The hosting standard encoding is UTF-8. It is recommended to use it.
  1. Openup site settings.
  2. Against "Encoding" select the appropriate encoding from the list (this setting controls the header charsetwhich tells the browser the encoding in which to display the site):
  3. Save your changes.
  4. Wait approximately 15-30 minutes for the changes to take effect.

If none of the listed encodings suits you, select the option from the list with encodings Don't bind encoding and save your changes. After that, in the root directory of the site, create a file .htaccess and in it using the directive AddDefaultCharset specify the desired encoding. Example:

AddDefaultCharset cp1251

If the text on the site is still displayed incorrectly, the possible options depend on where exactly this text is stored:

  • If in files — try changing the encoding using any FTPclient and a specialized text editor (for example, Notepad ++).
  • If in the database — try to explicitly specify the desired encoding in the database connection script, as described here.
