10. Neve

Neve is a great topic of WordPress, to try if you want to get your site online quickly and use a ready-made design that you can import in a few clicks. The design is modern, optimized for mobile devices, loads quickly and does not take much of your web server resources. It also offers 20+ free starter sites and even more if you decide to upgrade to pro. While the other themes on this list also offer starter sites, Neve does a better job of prompting the user to choose one right after installing the theme, so you're not left with the site looking unrefined.
