Things to Consider before Choosing a WordPress Theme for Hosting Business
Although the design of a website is very important, but when choosing a theme, especially for a web hosting company website, you should put the functionality on the first place. What I mean by that? Just read along, I will try to explain.
First of all, you will need client management software that allows you to take care of billing and support easily. I highly recommend using WHMCS, one of the best client management solutions for online businesses, which will help you handle everything from signup to account termination.
WHCMS is a powerful support and automation software which support recurring invoicing, integrates with all major hosting control panels (cPanel, Plesk, SolusVM, etc.), offer easy domain management, comes with built-in help desk, support any type of currency and integrates with over 50 payment gateways including PayPal and 2Checkout, it is fully customizable and developer friendly. WHCMS is the ultimate tool you need to start and manage your web hosting company.
But how comes WHMCS is the picture? Well, the idea is that you will need multiple software and tools to run your business. You will be building your website with WordPress, you will manage your clients with WHCMS and your servers will be powered by cPanel. Instead of jumping around from one system to another, you can choose a WordPress theme, which integrates with WHMCS, so this will give you the option to create your website as well manage your clients.
In the following I will show you few WordPress themes that integrate with WHCMS and some that are just simple WordPress themes, specially built for hosting companies.
