After one year of development, the Russian and Ukrainian team behind uCoz, a free website builder which boasts more than 1,5 million active users, announces the open beta launch of its new website creation platform, uKit.
Aiming to create big websites for small businesses, uKit is a drag-and-drop website builder that empowers micro and small sized businesses to create personalized websites in an easy yet effective way. The user-created websites are designed to adapt seamlessly across all devices including mobile tablets and smartphones. While offering a range of templates and custom design options, the site limits user customizations based on recommendations from design professionals to help customers avoid “development gone wrong” scenarios like mismatched fonts, awkward color combinations, unprofessional headers and other design mishaps.
Evgeny Kurt, uKit’s CEO and Co-Founder of uCoz stated: “Micro, small businesses and freelancers account for over 95% of the world’s enterprises and with increasing competition, an online presence has become even more vital. In the United States alone, around 50% of the businesses don’t have a website. We want to help business owners save on initial start-up costs with a do-it-yourself solution that is highly flexible and professional, yet affordable”.
