Plug-ins for self-hosted WordPress

These can be added directly from the Plugins section of your admin area. No need to download separately and upload.  Of course, there are hundreds of plugins.  These are some of the ones I use.

UpdraftPlus (backups)
Akismet (comment spam protection)
Yoast SEO (the go-to SEO plugin)
Contact Form 7
Jetpack (a suite of tools doing all kinds of different things made by WordPress.com)
Google Analytics (site stats)
Google XML Sitemaps
Email Address Encoder (protect your email address from spammers)
Events Manager
MailChimp List Subscriber Form (a nicer way to integrate a MailChimp signup form)
PopupAlly (popups, but I actually prefer Sumo's)
Bloom (premium, by Elegant themes, the makers of the famous Divi theme) for attractive opt-in form signups, popup and embedded; can be used with any theme)
WP Google Maps
Coming Soon (by SeedProd)
My Post Order (order your posts in a way other than chronological)
NextGEN Gallery (lots of ways to organise a WordPress gallery)
Sell Media (to sell downloads, e.g. photographs)
Easy Digital Downloads (for selling digital products)
WPML - for multilingual sites
Polylang - the above is the (premium) go-to for multilingual sites, but you should have a look at this one as well.
