Hi. We're Sononaco.

Custom web apps • WordPress & Drupal • Managed Hosting • Enterprise E-Mail

A little about us...

We are a full-service web development agency providing web application development and hosting services. We work with organizations and companies of all sizes and budgets.

We are small and we like it that way. It allows us to work closely with you while having resources and talent available when needed.

We strive to provide the best services from the ground-up. This includes secure and reliable hosting, forward-thinking and future-proof site planning, properly built, secure and maintainable code, thorough testing and training and extensive follow-through.

(And BTW. We're code and design people, not word people. Our clients hire us for our technical prowess, not our fancy wordsmithing skills.)

What we do:

WordPress

We are WordPress experts, and darn proud of it. Installing a theme or a plugin does not make one a WordPress developer. We craft plugins unique to your needs as well as develop original and adapt existing themes and host high-demand sites on custom servers & clusters.

Hosting

Our hosting services are tailored to your individual needs and specifications. You will not find any tiers or packages which lock you into paying for resources you do not need. We cannot nor do we want to compete with $1 hosting. Instead, we provide hands-on hosting that is secure, reliable and scalable. Find out what makes us different from junk hosting companies.

Enterprise E-Mail

We have partnered with Kerio, offering e-mail, shared calendars, tasks, address books & instant messaging with easy desktop & mobile setup. It also runs on our own secure, private servers. And we never, ever read your email.

Custom Application Development

One-size-fits-all works great for socks and hats. As web technologies evolve it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find off-the-shelf software solutions to meet your organization’s specific needs. So if you can dream it, we can build it.

SononaCare

SononaCare is our maintenance and protection program which secures, protects and monitors all of your WordPress and Drupal sites. We perform daily checks on your site and perform hands-on updates to ensure your sites are backed up before any updates are applied. This level of personal protection ensures that if anything goes wrong we will have a reliable backup in place.

SononaCare also protects you from malware infections. If your site is ever hacked we will clean it for you at no additional cost.

We work with non-profits, small-to-mid-sized business and associations. Here are just a few of the companies we are proud to work with.

How about an onslaught of 1.5 million unexpected visitors over July 4th weekend? OK!

By Keith Hall | July 6, 2017

The Friday before the 4th of July weekend we got word that a story on our client’s site, SammichesPsychMeds.com was struggling to handle a sudden traffic surge. We have hosted Sammiches & Psych Meds, a parenting, humor, and lifestyle website for a couple of years, which generally gets between 5,000 and 20,000 visits per day. Prior…

[nginx/php-fpm] curl: (56) SSLRead() return error -9806: how we fixed it

By Keith Hall | June 13, 2017

tl;dr: Back up /etc/nginx, uninstall nginx, install the latest version of nginx, restore your /etc/nginx backup. Recently our own site was experiencing SSL connection issues. We first noticed it in Safari when connecting to sononaco.com and another site we host on the same server, both using SSLs. Oddly enough, another site hosted on the same…

CodeinWP: Are Maintenance Companies worth the Money or DIY?

By Keith Hall | June 6, 2017

Since we launched SononaCare we have noticed an uptick in companies offering similar plans. This is a solid indicator of the growing demand for WordPress security. WordPress has always touted itself as being simple to use and it is — until something goes wrong. Nobody dreams of getting a WSOD (White Screen of Death) with no or outdated backups and…
