Create a website is easy but creating a website with these plugins is smart work. With the right suite of plugins incorporated into your backed, you can dramatically (and instantaneously) improve the functionality, aesthetic, and efficiency of your site both for yourself and your viewers.
So let's start.
1. Contact Form
If you need a plugin that will allow you to seamlessly create and manage multiple contact forms, use reCaptcha verification, and ensure that all spammy submissions are filtered out with Askimet (more on them in a second), then Contact Form 7 is the last WordPress plugin you’ll ever need.
2. Yoast SEO
When it comes to on-page search engine optimization, few plugins can shine a candle to the efficacy and functionality of Yoast SEO.
3 . Akismet Anti-Spam
Developed by the genius team behind the software of WordPress itself (the good folks of Automattic) Askimet Anti-Spam is the only plugin that you’ll need to keep the spammers at bay and maintain the long-term integrity of your site.
4 . WooCommerce
For those of you who opted to take a slightly less conventional route with your eCommerce adventures (a.k.a. not using Shopify), WooCommerce is the all-in-one open source eCommerce platform for WordPress webmasters.
5. WordFence Security
With the proliferation of cyber attacks and website hacks in 2018, website security is more important than ever before. If you’re concerned about the security and integrity of your website, WordFence Security will allow you to rest easy knowing that your website, much like the customers of Allstate, is in good hands.
6. Updraftplus WordPress Backup Plugin
Nothing is more frustrating (or terrifying) for the average webmaster than the prospect of losing all of their hard work and content due to a faulty update or accidental coding fluke. Luckily, with UpdraftPlus WordPress Backup, the world’s highest rated (2,400+ 5-star reviews and counting) scheduled backup plugin, you can put those fears and frustrations behind you.
With a suite of developer tools and a seamless visual builder that allows anyone (and I do mean anyone) to design stunning web pages in a matter of minutes, Elementor Page builder is, bar none, one of the most effective and easy-to-use WordPress page builder plugins on the market today.
