Theme Requirements

Code + Coconut themes can only be installed on self-hosted WordPress websites and require your own license of the Genesis Framework* to work.

To make sure the installation process goes smoothly, it is recommended to have all these things lined up first, before buying the theme.

  • Buy a domain name. If you haven’t done this already, we recommend buying from Namecheap* as they offer a really great service!
  • Buy hosting. To be able to have a self-hosted WordPress site, you need to buy hosting. We highly recommend SiteGround* if you haven’t bought it already.
  • Install WordPress. Once you’ve bought your domain name and host, it’s time to install WordPress on your server. Most hosts will give you a one-click install option that’s super easy to do! You’ll know it worked when you have a fully functioning website that you can log into.
  • Buy a Genesis Framework* License. If you’re a new blogger, chances are you won’t have a copy of the Genesis Framework already. It’s important to get your own copy, otherwise, you won’t be able to install this theme.



We love love love SiteGround* for hosting and Namecheap* for domain names. They’re two companies who care a lot about customer support and giving you the best price for the most amazing service ever. We’re using those companies ourselves and have been happy clients for years!
