DudaOne Review

Duda needs no introduction. This revolutionary web service has already helped 5 million people convert their desktop websites into excellent, tap-friendly mobile sites. It works out-of-the box and requires minimum user intervention: just enter your site’s web address or link to your Facebook Fan Page if you have no website, and watch the smart platform building your mobile-friendly web pages right before your eyes. It’s amazing!

But converting desktop sites into mobile-friendly pages is only half the story. In addition to the converting software, Duda offers a responsive website builder allowing users to create optimized websites that will impeccably fit all screen sizes. In simple words, you can get a brand-new, responsive website of your dreams in a hassle-free and speedy manner.

#1 Ease of Use

Similar to the mobile converter, the responsive builder is incredibly easy-to-use. It auto-synchronises with your current website and social profiles like Facebook and Yelp.

All is done with a single mouse click – no need to copy and paste all your contents, upload images and restore links – everything is done automatically without affecting your site’s content.

#2 Feature Set and Flexibility

When your responsive website is ready, you can customize your website in the WYSIWYG editing mode by dragging and dropping visual objects on the canvas – no coding required.

You can create different user experiences for different devices: one view for smartphones, another for tablets etc. Duda offers a wealth of mobile-only features to help you convert your site visitors into paying customers: click-to-call, locations, custom mobile coupons etc.

DudaOne - Mobile-Only Features

For tech-savvy users, Duda devs offer Developer Mode that gives full acces to the HTML/CSS of a site.

In terms of unique functionality, Duda offers inSite, a smart tool enabling webmasters to create personalized content and deliver it to the right site visitors based on a variety of triggers. Some of these are: the time of day, the geographical location, the device your customer is using to access your website and more. There’s a library of ready InSites and the possibility to create custom triggers.

Duda also has an eCommerce solution, that allows to create onw online store even in a free package version.

But you should note that in this case you can add only up to 10 products to your store.

#3 Designs

Duda offers a collection of modern designs and blank templates. Just pick one, and your old site’s content will be pulled to the chosen template in mere minutes. No website – no worries.

You can start a responsive website from scratch using Duda. Each design has a desktop, tablet and mobile preview. Duda templates are switchable.

Those who want to customize their site through coding, can enable the Developer mode.

#4 Customer Support

Duda is a dead simple system, so you’ll hardly ever face any problems there. Anyway, there’s an impressive knowledge base comprised of step-by-step tutorials written in simple language. For Business+ customers they also offer email and phone support.

#5 Pricing Policy

There are three paid accounts and free version of the builder.  The free account comes with Duda branding and can be used only on Duda’s subdomain. Premium plans range from $14.25 to $29/mo.

These allow connecting a custom web address and unlock advanced editing features. Duda also offers a tempting White Label solution for web agencies and independent professionals.

    The DudaOne editor is diabolical, slow and clumsy even in Firefox that Duda recommend.

    • That’s strange. I tested it using Google Chrome and it was fast and smooth.

  • Steve

    My only concern with these platforms is the risk management side. If something happens to THEM, what happens to YOU (and your clients sites?)

    I don’t see how this risk management aspect can be managed with these providers. Hence open source.

    What do you think?

    • Hi Steve,

      Your fears have grounds. Just recently Wix website builder survived a malicious DDoS attack. Many website owners experienced severe interruptions (read more here: http://www.wix.com/blog/2014/03/message-from-wixs-ceo-recent-service-interruption/).

      Luckily, most site builders make regular backups, others allow easy file export (like Squarespace for instance). If a site builder shuts down forever, they always help their clients transport their sites (Jimdo offered 10% off to former Geocities users; BigCartel helped to transport Homestead Prostores accounts etc.).

        Hi… I noticed last year there were some real nice coupon codes for dudaone site for life but nothing this year. Any help would be appreciated and I love this duda one site and it’s absolutely incredible, I’m just trying to save a few dollars so I can convert my Dinosaur site into the future. Thank You !!

    • Valid point. I’m on this site right now reviewing alternate website builder options because Weebly is having problems. I’m suspicious about Dudaone since it’s relatively new.

  • zack

    this is the most frustratingly slow and confusing sight to build a web sight possible. Dont even think about using it.

    • I’m surprised to see so many extremely negative comments about Duda. It was fast and effective when I tested it.

  • Discusser

    Duda one’s mobile editor has an advertisement, which cannot be removed in its mobile editor’s free version. This may be discouraging for some, as the ad in Wix is also like that.

    • Yes, they do have an advert in their free version, and I think it’s quite normal. It takes many reosources to support free accounts, so I think the advert is justified. You can get rid of the ad by upgrading your account.

  • UT RF

    I love Duda. Duda does have a strong learning curve however, if you give yourself time, you’ll learn it. I did notice though that when I download and use Chrome, Chrome is much faster then Firefox when using Duda. However, Chrome brings in spyware. Any suggestions for a faster Browser other then Firefox or Chrome when using Duda? And one that doesn’t bring in spyware?

  • RonH

    Nice tool, many features. Can not add more that 5 tabs without going to a “more” tab. It also does not work with tablets for editing. PLUS no email tie in. You need to use your registrar. Weebly seems to offer all the above. Not as many templates with weebly.

  • Tomasas

    I like Duda, bet site.pro is my favorit 🙂

  • Karinakar

    Yeah, good one! However, very similar with site.pro, which, actually has more pros than Duda, like, for example, working from different devices, etc.
