How many plugins are too much for a WordPress website?

I remember this was one of the questions that bothered me when I first started. But after over 5 years of WordPress experience and consultations with Programmers and other experienced WordPress users, the conclusion is not very straightforward.

Usually, you should be more concerned about the effectiveness of your website than worrying about numbers.

But to answer the question, having up to 30 plugins on your website will still be ok. Though this also depends on the kind of hosting plan your website is on.

Also, you want to go for safe and lightly coded plugins. Avoid those multifunctional WordPress plugins as they do place too much load on your website thus impacting your loading speed negatively.

Finally, anytime you have the opportunity to avoid the use of plugins, then you should do so.
