Ease of use
Powerful Yet Simplified.
There is no doubt that BaseKit offers a pretty robust builder for those in telcos who need a powerful website. With that in mind, the drag and drop functionality does simplify the process of building your site. Designing pages is only a matter of dragging and dropping elements where you see fit. This functionality also makes it incredibly easy to add widgets such as social media buttons, Google Maps, and contact forms.
Advanced Access for Greater Flexibility and Control.
Up front, BaseKit makes it very clear that the only way to contact them is through submitting a request through a contact form powered by Zen Desk. The support team is only available from 8am to 8pm GMT Monday to Friday.
There is neither phone support nor live chat, which is hardly surprising, but the lack of immediate channels of communication can be frustrating.
On the plus side, BaseKit has done a good job with its documentation. There are plenty of well-organized articles, tutorials, and update notes that will get you up to speed with the site builder and with any new developments.
Prices That Give Value for Money.
BaseKit offers a free 14-day trial, after which you can upgrade to one of the three plans available.
The Basic plan gets you 10 pages and a whopping 1TB of bandwidth.
The Business plan comes with unlimited pages, unlimited bandwidth, Adwords integration, and eCommerce options.
The Professional plan also offers unlimited pages, bandwidth, and storage in addition to three domains and capacity to host three websites.
