Why you should not use too many plugins?
We all know plugins are important and sometimes necessary to keep the site running. But please be very careful with the choice of plugins and only use the necessary ones for you on the website.
In this post, I am going to give you the list of all the necessary plugins and tell you for few tips and tricks to avoid them for a few basic stuff.
This will reduce the number of plugins installed and will help you better manage your website and load it fast.
We all know that the WordPress plugin library provides some very awesome plugins for free but we should only install the one which is very necessary. The use of plugins should be very limited and should be used only to solve specific problems and not very frequently.
To make the most effective use of a plugin, it is imperative to initiate it from a sound and sturdy source and should be used only when unavoidable. However, if the plugins are used in bulk, there are many hindrances that can be caused. Those are as follows:
The induction of a plug-in can really affect the speed of your site and make it ponderous. The plug-in while being used, itself inserts its own codes into the website which you are using at the current moment. Even so, if the codes are not required to the website, still they get installed on it. Such unnecessary installation, however, leads to an effect on the download time and user interface.
Increases the RAM
Plugins tend to increase the RAM of the website and can act as a troublesome burden and they make the website heavier in terms of the RAM quantity.
Threat to security
With the use of a plug-in, there can be many serious security issues that can surface since these plug-ins act as a magnet for different bugs and viruses, which hit the plug-in and can, in turn, affect the website as well as in current use of that affected plug-in.
There are many plug-ins that have the same effect and the same functions and using both of them in the hopes of a better result may conclude to be fruitless. For example, if you are using a cache plug-in already and you download another plug-in doing the same job, it will not optimize the speed of the website but rather decimate it.
Loss of partial control
While using a cost-free plugin, we denude ourselves from the control of part of the site as we have to be dependent on the developer of that plugin to provide us with updates. This can lead to many mischievous acts by the developers of the plug-in.
Hence we can safely conclude that plug-ins improve flexibility and give us a lot of power to enhance website functionalities, however, avoid overuse and download only the ones that are necessary.
