Uh oh… Are you buying WP or HTML templates? If it is HTML, I am fearing you may have been oversold on how easy it is to modify these templates. Unzipping the files may be the least of your challenges. Do you have any coding / html experience? I am a web developer and my starting point ofr a lot of clients is to buy a template on templatemonster etc and then modify it to incorporate their logo, change the menu, modify the content, fiddle the colors slightly. I do all of this by opening up the HTML files and editing them. Unless you are using a hosted solution (where the ‘template’ is purchased from the hosting company and lives on their servers at all time, and they give you an admin panel, no downloading involved…) Assuming you are not using a hosted solution but a template that you bought and downloaded and which you need to modify and find hosting for… well I do not know how you can do that without touchng some HTML. You may read / hear that you can use Dreamweaver or Contribute or Expression Web to modify HTML without touching the code, but I think that is a bit of an exageration (Big fat oversell). Yes – you could edit a paragraph or to, but to edit a whole site? I think not!
If it is a WordPress theme template the outlook is brighter – get WP onto the host platform (usually do-able through the control panel) then use FTP to upload your theme… not as simple as people tell you but not impossible.
