How can we help you?

WordPress Design & Development Specialists

We’ve been building WordPress sites for over 10 years and HTML sites and shopping carts for 20 years. Our aim is to build affordable, reliable websites so that you can spend your time on your business, not on your website.

Things we can do for your existing site:

  • Security audit
  • Site speed optimization
  • Debug a WordPress theme/plugin conflict
  • Find a reliable plugin or theme to fit your specific needs
  • Regular WordPress updates (tested on a staging site)
  • Content updates
  • Complete redesign

Types of projects that we often do:

  • Basic brochure type websites
  • WooCommerce shopping carts
  • Real estate websites
  • Membership websites
  • Custom post types and custom search

Plugins/Themes that we use regularly:

  • Genesis Framework Themes
  • Divi / Extra by Elegant Themes
  • Beaver Builder
  • WooCommerce
  • SearchWP
  • Toolset
  • LearnDash

We have no minimum project requirement.  If you need a 5 minute fix on your website, we’re happy to help and will only charge you for the actual time spent.

Who Are We?

Annie Middleton


Annie began tinkering on the web in 1997 and quickly got a job at a local company.  During her 8 years there, she built everything from basic brochure sites to highly customized eCommerce applications.  In 2005, she decided to branch out and start her own company.  She enjoys learning new things and working to find the best solution to meet a client’s need.

Paul Middleton

Developer, Annie's brother

Paul started working with Annie in 2001.  Paul works with WordPress, PHP, “HTML, ColdFusion, MySQL, MSSQL, CSS, JavaScript, AJAX and all that fun stuff.”

Sherry Sink


We were introduced to Sherry through a family member in 2013.  She was attending college for Digital Media and Design and emailed us with a few questions about a big project she was working on for school.  We were impressed with her ability to take the information we gave her and run with it as well as her attention to detail and design expertise, so we decided to hire her before she even graduated.

Got a Project? Have a Question? We'd love to help!

Thank you so much for your great work on our project. I was in a real bind when our site went down and you were very accommodating in getting a temporary site and then creating our final e-commerce site. It looks great and you were easy to work with. It came on budget and quicker than I expected – as a bonus, the site looks great.

Thank you!

Thank you for all this info and for continually responding to our needs. I’m always grateful for the way you handle yourself and have expressed this again to John. You have integrity, work hard, make no pretenses. I just want you know how much I appreciate that.

After spending 10’s of thousands of dollars with unprofessional and overpriced programmers, I was thrilled to discover Nine Planets. Not only are they reasonably priced, they also manage every detail and get the job done quickly. Nine Planets has developed a number of very sophisticated databases for my online businesses. In every case they have responded quickly and exceeded my very specific requirements. There is nobody better and they won’t let you down.
