Whether you’re building one site or a thousand, efficiency and flexibility are two of the most desirable traits in a website builder. The Duda platform encapsulates both, and incredibly well. The company, founded in 2009, focuses on providing sites designed for SMBs that encourage customer conversion. Web professionals (via a partner program) and SMBs are provided with access to a fully responsive website builder (DudaOne), as well as a mobile-only solution for those not looking to do a full site redesign (DudaMobile).
What makes the Duda platform different is the ability to automatically import content, greatly cutting-down on development time. Using a unique algorithm, Duda is able to pull the content from an existing website, reorganize it, and place it into a beautiful template with a single click. Once inside the editor, the platform’s intuitive drag-and-drop editor makes customizing the site a breeze for even the most basic of users. However, this doesn’t mean the platform is by any means restrictive. Built on the Foundation responsive framework, Duda does the heavy lifting, but still provides full access to the CSS3 and HTML5 for further customization.
Another key component that sets this website builder apart is the ability to customize by device. Users can individually edit content for desktop, tablet and mobile views. This adds a significant amount of creative flexibility while maintaining one URL, which is better for SEO.
Duda is built for performance with numerous platform integrations including: PayPal, OpenTable, Facebook, Yelp, vCita, Constant Contact and more. These are combined with business-driving widgets and modern template designs that drive user engagement. In addition, Duda provides full access to CSS3 and HTML5 for full editing power.
Duda Partners are provided with an extensive array of white labeled tools including: a full version of the Duda editor; client dashboard and login page; site preview screens and more. All the URLs for these various tools are under the partner’s domain name, and the display of each one is customizable (to match the partners color scheme, logo, etc.).
When it comes to support, the company prides itself on having comprehensive phone and email support. Phone support is available Mon.-Fri., 6AM-6PM PT.
Currently, Duda has over 5 million sites on their platform, and is constantly pushing out new innovations and features that make it faster and easier than ever to create business websites.
