When to Use Third-Party Tools
- You have a large website with many pages and scripts;
- You are not familiar with the code and do not know where to start looking;

It is always best to start by accessing the error log in cPanel and analyzing the errors yourself, as this can teach you about your website’s code and help you avoid similar errors in the future.
