I just made an account. This is my first time shopping for themes, so I’m new to all this.
I’m a subcontractor, helping to make a new site for a client. (I have no contact with the client, my boss does.)
I have a new Wordpress and dummy domain set up because they didn’t want the current site purged or messed with.
It’s like: http://sitedraft.org
I will need to transfer domains to the new one and their old site will be demolished after everything is done. So it will turn into https://site.org.
In shopping for themes, on other marketplaces, the one-domain license thing concerned me and I was afraid it wouldn’t transfer.
So I’ve been looking at 100% GPL themes on here. I know they say they are for a single site, but I’ve seen people on other forums say you can technically use it again because it is 100% GPL.
I have two questions: (again I’m very new to this. This is my first job doing all this.)
Is a 100% GPL theme a one-time payment that I pay for so I can upload it to Wordpress? Or would it be something the client would have to pay monthly/yearly for like some themes.
When the domain name transfer happens will the worst happen and I lose all the work I did/ will the theme be disabled ect. ?
Am I wrong about 100% GPL themes? And if so can someone explain it all to me better?
I think that’s all I need to know. I’d appreciate any answers here. It’s a bit confusing, being all new at this.
