Duda

Seeing Duda’s website and going through a bunch of Duda reviews on the internet, you will very easily figure that their primary motto is to let you build Responsive Websites Easily and Quickly. Let’s dive in and see how good they are at that and how Duda, in general, is as a website builder.

Duda has DudaOne to let you build websites both for desktops and mobile devices and DudaMobile is specialized in building websites only for mobile devices. I tested how easy it is to build a website with DudaOne, how fast websites built on DudaOne load,  features and integrations it has, how fairly is it priced and how search engine friendly websites built on DudaOne are. The results are presented here as a  Duda Review. I will repeat soon experiment with DudaMobile websites to present you a complete dudamobile review.

Is Duda website builder for you?

Read on and by the end of this short article, you will have your answer.

Usability:

Everything in Duda dashboard is quite easy to figure out. If you are already familiar with building websites before, using Duda will be even easier. Customizing the themes in Duda is easier with design editor. Changing color in themes, changing fonts in different areas, changing colors and fonts of all heading types used on a website, increasing or decreasing line height is all possible with Duda design editor if you can just point and click. Customizing navigation menus according to your needs is also easy. You can even check and customize different menus for mobile devices.  Along with these, options like redo, undo, header customization, editing button text, options to add different elements to the page, managing popups, pages are all easy if you can just spend a couple of hours with the system. The preview option in lets you test the look of your site on all devices makes it easy to build responsive websites.

The bottom line is if you are fluent in using web browsers and don’t get confused with an overwhelming number of options, Duda is very easy to use! Although it is easy, it might take more time to set up compared to others.

Design

Duda website builder offers 91 templates. Comparatively, Strikingly website builder offers only 11 templates which is one of the lowest amount of templates offered and Wix offers 510 which is one of the highest amounts of templates offered. Compared to them Duda falls in the average range for the number of themes. Duda one templates have a flexible design and you can add your template or simply customize one that they already offer.

Loading Speed

This is one area where most of the website builders cannot compete with custom coded websites. So loading speeds of even the best website builder might look bad for you if you are a developer or have worked with websites before.  I tested loading speed of bunch Duda website examples,  I used GTmetrix to test Duda’s loading time and it came out to 5.6 seconds which is on the faster side compared to other website builders. A quick loading time is important when it comes to creating your website.

xResponsive

Started as a website builder primarily for mobile phones, Duda is, without a doubt, one of the best option to create mobile friendly websites. They include latest technologies to make their product completely responsive. Although by default the system is responsive, they additionally provide more options to tweak your website design for the view you desire on mobile devices.

SEO

Alongside being responsive, Duda is also SEO friendly. Duda like many other website builders, allows you to customize your URLs, edit metadata, add a favicon and social images. Additionally, Duda websites load faster and render well on all devices to fetch more love from Search Engines.

Integration

With Duda, there are about 25 apps that you can use for your website. Compared to other website builders, this is the category where Duda fall short. There are only a few basic integration options that Duda has making it not a perfect option for businesses who are looking for something more than just a responsive website

Support

While using Duda you have a couple support options. They don’t offer Skype questions or email inquiries but they do offer phone call support and support via live chat. I asked my question using their live chat at 1:48 pm and was answered at 1:53 pm so it took about five minutes. A five minute response time is very helpful when trying to get support in a timely matter so if you’re having an issue you can get help with it and fix it as soon as possible.

Features

Blogging

If you are using Duda for a personal blog you can publish posts, schedule posts to be published in the future and use different levels of editing. Unfortunately, you can not send out newsletters. It seems like a good website builder for blog creating.

Restore options

Restorative options can be extremely useful while building your website. Duda has a “go back” feature to restore previous actions however you cannot restore an entire page or site once you have deleted it.

Interactivity

Interactivity can be very important for some when creating their own website. There are three major ways that you can interact with your audience when using Duda. You can create popups on your site, you can offer membership for your readers and you can also interact with your audience through the comment section on your site.

