Brazil’s UOL Teams Up With Duda to Offer a Faster & More Flexible Website Builder

By Stephen Alemar

Palo Alto, Calif. — Universo Online, the largest internet company in Brazil, and the industry-leading web design platform, Duda, have teamed up to enable UOL’s customers to build beautiful responsive websites incredibly quickly.    

Getting our customers’ businesses online needs to be a frictionless process. We have to enable an SMB owner to build an incredible website in less than an hour, and the platform has to cater to the needs of someone with low-to-no technical skills,” said Roosevelt Nascimento, Head of Product for UOL Host.

Nascimento and his team at UOL evaluated the Duda platform on six critical criteria:

  • Editor & Features
  • Templates & Mobile-Friendliness
  • PageSpeed & Marketing Opportunities
  • Technology & API
  • Support
  • Pricing

“We reviewed eight leading website builders and spent more than three months pouring over every aspect of the Duda platform before making our decision,” said Nascimento. “Duda immediately stood out from the rest of the market and is simply the best website builder for UOL’s customers.”  

Duda’s award-winning website builder has been integrated with dozens of hosting platforms across the globe and is localized for more than 11 languages, including Spanish and Portuguese.  

“We’ve seen a lot of growth at Duda in LATAM.” said Alan Keller, Chief Revenue Officer of Duda. “The Latin American market, and Brazil in particular, is incredibly exciting and very important for Duda. To partner with UOL, the largest media company in Brazil, is a great honor and provides us with a fantastic opportunity to learn and address the needs of Brazilian small business owners,” said Keller.

Duda and UOL will also co-present on the main stage at World Hosting Days USA, which takes place September 11-12, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Topics covered will include the importance of quick load times in 2017 and how to select a website builder for your hosting company.
