Those are numbers that will stand out. Why is this theme so popular? When looking at OceanWP's rating, it is immediately noticeable that it is also very high.

OceanWP: Strengths

OceanWP Theme review: Speed


The main difference between OceanWP and the 2 aforementioned closest competitors is that OceanWP has put the emphasis more on top design (especially for web shops) and Astra and Generatepress on speed. OceanWP is also built on speed but not as forced as the other 2. The image above shows that OceanWP scores 98%, ie of 100 sites, 2 were faster than OceanWP. It is important to consider for yourself what is more important. A site that loads everything within a second can of course be called top fast and speed is one of the good features of OceanWP which makes it so popular.

OceanWP: Beautiful design

So the design is something that has been given more than enough attention by the OceanWP team and it shows. The theme shows a beautiful design on all devices and the demo websites offered are of very high quality. See photo below.

And for Woocommerce...

OceanWP: Woocommerce extensions

The OceanWP theme has also been perfected on Woocommerce, the most popular webshop system in the world for Wordpress. Not only for customization of its design, but it offers a host of conversion enhancing gadgets. For example the so-called native cart pop-up. After you put an item in your basket, a pop-up will appear to encourage you to pay. This alone would bring about 8% more conversion. There are a number of Woocommerce modules that you can view on their own site.

To be fair, we have to admit in this review for OceanWP that the theme is one of the best for creating webshops. If you want to have a perfectly working shop that looks fantastic, OceanWP is your theme.

OceanWP review: Video

In the video below from OceanWP itself, you will quickly be made aware of the benefits of the OceanWP theme. The video only lasts 48 seconds.



OceanWP: Pricing

The regular "to-go" premium price is $ 59. Especially if you are going to use the theme for a shop, this is a very good price. There are practically no better themes for building web shops. Now during the quarantine you get the premium version for $ 31 already.

OceanWP theme review: Conclusion

You have come to the end of our OceanWP theme review. In the first place thanks for reading the complete article. My conclusion is that OceanWP is a fantastic theme that is definitely worth the money. The theme is perfect for web shops, has a great design, is easy to operate and loads very quickly. That's basically all a good theme needs. It just lacks a good page builder to finish it.

OceanWP works perfectly with Elementor, but also with one of the following elite page builders: Divi Builder, BeaverBuilder and Thrive Architect.

HESTIA THEME (Ocean-WP vs Hestia)

Hestia Theme review


HESTIA THEME REVIEW

In this Hestia Theme review for [2021] I discuss all the great features it has. This theme was built by ThemeIsle which is one of the best theme and plugin builders for Wordpress. Other very popular themes from them are for example Zelle and Neve.

HESTIA RATINGS

Below you can see the rating and active installation where I have placed arrows.


Hestia Theme review ratings


HESTIA AND ELEMENTOR

This appreciation applies to the free version of Hestia, which is of course much less extensive. I will of course discuss everything Hestia has to offer here, the pro version. The theme works perfectly with Woocommerce, WPML and the Elementor page builder. The additional installation of Elementor is definitely recommended, there is no better page builder. Get the pro version right away if you don't have problems spending some money.

HESTIA AND WOOCOMMERCE

For a top theme it is important to have a great presentation when it comes to web shops. Without it you will not achieve any rankings. Hestia just like the other themes from ThemeIsle have this. Below I show you how well everything is arranged in the shop pages.

HESTIA REVIEW: STARTER SITES

Just like any good theme, Hestia has a library of starter sites. So you do not have to start working on your site from scratch, but there is immediately a design that you will adapt to your corporate identity. As can be seen in the picture below, designs for all types of niches have been built with Elementor. To be honest, I have to say that the number is low compared to other themes.

HESTIA SPEEDTEST

Let's see how the theme performs in a test for download speed. We already know that all themes from ThemeIsle are built on speed. The results shown below were achieved with a good cache and compression plug-in installed of course.

PRICING

Hestia theme review pricing


I think the prices are a bit expensive compared to other themes. Also the fact that no starter sites are included in the free version or for 1 website.

HESTIA: CONCLUSION

I have to say that I think it is a good theme but too expensive. A much better alternative from the same builder is the Neve theme which I even rank high in my list for best Wordpress themes for [2021]. There are more than a hundred starter sites even in the free version. I advise you to read that article of mine if you are looking for the best themes for a good price.

You have come to the end of my Ocean-WP vs Hestia comparison. These 2 themes practically have the same strengths. They charge very quickly. At loading speed, Ocean-WP wins. Furthermore, both themes are particularly suitable for building web shops and Ocean-WP wins this battle by far from Hestia. I have Ocean-WP in the best Woocommerce themes for [2021] in place 2 here. Finally, I would like to mention that Ocea-WP is cheaper and that makes it an easy choice in all. If you are looking for a good theme for your site and especially when it comes to a shop, take Ocean-WP.