Conclusion

The pros offered with Duda website builder are that for the first time template there is a built in tool to set up appointments online, there is a built in Sublime code editor, you can add a backup site, it has a flexible design and you can add your own template and there five different levels of editing. The cons are that when working with the image button, the “edit” option didn’t work and it only offers basic integrations and if you are wanting to do more complex edits you will most likely need the help from a tech support person. Another downfall of Duda is the lengthy time it takes to set up a website. An entire day is a long time so if you’re looking to make a website quickly, Duda probably isn’t the website builder for you.  In my opinion, Duda website builder would work best for someone who has a team to work with on the website, someone who wants to create a blog, someone who wants to create an online store and someone who already knows basic HTML/CSS functions. If you don’t fit into these categories, I wouldn’t recommend Duda website builder for you.

    I have been using Duda Mobile-only sites for a few years now. I needed mobile-version websites created quickly and easily, and all for a great price. Overall pretty satisfied. Pros: price, user-friendly design platform, seo settings, fair amount of options Cons: I get some issues with the fonts rendering incorrectly when published, even when they are correct on the editor end. Also weird issues sometimes with the paragraph boxes. I’ve found that when this happens, my solution is to delete all the page’s text and re-paste in a new paragraph box.

    I have 3 websites for which I have added mobile apps using Duda. I was very impressed with how easy it was to set this up and how inexpensive it was. After the setup was complete, I checked my iphone and almost immediately, after 1 or 2 clicks to add app to my homescreen, the apps were there, easily accessible for anyone to see. The pages were complete, not truncated. Every bit of content that was on my websites was immediately accessible on all my mobile devices including my searchboxes which actually worked. The bottom line is that it’s easy, it’s inexpensive and it just works!

    Duda Responsive Site. The price was right for a lifetime site. Customer Service is well above average. However, I have a highly intensive graphic site. For some reason, many of the images are imported squished. (aspect ratio is not maintained and the horizontal is reduced.) Each one then has to be adjusted and some times it works, most of the time it does not. After each attempt at an adjustment, I have to go to the preview to see if it worked. If I am with a client, I encourage them to use the “classic” look (available at the bottom of the home page) which keeps the desk top look which has the correct aspect ratio. For a highly graphic site, I have my doubts that this is the best platform, but the price and service appear to be good. (Note: have not been able to address this aspect ratio issue with customer service.) Editing for movement of images is not intuitive.

    After initial setup, requires minimal maintenance as our website data flows through to mobile website well. One limitation is that Google ads are generally constrained to limited choice, although more advanced programmers can extend those limitations. Was able to customize pages based on our business goals. Very little downtime.

    Duda Mobile was incredibly easy to create and establish. I had it up and running in less than a few hours. It quickly established my business on the internet and more so Duda provided me a means to reach smart phone users with an easy to navigate mobile web site versus the old style PC formatting. I have stopped using my old style and depend solely on Duda Mobile to update my business and reach out to more potential clients through their system. With a small fee you can eliminate pop up ads and there’s even a lifetime price to eliminate monthly fees. Amazing system for even those with very little computer knowledge!

    I appreciated Duda for the ease it was to convert intuits web site platform tho. I also appreciated the stats being emailed To me … one thing I would likely recommend would be ( and maybe you do this but I didn’t take the time to read it) is to put a graphic in the stats to tell People “want to raise this stat ? click for more info” which might help drive more sales for Your development team . Those that already know how to do it Might appreciate a little Tip From the dev team, but those that are lost might just decide that they want that stat increased … just a thought

    The mobile website builder through DUDAMOBILE is fantastic. It is easy to use, and works well with out site design. I use the plugin through wordpress. Easy peazy. We did have a technical issue caused by a filtering service that I use to prevent DDOS and other attacks, and a setting in there was causing issues with the mobile redirect. The tech team at DUDA rolled up their sleeves and found the issue and helped me fix it. I love DUDA as it is easy and support is great. Dave

    We have used Duda Website builder for several years. I think they were one of the first to offer website builder for mobile. It’s easy to use. Pricing is very reasonable. We haven’t really had to do much updating or maintenance. We were very happy to have the option to mobilize our website finally.

    It took me a long time to find a company like Duda. They are tremendous. They are always updating and growing. They have an amazing support staff that always helps me. I am slowly putting as many clients as I can on Duda. SSL is free, Templates for life…great pricing for Mom and Pops.

