Pros: uCoz in its modern form is designed for a variety of clients, for example, bloggers, webmasters, owners of larger projects, and therefore the system abounds with a wide range of various modules. This is on the one hand, but on the other - can be confusing. It's good that when working, everyone can select and configure only modules that are necessary from his point of view and deactivate the rest. Another controversial issue is the provision of full access to the project code. To me, as an experienced IT specialist, this is useful, but beginners can easily make their mistakes in the code.

Cons: It is a pity that there are such strict restrictions on the free tariff. For example, someone else's ad is constantly shown (and not always topical!), PHP scripts are not available, an SSL certificate can not be connected to a separately purchased domain, which is very important in our time and on the ranking of the site.

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: 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.

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.

Pros: I have been following for a long time how uCoz is developing and I want to say that the developers have made significant progress in the past few years. If earlier with the help of this system I managed to create low-functional projects with poor design, now everything has changed for the better. In the system it is easy to create a site of any complexity, you can choose or order a colorful design for specialists. By functionality, I appreciate the ability to backup data, the provision of domain and hosting, the ability to create e-mail addresses in your own domain zone.

Cons: Unfortunately, I can not do without negativity in the direction of uCoz. So, the developers of the project at any time can suspend the work of your site, and the reasons can be very different, and your business will suffer. The second point is the presence of someone else's advertising, the placement of which is not coordinated with the owner of the site.

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).

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.

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.

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: uCoz is suitable only if you have knowledge of any HTML, CSS or other nonsense. Without this knowledge, you do not normally add a description of the product. I work as a chief accountant and wanted to make a small online store for myself. I tried to use this designer to create a simple online store with 50 products. At each step to create a store, I encountered difficulties that can be solved only by climbing into the CSS settings of the store. So I tell you that I did not get anything good from this designer, I had to learn other CMS and choose from them.

Cons: Even in paid templates that are on the Internet, there are so many errors in the code (I checked on different Internet services), and to fix them, you need to pay more money than they cost. There can not be any super simplicity.

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: 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: As the developers of the system say, uCoz will suit everyone who wants to launch their site, blog, online store, information resource. Of course, this CMS has a convenient modular structure and users have full access to the editing capabilities of the source code. At the same time, the sites are created relatively simply, for a small project, you do not even have to climb into the code and change something there.

Cons: The pricing policy does not please me, and if you want to use the free tariff, be prepared for the fact that your site will not belong to you, moreover, the advertisement of an outsider will constantly flash and scare away your potential customers.

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.

Pros: This site builder is suitable for beginners who do not have experience in creating websites, and maybe even do not know how to program. This system is quite simple to master, it has many modules that are easily assembled into a more or less decent site.

Cons: Unfortunately, for commercial purposes the system is not very suitable, unless you decide to use its paid versions. If you talk about free options, it turns out that the site itself and all the content that you have added does not belong to you and it can at any time modify or completely stop access to it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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: 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.
