How to Install a Free WordPress Theme on Bluehost

I recently created the bluehost account and after installing WordPress, I noticed all the themes were $39 and up.  This is how I loaded a free theme:

  1. Go to
  2. Select your theme and click download, do not unzip the file and make sure it is in a folder you can find in a minute.
  3. From your bluehost account page, go to cPanel.  Scroll down to files. Open the File Manager.
  4. From the File Manager screen, select the upload folder from the top of the page and upload the zip file you downloaded a minute ago.
  5. After uploading, go to the support-live chat link at the bottom of the cPanel screen.  Tell the support tech you want to install the downloaded theme and give him/her the file name you just uploaded.  It will take approximately 20 minutes.
  6. The last step is to type in your domain name (, log in and test.

Hope this helps you.