    I have been using Duda for 2 years and I use for the mobile version of our company site. Duda best thing going for it is as a mobile platform. I rate my self above average on website creation and how and what is important. People need to realize that it is not always how cool a web site looks but how effective their call to action works. The one site fits all does not necessarily work for me and the disadvantage of having a separate desktop and mobile site for us is negated by how much we can utilize duda mobile platform for a precise and efficient presence to our mobile visitors which is over 70%. Duda platform fits us very well for what we need our visitors to experience. Of course dudas biggest weakness is there support, I really loathe companies that try to send you to a link for everything and don’t have a contact number.. I seeth thinking about it When I want to call support that means I have read everything and tried to fix or find an answer. As a business I need that great support, We use a company Shipworks for our shipping and they are so on point with service that I never worry about anything with them. Duda does have a great product for me which allows me to stick with them but oh how much better it would be for them to provide a better support system I’m always puzzled why Duda has such a good product and fails miserably with support. So as I tell everyone Duda is pretty good but support sucks and it has been like that for years now and I guess as of now I will take it but I’m sure one day I will tell them to shove it

    NO CUSTOMER service online! no live chat. FOR a paid account that is ridiculous. The ONLY time they will appear to be ‘AVAILABLE” and willing to use their live chat; is to sell you an upgrade. I wish i would have never built my site on this platform. I have a paid account; and a free account; BOTH have equal customer service; hence why i did NOT pay for the 2nd.

    I’ve been using DudaMobile.com for several years. Until the last couple of years, I maintained a free account for the most part. However, when I built my FixMyComputer.Today website, I chose to try Duda’s new platform instead of Mobirise or some other option (other site builders I have, a templated site requiring modification or whatever). It was very easy and inexpensive, even with SSL included in my paid option for that site. I’ve tested on several devices from large screen TVs, various monitor sizes, 15 and 17 inch laptops, a 10″ tablet, and cell phones as small as 320px by 480 px in both portrait and landscape mode and have had no issues to report in my testing. I would highly recommend them if you want a fast, easy way to build a site that is compatible, display-wise, with pretty much all devices.

    Love the ease of use, the choice of templates and the pricing can’t be beat. I’ve used many website “builders”. Clients often come to us having used one and need us to manage them and usually we cringe because we generally despise the ones on the market. That’s not the case with Duda. It’s so simple, a sixth grader could probably do it! 🙂 Super intuitive, great flexibility. I can’t say enough about this product. Hands down, the best I’ve ever seen/used.

    The very best choice I could have done at the time. I needed a mobile site fast and reasonable with had images of my main site as well. Went internet surfing with a I.T programmer just to see what was out st the time, we found Duda they showed examples of buttons and lay outs so after a little looking and reading in less than 15 minutes we had a full running mobile.website and for the cost no one could touch anything they provided value and speed and working functions at a very reasonable price plus you could pay a one time life time fee we which we took advantage of. A company that stands behind you with top quality Custmore Service and company’s and staff none better for what we needed and wanted at the time for a fair price I was just blown away to get it all from this company and do fast. They really have a great convert for your main site to a mobile site, and after words run it past Google Checker Google said I mobile site passed with flying colors in all of it Than You Sam Smyth President/ Service Mananger of mobile.smythimports.com

    We had created a mobile website using Duda mobile and were happy with the results. As such, when we decided it was time to ditch our old website and create a modern, interactive site, we chose Duda. I loved that I was able to easily adapt an existing template to our design specifications. I additionally loved that I did not need to learn a new web design platform to create a fabulous site. The Duda web builder is simple enough for a beginner to use yet offer options for more advance sites. I also love that my new site is compatible with tablets and phones without needing a separate site. I highly recommend Duda.

    I am NOT a tech expert (quite far from it, actually), but I was able to easily navigate through the process of building a mobile website using Duda. I built it several years ago so I am assuming they have made some changes to make it even more intuitive.I would definitely use Duda again in the future when we redesign our site.

    The software is fast to learn and easy to use. If you want to do complex design, you will have to add html sections or edit their css or html code, which they do allow. If I was going to build a new website using WordPress or Duda. No doubt, I would use Duda, very user friendly.

    The Duda system for mobilizing my website was ridiculously easy, well thought through, and it just works. Besides just making my site work for mobile devices, it has easy options to add a cool look and feel factor. And it includes a little link at the bottom for classic desktop mode if mobile users still want that. I once had a technical issue and their support team addressed it really quickly. Overall, very well done and I’ve been impressed!
