In additional to their mobile-only site builder DudaOne offers a multi-screen website builder that creates one website optimized for desktop, tablet and mobile.
Summary of Pros
- Easy to use editor
Despite all the features that comes with your website builder plan, DudaOne's editor is simplistic. It follows the same interface design as most other website builders – it shows your full website with a collapsible editing toolbar and a header toolbar for site options. You can preview your website on desktop, tablets and mobile devices, you can also edit your website in any of these viewing modes.
Edit by device
While DudaOne doesn't come with a mobile editor, every element on your website can be customized on a per device basis, giving full control over the site.
Duda inSite is a tool that lets you create elements that appear only when certain conditions are met. With inSite, you can create personalized web content and deliver it to the right visitors based on a variety of triggers. Some of these triggers include the time of day (ie. display your restaurant's lunch menu at lunch time), geographical location, the device your customer is using to access your website and more. Duda inSite is a Duda-built tool and is included in all DudaOne plans.
DudaOne lets you save a version of your website so you will be able to restore it anytime you want. In addition, each time you publish your website, an automated backup copy of your website is created. All backups are stored within your editor for easy access and management.
Every site element includes the option to add an entrance animation. Choices include fade in, bounce in and zoom in. Each element also comes with a CSS and HTML editor that lets you customize the element at the code level.
DudaOne comes with a list of mobile-only features to help you add more functionality to your mobile website. These features include click-to- call, mobile map and mobile coupons.
Summary of Cons
No mobile editor
DudaOne doesn't come with a mobile editor, but every element in DudaOne can be customized on a per device basis – you can hide an element on the tablet or mobile version of your website, so you can customize the mobile look of your website to some extent.
Limited photo gallery layout options
When adding a photo gallery, you don't get as many choices and settings as you would with Wix or Website.com. There is only the grid and masonry gallery layouts available, or you can add an image slider.
No domain or email services
While most website builders come with a free 1-year domain registration, DudaOne doesn't offer any free domain. In fact, DudaOne doesn't even offer any domain registration services – you cannot purchase a domain from them. If you need to purchase a domain name, you will need to do so through the Hover integration within your DudaOne dashboard.
No email services
Just as you won't be able to purchase your domain directly from Duda, Duda also doesn't offer any domain email services and you won't be able to set up your domain email addresses (ie. [email protected]) with Duda. If you need domain email accounts, you can purchase an email service plan separately from Hover.
No live chat or phone support
For support, DudaOne offers a very extensive knowledgebase and email support. Unfortunately, there is no live chat support or phone support available – phone and live chat support is reserved for the DudaPro (reseller plan) users only.
