Hey,

yes, you need to have a host. I am guessing you arte on wordpress.com right now, correct? You should download standalone WP from wordpress.org, buy a host and domain and then set up wp/theme there.

There are lots of guides on the internet for that, just google it.

Hi armandabaptista, as an extension to OriginalEXE’s post above, this would be the next step:

  1. Download the final zip file from your downloads page.
  2. Unzip the final zip file; you should now have a final download folder.
  3. Do NOT upload the final download folder. Open up the final download folder.
  4. Browse the contents and find the actual theme folder. If you look inside the theme folder, you will see a “style.css” file. This is how you know you have found the theme folder.
  5. Upload ONLY the theme folder to your “wp-content/themes” folder.
  6. Login to your WordPress admin panel and activate the theme.

or watch the screencast here.

I believe that BlueHost has a script for WordPress autoinstall, just check out your ControlPanel for “Scriptaculous” or “Fantastico Installer” or something like that, or ask live support via chat.

You could have just Logged in and from Admin, click Themes under Appearance. Then click on Install Themes, Upload, and browse for the Zipped file. Once uploaded, click activate.
