Duda sprang from the introduction of one of the most revolutionary devices of the 21st century: the smartphone. Amir Glatt and Itai Sadan, friends since college and SAP co-workers, were doing what most tech lovers were in early 2008 - drooling over the release of the first iPhone. But it quickly became apparent to them that browsing websites on a mobile device was not a great experience.
They also realized that large companies with vast resources would easily deal with this new medium, but creating a solid mobile experience was going to be a big challenge for most small- and medium-sized businesses due to a lack of budget and technical know-how. Clearly, someone needed to level the playing field. And so, they founded Duda.
Officially launched in 2010, Duda is now a leading responsive website builder for web professionals and agencies, enabling them to build fast, modern websites for their customers without having to invest in hours of costly development time.
Duda has partnered with some of the biggest players in the industry, including GoDaddy, AT&T, Yahoo!, Google, Homestead, OpenTable and DreamHost. Duda is based in Palo Alto, California and currently hosts more than 9 million websites. Duda has won multiple awards over the years, and was ranked 224 in Deloitte’s Fast 500 list for 2016. In 2017, Duda was named PCMag Editor’s Choice website builder.
Oh, Duda? Duda is a variation of "Dude", who just happens to be the main character in one of our favorite movies of all time: The Big Lebowski. You should watch it some time. Look out for that ferret!
