What is Plugin ?

Plugins are software components or modules that add specific features or functionalities to an existing application or system. They are designed to extend the capabilities of a program without altering its core structure. Plugins enable users to customize and enhance their experience by adding new features, functionalities, or integrations seamlessly.

Webuzo plugins are modular extensions that enhance the functionality and features of the Webuzo control panel. By integrating plugins into the Webuzo environment, users can easily extend the capabilities of their hosting infrastructure and customize their experience.
