Vortex is one of the best themes available for Wordpress with both premium features & reliable support - Compare Vortex
Responsive & fluid
This web hosting theme is fully responsive meaning it'll automatically adjust to fit the the device used to view the theme. So on a desktop computer it'll show the full scale view and on a smart-phone such as the iPhone it'll scale down to fit the screen. Not only is this theme responsive but it's also fluid meaning it has been built using percentages rather than fixed pixels so instead of having break-points (e.g iPhone, iPad) it'll respond when needed allowing it to support most devices including those yet to be launched.
Wizard Panel is our exclusive options panel that can be found inside your Wordpress admin panel once this theme is installed. Using Wizard Panel you can easily get your web hosting website up and running without HTML experience. With Wizard Panel you can:
- upload your logo
- upload your favicon
- edit the currency used
- tweak the theme features
- adjust the menu settings
- edit the homepage feature boxes
- upload slides for the homepage slideshow
- tweak the social integration
- find a full list of theme shortcodes
- import custom CSS
- reset settings to default
Automatic WHMCS synchronization
This theme comes with a optional matching WHMCS template. But this isn't just a standard WHMCS integration. This template automatically syncs with your Wordpress theme in the following ways:
- Menus - any changes you make to the menus in Wordpress via your admin panel will update both the Wordpress theme and WHMCS template.
- Wizard Panel - any changes you make to the Wordpress Wizard Panel will be automatically applied to the WHMCS template.
- Widgets - when you add/remove/edit any widget it will update the WHMCS template.
Admin based menus
This theme supports the built-in menu builder of Wordpress. This allows you to create your ideal menu easily without touching any code. This theme also support multi-level dropdowns using CSS based mega menus which can be edited inside your Wordpress admin panel.
Widgetized footer & sidebar
Widgets allow you to easily setup a section of your Wordpress theme via your Wordpress admin panel without any coding experience. This Wordpress theme has this functionality available in the sidebar and footer. Some of the widgets that are available by default in Wordpress are:
- Custom menu
- Recent comments
- Recent posts
- Tag cloud
Easy to use shortcode generator
Shortcode is basically easy to edit HTML. They allow you to edit the structure of content in a Wordpress page/post. When this page is loaded in Wordpress the shortcodes are converted to the more complex HTML which is then displayed in the browser. So with shortcodes it gives the freedom of editing code without the complexity of HTML. Even with no HTML experience you should be able to edit shortcode easily.
This Wordpress web hosting theme comes with a shortcode generator (as seen in the above screenshot) that will allow you to select shortcode for:
- 1-6 column tables (can be used on both full width and half width pages/posts)
- 1-6 feature boxes (can be used on both full width and half width pages/posts)
- Button generator (change size, color, link, text)
The features don't stop there!

Frequently asked questions
Below you'll find the answers to many questions we receive frequently. If you can't find the answer to your question below please do contact us.
Does this theme require HTML experience?
No, this theme does not require any coding experience thanks to our exclusive settings area and the built in Wordpress functionality. You will only need some HTML/CSS experience if you plan to change the colors or design of the theme, everything else can be done from inside your Wordpress admin panel.
How does the WHMCS template/sync work?
Wordpress and WHMCS would be installed in separate directories on your same domain/web hosting account. WHMCS then connects with Wordpress using our exclusive WHMCS module and the template is developed in a way that it automatically updates based on your edits to the Wordpress theme. So it will automatically sync with your menus/pages/widgets. The only thing it won't sync is plugins but you can still use supported (about 80% should work fine) ones on the Wordpress side.
Is this themes only suitable for web hosting companies?
No, while this theme comes with web hosting related content it is fully customizable so can be used for any type of business.
If I use this theme for a web hosting business do I need WHMCS?
We do recommend using WHMCS for your web hosting business as it allows you to automate billing/account provisioning. However, you could use just the Wordpress theme along with any payment gateway that allows you to generate order buttons/links (PayPal for example)
Will this theme work with any hosting provider?
Yes, this theme will work with any hosting provider that supports Wordpress/WHMCS. Note that if you plan to resell web hosting you'll need a web hosting reseller account.
