Question 6: I don’t see the Plugins Menu in my Admin Panel

Answer: If your blog is hosted on the free platform, you do not have the ability to add plugins.
If you do not have administrator level account on your WordPress installation, then you will not see the Plugins tab. These are the reason the plugins menu is not visible in wordpress admin panel.

Question 7: How to speed up site loads?

Answer: First thing you need to do is consider adding a caching plugin to WordPress. We use and recommend W3 Total Cache. Another thing you can do is use a Content Delivery Network provider. We use and recommend MaxCDN (See our infographic about What is a CDN and Why you need it). You should also consider using a better web hosting provider. Shared hosts are usually slower.
If you are receiving a lot of traffic, then you should consider moving to a VPS or a Dedicated server.

    I had a techie create my wp website and then hand it over to me. He kept the hosting and domain name registered. Ive recently taken over the registration of my domain and hosting but now cant access my website. Do i need to create my own account in wp to now access my website? What have i missed?

      You will need account login information for your web hosting and domain registration accounts. You will also need admin login details for your WordPress website. With WordPress admin login you can enter your website’s admin area and manage your website. From your web hosting account you can manage the hosting of your WordPress website and troubleshoot issues.
