    I'm working on a new site, which i'm very serious about.

    If i use nulled themes on it, is it a good idea?
    If not then it's ok, because i can use free themes.

    But the main problem is i need like 10 plugins which are premium, and i don't want to buy it now before making any money from the site. I want to know if i use nulled pugins now and purchase them later, will it be a good idea?

    Authority website and nulled themes & plugins ? Higher chances of getting hacked or may be they will place hidden links in themes.

    This is the correct approach of using nulled themes/plugins. You first try them free (because no one provides trial) and then when you make money you go and purchase a license. At least that's how i do it.

    Use nulled themes/plugins as a starting point but please buy one from the developer once you make enough money. Also be alert about malicious codes in nulled themes/plugins.

    I can advise you, use official free WP theme, and check the nulled plugins with various ways. Inform yourself about "how to lock down WP site'' the web is full of info on the topic, start with cloudflare. And in the end there is no completely secure system :) GL

    I once got malicious code placed all over hosting when I use nulled themes.

    You should pay for a decent theme

    Do not over think it, add a few layers of security via plugins, make sure to have backups of site and database and jump into the deep water :)

    Instead of digging endlessly for backdoors and malicious codes on the plugin and theme, buy the premium theme and plugin. You will save time.

    I would advise against using nulled themes. Even if you test the themes there is always a chance that hackers have found a way around it and you will not detect anything. I would take advantage of free themes and once you are able to afford it then purchase premium themes to be on the safe side.
