Ten years of beautiful websites

Since 2008, we’ve been helping people to find success online. 

The first version
of BaseKit is born

Originally created as an internal tool for the web design agency Simon was running, he, Richard Best and Richard Fernandez quickly realised that the product they had created was something they could offer to other small businesses to help them build an online presence.

The founders win
Seedcamp

BaseKit brought the founders success at Seedcamp, giving them the connections and resources they needed to set up the company’s first office, based in the same Chepstow office in which the idea was originally born, and take on the first team members – several of whom are still with the company today!

Our first B2B partnership

Our first partnership was signed in 2010, allowing us to seize the opportunity to help small businesses via partners. Fast forward 10 years and we now have over 120 incredible partners, spanning 5 continents.

BaseKit moves to Bristol

Leaving Chepstow behind for the buzzing tech hub of Bristol, we made the move across the Severn Bridge to a central office in The Pithay, giving us more space and boosting recruitment opportunities.

V7 goes live; our first time at WHD

With the product in its 7th version, allowing you to build responsive websites for the first time, we exhibited at WHD (now CloudFest) for the first time in 2013, and we’ve been going back ever since.

Our first telco customer

In 2014, we signed a partnership with Telefónica, marking an important moment in our move into the world of telecommunications.

A new office and a new (but familiar) CEO

Continued growth meant saying goodbye to our first Bristol home, and saying hello to our current office in the brand new One Castlepark building. In the same year, co-founder Simon took the exciting step of becoming CEO, 7 years after the idea for the company was born.

BaseKit 8 goes live

Marking the first version of the editor to be completely accessible on all devices, BK8 went live in June of 2018.

Go Sitebuilder
is created

In 2017, we created a brand new app, which serves as a faster route to market for non-hosting companies, opening us up to new opportunities and regions.

BK10 is launched

To coincide with our 10th anniversary, we launched our most user-friendly product ever this year, saying goodbye to drag and drop and hello to beautiful pre-built sections.

What’s next? Stay tuned!
