Ucraft is a block-based website builder — ideal for small business websites. Block-based builders are unique, in that websites are built by stacking blocks vertically on top of one another. This creates a neat, and well-organized site that ensures there’s no photo, text box or graphic out of place.


Ucraft’s website builder also enables small business owners to build websites quite quickly.


And for those wanting to build a landing page for lead generation, opt-ins and conversions, Ucraft offers a free account, but note that the landing page will be published on a Ucraft subdomain (you can connect a custom domain) and is limited to adding up to 50 basic elements.


Websites powered by Ucraft look professional, and because of its ease-of-use, users both novice and advanced should have no challenges navigating its user interface and countless features. Once you’re ready to build your site or landing page — we recommend taking advantage of the free 14-day trial, this way you can explore all of Ucraft’s premium (paid) features.

Ucraft Review

New users can gain access to their free trial from Ucraft’s homepage, and setup is as simple as one two three. After you choose the kind of page you’d like to create, you’re immediately presented with Ucraft’s small yet diverse bundle of templates.



Since Ucraft is a block-based website builder, creating websites quickly is fairly simple. The website builder has 32 templates ranging from business to personal, travel and even has the option to add a blog section to your website.


There are seven categories of templates, all of which are highly-creative and a great starting point for any size business:

Ucraft templates

  1. Business
  2. Personal
  3. Health
  4. Wedding
  5. Design
  6. Portfolio
  7. App


One of the major advantages of Ucraft is its ability to swap back and forth between templates without losing valuable content. You will, however, need to make adjustments to headings, fonts and colors — as they do not automatically adjust.


As of now, uploading your own template is not possible, however, a blank template is available.


Users can also create branded landing pages. These are usually made for conversion purposes and for collecting valuable demographic information from visitors. Ucraft landing pages do come with some restrictions, the most prevalent being the Ucraft branding at the bottom right-hand corner of each page.


The Editor


Although Ucraft’s templates are well-designed, changing elements like typography can only be done via its Designer Tool. In terms of what the editor has to offer, it does feels fairly limited, compared to other leading website builders such as Wix.


For example, elements are styled individually in Ucraft. So, if you want to change the color of all of a specific heading, you’d need to use Ucraft’s designer tool. This lets you make adjustments to buttons, headings and more.


Once you’re in the editor, and ready to customize your site — access Ucraft’s dashboard which lets you manage the following:

Bottom Line

Find Out If Ucraft is Right For Your Business

If you are looking for a website for personal branding, Ucraft is a great tool. Overall, its templates are few but quite professional looking and easy to manipulate. If you want to make changes to text, colors of text boxes, etc, you need to purchase its advanced editing tool for a monthly fee of $2.99, which is typically a feature offered for free. On the plus side, Ucraft does have a really nice free SEO App that will allow users to make proper optimizations to their website. Lastly, there are not a ton of buy-ups, which is also a plus, but there are a few along the way, and the ones that appear are likely ones you’ll need.


  • Users can add a blog to their site through Ucraft’s Articles App
  • Its editor is simple to navigate
  • All of its nearly 40 templates are free of charge
  • Free stock image access


  • As strong as eCommerce is stressed throughout the site, it uses a third party app which is not fully integrated into Ucraft
  • Difficult to make mobile optimizations
  • Limited amount of templates
