In just two years, Russian-based uKit has helped thousands of small businesses in more than 100 countries overcome the technological obstacles associated with developing presence online. The company’s browser-based, drag-and-drop web builder makes site creation intuitive, eliminating the need to code. But uKit doesn’t stop there.
We develop and add new features to uKit based on your suggestions and comments. The main update of this week is the answer to one of the most popular requests — more editing options for the Header and the Footer. You are also going to like the updated visual editor and two new designs categories.
Having a professional domain name like weddingphoto.com for wedding photography or LATattoo.net for a tattoo parlor, is really important when building an online presence for your business. On uKit you can connect your custom domain to your website, and if you don't have a domain — buy one directly at the Dashboard in several clicks.
uKit is now fully available in Romanian.
After the official launch in May, followed quickly by the release of the Portuguese localization at the beginning of June, we are happy to announce that the Romanian version has just been added to uKit. Now, at the end of July 2015, the system boasts 4 languages and users can create responsive websites for various businesses in English, Russian, Portuguese and Romanian.
One of our goals is to offer a wide choice of designs and design categories for any business type. Today we would like to present new designs in such categories as Home Improvement, Cars and Real Estate, as well as a number of design tips.
Appearance matters, and to present your business online you need a modern and mobile-friendly design. Every week we add new designs to the existing categories providing a wider choice to our clients, as well as create new categories for business types.
uKit is growing in many dimensions, the visuals, features and niceties are constantly added, and today’s update is a good example of such a development.
We announce new Pinterest and Bing Maps widgets, nine new templates for a number of categories, as well as the ‘Back to Top’ button.
uKit is a service keen on keeping your sites safer than they would be at any hosting service. Still, we are releasing Automatic and Manual Backup features in today’s update. Why would you need it?
Simply put — the Manual Backup feature is a very useful tool in website development. It is common practice to make a backup copy before starting on any major changes. That is even more important in cases where there are several people involved in editing of the site.
The Automatic Backup function is straightforward and access to the copies makes your life easier. It allows you to replicate your site in its previous or earlier states in case you decide that the current one is for some reason not the ultimate one. Believe us, that happens more often than you might think.
We’ve backed all your websites before today, but from this day onwards — you will have the full control as well.
Continuing to expand the features of our new website builder, today we would like to present two new widgets: a package of email marketing tools from MailChimp, and SoundCloud which lets you add audio tracks to your website. Keep posted for our next update where we will introduce our advanced backup capabilities.
