    Hello everybody, i'm planning to create a website with a nulled wp theme but i found on google that if my hosting provider detects that i'm using a nulled script they will close my website... So i'm just asking you if there is someone that knows if all this is true or not. thanks

    many people have had their accounts closed due to running improperly nulled themes and scripts. the two main problems with nulled files are:

    1. if you don't know what to look for then you can't be sure the script was actually nulled correctly because many coders don't know what they're doing.

    2. you can't be sure the decoder didn't replace the file's original tracking script with their own backdoor (trojan) password or malware. a common activity!

    trusting strangers is never a good idea. read this...

    If I were you, I'd just buy the theme. Not only can the host close your account, your website can get hacked if the nuller added any "suspicious" code somewhere. Rather use a theme you know is clean.

    Buying a theme is the way to go compared to using a null...

    Why put in hours of your time building your site and then come back tomorrow and its gone or ruined?

    In my opinion nulled themes are only good for offline testing out how a site will look with a theme and if it offers what your looking for. For a money site the cost of getting a theme is well worth it instead of having to worry about malicious code or hosting suspended for using a nulled theme.

    If you have microsoft OS, all you need to do is install web matrix by Microsoft and then install wordpress on it and you can make and test websites with various nulled themes before buying one.
