
Revolution Slider is bundled free (can you believe it?), and the theme integrates MailChimp, Contact Form 7, and WP Google Maps.More Info/Download
HostMe is another popular option. It certainly looks the part – bright colors pop off the page, and there’s even a fun, cartoon mascot featured on the homepage slider. (Hosting companies sure do love their cutesy cartoon mascots!)
This one has so many bells & whistles to offer that there’s no way we can succinctly summarize them here. Suffice to say, it’ll have everything you’re looking for, and then a ton of stuff you haven’t even though about yet and may never need. It’s SEO optimized, responsive, and easy to customize and install.
Have a look at the full list of features on the theme’s detail page. There’s about 100 of them.More Info/Download
At Siteturner, there’s nothing we like more than a content-first, ultra-minimal design. Extraneous gimmicks and flashy nonsense is stripped away in favor of a cool, slick user experience and speedy performance. Great design ought to be invisible. The RealHost theme succeeds, wisely cutting the fat to deliver a lean, professional product.
The theme is fully responsive and supports the easy to use BxSlider and VPS sliders. One-click demo install included. Site owners can create their own color schemes from unlimited colors, and take advantage of over 350 integrated Google Fonts. And, yes, RealHost is WHMCS compatible. Sweet!More Info/Download
OneHost takes an approach opposite to that of the minimalistic RealHost theme, and the result is a visually striking, one-page style WordPress theme with goregous full-screen imagery and impressive CSS3 animations/transitions. Users have plenty of choice: ten different homepage layouts are included with the demo content file.
Visual Composer and Slider Revolution are bundled free, and the extensive options panel gives you control over pretty much every element. Not a bad choice if you intend to do a lot of customization and branding, but prefer not to get your hands dirty in the code.
OneHost is SEO friendly, retina-ready and Bootstrap compatible.More Info/Download
We think that the understated design of the NewHost theme and its older, 3D icons have probably caused some to overlook it in favor of the more ubiquitous flat design and iconography.
Easy to customize, a breeze to install, and well documented.More Info/Download
