I'm not sure I understand the question.

If you are asking if it's OK to modify a web design template you obtained from someone else: depending on the terms of use offered by the template designer, you may (or may not) be able to modify it to meet your own design aesthetics -- for instance, to incorporate your own corporate logo or a different color scheme.

Some template designers will not allow others on their own to modify their templates, but will produce modified or custom templates upon request -- for a price.

It all depends on what the template designer has chosen to include in their licensing terms.

If, instead, you're asking if it's OK to use an unmodified template for a website, or if you must modify it for it to be acceptable: you can certainly use unmodified templates "as-is" if they meet your design criteria. There is no need to modify them unless some element of the design is not to your taste or doesn't conform to your company's or client's design standards.

Most websites built on templates are looking quite unprofessional. Either the template was too "cheap" or the template is professionally designed but the contents is full of spelling errors and design mistakes.

I think you should either go on and create a simple website with the knowledge and experience you have or to higher a professional webdesigner creating one for you.

Im not sure what your requirements are but usually if you buy the template, you can still manipulate the main layout of the graphic design if you wish because they provide the .PSD file (photoshop file).

Also, you can add texts, photos, videos, and everything else you need to meet your requirements when it comes to contents.

So your answer is YES..

If the source files are given, you can do whatever to it as long as you have knowledge to manipulate them.

If you dont then this is where you want to hire someone else.

I hope this helps .
