Introducing the Managed WordPress themes

Themes not only define the look of your website, they also provide the features that help you present and organize your content. Things like custom headers, featured posts and image sliders help you customize your website, making it truly unique.

You can use themes to control what your website looks like. You can easily adjust and personalize all themes at any time. For the selection of themes, we have evaluated not only the features and design, but also the performance and quality of the code. This are the most important Managed WordPress themes:

    Is there no possibility to upload a theme, that I already bought. Please tell me how to install it.

    Thanks a lot!

      Hi Annette,

      if you want to use a custom theme, you can do so by switching from Managed WordPress to a standard/default WordPress installation.
      Visit the 1&1 App Center and select Switch to Standard next to your Managed WordPress Website.

      Enjoy.

    Hi
    Sorry, I’m confused! Does that mean just switching to a standard theme installation (instead of 1&1 wizard) within the Managed WordPress package, or does it mean leaving the managed wordpress package altogether and reverting to standard wordpress (ie unmanaged) package?

    Info on the 1&1 pages seems contradictory, with some suggesting that I can only use one of the 12 free themes if I want 1&1 to manage wordpress, but when I sign up for the managed wordpress packages it states that I use “a huge range of free designs, plus an exclusive 20% discount on paid themes from TemplateMonster”. So, is “standard” referring to the type of theme installation, or the wordpress package itself?

    I don’t want a standard package. II want to use a premium theme within the managed wordpress package, so that 1&1 deal with upgrades, backups, etc.

    Would appreciate you clarifying for me!

      Hi Ashley,

      in the mean time we changed our Managed WordPress product a bit. You are now allowed to install own custom themes and plugins inside your Managed WordPress installation. For these you will have to perform updates by yourself while we are still updating the WordPress core files for you.

      Best regards,
      Michael, 1%1

    When I can upload the theme I bought, I try to upload it, from 0%-100%, then waiting and waiting….. looks like I’m not allowed to do so. What happened?? I need to upload my own, I don’t like any of those come with 1&1.

  4. 1and1help says:

    Hi John Lui,

    uploading an own theme should work generally for both “Standard” and “Managed” installations.

    We would like to look deeper into this. Please send us more informations via mail at help@1and1.co.uk.

    Thanks and regards,
    Michael, 1&1
