Many plugins for WrodPress in the wordpress.org store of plugins. Much of that plugins are having the same functions and similar names. You can select the best plugins based on the reviews and comments in the web page. Here, I selected the best five Plugins ! I think, every WordPress website should install them !
In my opinion, WP-reCAPTCHA is the best plugin for protecting your posts from the spam comments and the nosy messages from the spammers.
reCAPTCHA is a free CAPTCHA service that protects your site against spam, malicious registrations and other forms of attacks where computers try to disguise themselves as a human; a CAPTCHA is a Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Human Apart. reCAPTCHA comes in the form of a widget that you can easily add to your blog, forum, registration form, etc.
