Support » Themes and Templates » CAN wordpress.org themes ONLY be uploaded in certain WEB HOSTS and not in others

  • I am just wondering if the wordpress.org templates and themes can be uploaded into any webhost since it seems wordpress is only recommending a handful of web hosting sites to host their themes.
    Does that mean only those handful of web hosting sites the only ones you can use or it just means that it can be uploaded in any web hosting site, it is just not as easy and convenient to do so in others not mentioned and may require more coding knowledge?

    For example I would like to upload my wordpress theme i downloaded off themeforest into this open VZ/VPS hosting site here,

    Lastly, can you make any wordpress theme into an ecommerce site as well by having a shopping cart and checkout counter with paypal?

    No, you can generally use any hosting company that meets WP minimum requirements – http://wordpress.org/about/requirements/

    That’s not a WordPress.ORG theme – but see:

    If you’re having problems installing it, try using FTP.

    Not all themes work with all ecommerce plugins – so check on the specifics of your theme.
