Ease of Use

uKit isn’t as easy to use as most website builders, but you can do almost anything once you get the hang of it. The problem is it has a steep learning curve. There’s nothing especially hard, though, just a few minor hurdles. The left board could benefit from a few labels or icons for the tabs and on-page editing could be clearer.

With that in mind, playing around for 15 minutes is enough to understand what everything does. As software in general, it’s not hard to use. It’s just that compared to other website builders, it’s clear that things could be done better.

It helps that some functionalities are only activated on the main screen if you trigger them. For example, the “store” tab will only appear once you’ve added your first product. On the other hand, though that ensures a decluttered and clean interface, it could make for a confusing five minutes until you find the e-commerce feature.

Support

The problem of hiding features behind counterintuitive tabs or sections can also be seen with ukit support.

The knowledgebase features nine categories of tutorials and Q&As, all backed by explicative images and videos. They’re well-made, so getting help on your own shouldn’t be a problem.

Getting in contact with the developers is a different story, though. Unfortunately, the website builder doesn’t offer phone support, chat support or a forum for users to help each other. The only way to get in touch is via an old ticketing system. Though outdated, it’s not a huge issue because uKit agents respond to emails promptly and valuably.

Site123, for example, provides much better support. It’s not the sharpest tool in the website building shed, but if a great help center is important to you, read our Site123 review.

The Verdict

uKit is great if you want to create a website for an offline business or a small online enterprise. Beautiful design, great features, responsive templates and ease of use once you get used to the software rank it among our best website builders.

Unfortunately, it’s not the perfect website builder. uKit lacks the community, constant development and variety of tools that come with using a giant, such as Wix or Weebly. For more on that, read our Wix review. Besides, it’s hard to get into uKit, even if you can use it alright after some playing around.

On top of that, blogging and SEO aren’t extraordinary in uKit. If that’s important to you, read our best web hosting guide. A safe choice is WordPress, but another content management system might be right for you. Before you choose WordPress, though, read our beginner’s guide to WordPress. It’s a great tool, but a hard one to use.
