If you’re a Blogger who has used WordPress for at least a year, you must have heard about WordPress Nulled Themes and Plugins.
“Nulled” simply means you can get anything for free in an illegal way. But unlike pirating movies and musics, you won’t get arrested if you for using them. There are tons of websites where we can download them for experiments. Some even use them on their real sites.
In this post, I’ll share with you my thoughts of using WordPress Nulled themes and plugins.
Are Nulled Themes and Plugins safe?
It depends on the website you’re downloading the files from. I’ve used many nulled plugins and themes in the past and I have never faced any issues.
You will come across many bloggers telling you that nulled things are never safe but I would disagree with them. I do agree that most of the websites looks spammy and will lead you to unwanted web pages.
But there are also genuine site where you’ll get safe nulled plugins and themes. By saying they are safe, I want you to know that I’m not promoting them but I’m just correcting the misconceptions.
Most of the downloading sites that we see in the search results aren’t legit and we should avoid them at all cost.

Who Uses Nulled WordPress Themes and Plugins?
If your blog is getting a decent amount of visitors, keep yourself away from these nulled items. Most of the people who use nulled extensions are the ones who are relatively a new blogger or the ones who are unable to pay for them.
Some use them for experimenting and then buy the original if they’re satisfied.
Who Should Use?
Nulled things are always made for small bloggers who are unable to pay the money since they’re tight on a budget. I would recommend the small bloggers (like me) to use them and when you start earning a decent amount of money, you should buy the original files for your site. I sound like a retard now but this is how most of my friends did in the past.
Are there any other ways?
Apart from the above mentioned points, there are also ways you can use WordPress plugins and themes by paying a little amount of money. You will come across dozens of websites which will offer them to you for a cheap price. And if you don’t have enough to buy from the original markets, I would recommend you to buy from websites offering you themes and plugins at cheap prices.
