One of WordPress's most key features is its versatility and ability to work with plugins. Extra functionality can be added to your site through WordPress Plugins. Whether it's a chatbot to talk to your visitors or an extra security plugin to help protect your site. WordPress allows other Developers and coders to create and maintain plugins to be used with WordPress. Because of this, WordPress offers a large variety of plugins to use. However, be sure only to install the plugins that you trust. Attackers can potentially use plugin installations to attack your site if you do not keep your plugins and WordPress up to date when they become available.
While it may be nice to access the plugins through WordPress's repository, some developers may want to limit access to their plugins or provide custom plugins for clients. In either case, you can install those as well. It is assumed in the steps below that you have a WordPress plugin in the .zip format.
