Our editor tool then allows you to customize the mobile version of your site. After you convert your site to mobile, we keep the two sites - your desktop and your 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.
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 page and we’ll do the rest. You can see our templates here:

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 and accessible for mobile devices.
Does the Duda 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 sites. You can only upload images to Duda 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.
