Pros: A few years ago, I first encountered the need to create a site and for some reason my choice fell on uCOZ. I'll be honest, since then I've regretted 10 times and thank God I managed to transfer that project to another hosting and chose another CMS.

Cons: On a free tariff plan to your site (without your knowledge, of course !!!) they pile in someone else's ads, which sometimes even has obscene content. Another drawback - even in the contract-offer is written that your site is NOT yours and at any time can be edited or closed.

Pros: Once the system was the market leader due to lack of competition and ease of use. Over time, she passed the position, but still retains the advantages: to create a site does not need to know any technology, access to free hosting and domain.

Cons: What the system offers for free, does not fit serious sites at all. To make the project unique, give it a good domain name and so on, you have to pay.

Pros: My experience of using the Ucoz system is more than seven years, for which I have traveled from a beginner to a person who professionally promotes websites. At Ucoz, I now have a few old client projects that actually became a free site building simulator. Serious commercial intentions are better to be immediately implemented on more reliable services from the point of view of owning the site.

Cons: Aggressive advertising on your site (you can disable it for money), expensive paid service packages, lack of rights to your site.

Do not expect that you will be able to create a good site for free

Pros: If you want to be a full-fledged master of your site, you should take care of the paid domain and hosting. While the enhanced functionality of Ucoz will cost more.

Cons: If you incur losses for reasons related to the health / inoperability of Ucoz servers, the implemented changes and any Ucoz actions, no one will reimburse them voluntarily.

Pros: I met UCOZ a long time ago and I liked this system. Now I think that, most likely, I appreciated the opportunity to train for free and to tighten my site building skills.

Cons: The situation with UCOZ becomes sadder every year. Instead of purchasing individual services, paid packages have been introduced. And the minimum paid package does not disable ugly and obtrusive advertising, but only moves it from the top of the site to the bottom. Meanwhile, the presence of aggressive advertising affects the position of the site in the search.

Pros: If you are going to run your site on CMS uCoz, you should understand that for free features (lots of beautiful templates, hosting) you have to pay not money, but others.

Cons: It turns out that the addition of content to the site is strictly limited, and in order to download more, you will have to pay. In addition, for free options you voluntarily agree to the built-in advertising.

Pros: If you do not create some super complicated effects, in my opinion, the system justifies itself and is suitable for a beginner. However, it does not always work correctly even with elementary templates. But there are more mythical myths than truth. By experience I can say that the designer is fully operational and create simple sites for him to do.

Cons: Yet it is very desirable to understand what you are doing by pressing this or that button. But even a beginner can figure it out. But the functionality of the free version, indeed, it would be nice to expand.

A good tool, but not a magic button

Pros: I suggest you just try this system. If you understand what you are doing - this site will be able to help you. It allows you to realize the boldest ideas, if you use it right.

Cons: But the functionality of the free tariff needs to be expanded - here you can't argue. And the storage space is not enough, but you can always switch to a paid tariff.

Pros: Checked by personal experience: the designer is very easy to use, of course, you will need some time to understand what is going on, but I do not think it will take more than an hour or two. Everything depends on the degree of your awareness in the creation of sites.

Cons: There is not enough space in the free account to host a decent amount of content, on all pages incomprehensible advertising is displayed, which prevents the promotion of its own project.

Everything is simple and understandable, but there are a lot of shortcomings

Pros: Once I went to uCoz's site and registered. I immediately thought that it would be quite easy, and I was right. Everything was intuitive. I immediately chose the site address and chose the design in a couple of minutes. Then everything was even easier, just click on the desired item in the control panel menu and add material. On the site you can edit the material in the visual and HTML editors. This is very useful for beginners. I quietly typed articles and added to the site.

Cons: On the site created on uCoz, there is some time limit for the indexing of pages. Imagine: you created the site, filled it with content, and it is indexed in a month.

An incomprehensible system, it is not free at all

Pros: Previously, everything was very simple, if I wanted to change the design of the site, it was enough to go into the control panel, choose one of the free designs and install, the kind of site changed.

Cons: And now, I feel uncomfortable with changing templates! I'm trying to change the design, go to the control panel, select the desired design, click APPLY, it turns out to me that the site view is changed. And after visiting the site again, I see that the design has remained the same! I'm starting to write about this in technical support. But they explain to me that in order to get an answer to this question, I have to write about this from my account, which is quite difficult, since a free consultation now even from the account is not possible, and costs five cents, and to send a message in tech support, you need to replenish your account.

Over time, the system only gets worse

Pros: The only advantage of this CMS is that a simple site with basic functions can be done quickly, easily and for free. At the same time, this option is not suitable for a business project.

Cons: I used to do on uCoz sites, when there was still a bar at the top of the screen, even advised friends, because the sites were normal then, and almost without ads ... Now it's impossible to work at all, because everything has to be paid, and advertising just reduces from the minds of both site owners and visitors.

I will not use this CMS anymore!

Pros: This system is simple and understandable, allows you to quickly create websites and use their free hosting. True, the space allocated for the storage of the site is small and for "heavy" content it is necessary to pay extra.

Cons: Over time, the system is getting worse and worse. Now they also added a bunch of inconvenient functions, for example, a badly read CAPTCHA, which you will read from the time of the fifth. And also sites are removed for non-attendance (although attendance was, but deleted in a fast way, and not as it was said that in 30 days, but much earlier).

I'm disappointed in this CMS

Pros: The site on this hosting I made about four years ago. This was my first work on creating a website. I did not know anything about this area and I did not even quite understand how it was done. I was helped by questions and answers from people who also created their sites on UCoz. I did not expect any big requests from the site - I just had to post my work. Since the site I do not sell, and information - I chose free hosting. Gradually, step by step, I began to fill my first site with information and photos. About two months later, I managed to do it quickly enough.

Cons: Everything would be fine if not for one BUT ... On a free site, advertising in half a page fell out as soon as you visit the site and whenever you want to go to another page.

Functionality is good, but obtrusive advertising is terrible!

Pros: The functionality of this content management system is not bad, but the abundance of advertising just makes you crazy. For example, a client visits a site to view the information of interest, but receives a bunch of advertisements and an offer to say a browser that will not be used later.

Cons: In order to view the site, there are two options:
1. Look through the advertisement to the end - and this is 23-25 seconds;
2. download a browser with which advertising will not be visible.
Obviously, none of the serious people will not waste time on such nonsense.

Here everything is not as simple as indicated on the site

Pros: In order to design a more or less serious site and correctly design everything, organize and manage all of this, you need to study the forums, instructions and contact technical support for a couple of days, which, according to some reviews, is not very eager to respond to the call.

Cons: It turned out that free hosting from uCoz does not guarantee the author of copyright protection on his site. It seems that at any time the project can be banned, etc.
