Technical Questions

Can I use my own web address?

Yes! Just enter your current website URL at www.dudamobile.com and instantly create a mobile site. Our technology automatically converts existing desktop sites into mobile sites in seconds. Our editor tool then allows you to customize the mobile version of your site. After converting your site to mobile, we keep the two sites (your desktop and mobile site) in sync, so that any changes made to your desktop site automatically appear on your mobile site.

What if I don’t already have a web address?

You will need to have a domain name or URL. There are many popular domain name services such as GoDaddy, 1and1, Register.com and Yahoo where you can purchase a domain. Once you have your domain name, you can create a mobile site from scratch. Choose a template, enter your Facebook organization’s page and we’ll do the rest. You can see our templates here:http://www.dudamobile.com/create/templates

How do I track my website’s statistics?

Website stats are available from your DudaMobile dashboard. Content Data, Traffic Sources, Devices, and Geographical Location information are all available.

What types of design template choices will I have?

You can choose a template if you are building from scratch. However, our technology automatically converts existing desktop sites into mobile sites in seconds. Our editor then allows you to customize the mobile version of your site. After converting your site to mobile, we keep the two sites (your desktop and mobile site) in sync, so that any changes you make to your desktop site that you want to appear on your mobile site will always happen automatically. No need for a template.

How does DudaMobile's technology work?

DudaMobile analyzes your desktop site by identifying the colors, logos, images, content and navigation. Duda then looks for other services such as Facebook, Yelp, OpenTable, Twitter, Locu and more and pulls in that information as well to build your mobile site. Duda uses this information to reorganize the objects and content it finds in a way that's pleasing for users and accessible on mobile devices.

Does the DudaMobile Non-Profit Program limit the number of media, text and files on my site?

The terms of service for regular customers are the same for approved non-profit organizations with Premium sites. You can only upload images to DudaMobile and there’s a practical limit to the number of pages and images a mobile site will support. The basic rule of a mobile site is to keep it short and simple. We generally have no need to impose a limit on the number of pages, text or images.
