Beautiful, Free Themes

Offer your clients high-quality, free & secure WordPress themes from talented creators around the world. New themes are added every week.

One-Click Installer

User-friendly, simple & fast WordPress auto-installer. Much quicker and easier than Softaculous or Installatron. Can replace or run along side competing auto-installers.

Reduce Support Tickets

To reduce WordPress related support tickets we provide links to documentation & tutorials for WordPress.

Increase Security

We set secure default WordPress usernames, passwords and database table prefixes.

Clear & Intuitive

Descriptive cPanel dashboard icon and title so users don't have to search or ask support techs where to install WordPress.

Quality & Security Control

We only approve themes that successfully pass our manual quality & security review process (we adhere to the official theme security guidelines).

Latest WordPress

Only the latest, stable version of WordPress installed. The plugin downloads WordPress directly from the repository and doesn't modify any core files.

WP Admin SSO

After successful installation users can automatically sign in to their WordPress Admin Dashboard.

WHMCS Integration

We provide a hook file to integrate with WHMCS billing system and automatically install WordPress on new accounts. We also provide code to add a shortcut in the Quick Shortcuts panel of WHMCS.


Now available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Korean. Themely will automatically detect your users locale settings and load the relevant language strings. Join the translation to suggest a new language.

Bundle Plugins

Bundle up to 5 plugins with each WordPress installation. Plugins can be self-hosted or from the official WordPress Plugin Repository.

WordPress Manager

Automatically detect & allow management of existing WordPress sites on accounts using the default cPanel WordPress Manager. The RPM-based WordPress cPAddon must be installed to enable this feature.
UPDATE WordPress Manager will be deprecated in cPanel/WHM version 92; we're building a replacement to manage WordPress instances.
