The modules of uCoz CMS can be used either in combination to build a full-featured website, or separately, e.g. as a blog platform, webforum etc. uCoz takes the 13th place among the sites for Russian-speaking users according to Alexa Internet.
Initially the basis of the service development was formed by the combined experience of several developers, which consisted in previous work over such services as poll and free guestbooks, as well as professional CMS script (WoCatalog Pro). After almost a year of development, on October 29, 2005, the world saw the Russian version of the system. In June 2007, the English version was officially presented, and in August — the German one.
