About Digital Opera

We specialize in transforming small businesses’ online presence with genuine results.

With a combination of open-source and custom solutions,
we make sure you own everything and you are fiercely protected on the web.

Our responsive and accountable approach means no surprise bills,
just consistent growth and performance.

…but we’d rather help you become one. We don’t need applause or awards. We stay curious, question everything, and get our greatest joy from great results.

Continual improvement is achieved via continual optimization of every aspect of your website and marketing, from our infrastructure to your interface. 

We build your website with either open source software or custom software you own, and we make it as portable as possible so everything we build is yours, and yours alone to do with what you like. 

We’ve got some of the best engineers & creative types available. The kind of people that recruiters never stop trying to snag to go work at top tech and massive agencies. We’ve all done that and like working our select clients much better.  

We do not harvest or sell your data. That is yours. Period. 

All of our people and infrastructure is located in the United States, with the exception of some overseas backup, DNS, and caching servers. 

We take results serious, and even if its tough on us, we give you honest reports so you can see what is working and what can be improved. 

Wherever we can, we automate repeated or just boring tasks to save your valuable time. That keeps you working on what fires you up.

The sites and applications we manage earn over


a year for people just like you.


Don’t need them. We’ve grown through automation, online sales, and word of mouth.

We’ve eliminated office space and all that goes with it: Office politics and bureaucracy that hinder great work.

Multiple data centers, redundant backbone access, redundant power supplies, 4X a day backups, enterprise-class hardware, and more.

We built software in 1994 and began developing with WordPress in 2005.

We’ve got people from Maine to California, Washington to Florida, and Minnesota to Arizona, and several places in between.

And we intend to stay that way. We don’t see an advantage to a board of directors and shareholders getting in the way. 



1994-2000. Software development, hosting and web development. Clients included Universities, video production companies, increasingly larger businesses. 

I was in hell for 4 years.

I merged Randomworx into a another company without proper due diligence and spent four years (2000-2004) in hell trying to rectify my mistake. 

Fuse Cafe

2005-2007 – I created websites of my own that did very well, and provided services to a select few companies as Fuse Cafe. 


2008-2012 Realized yeah, we are a digital agency with software creation capabilities. Grew entirely via word of mouth. 

2012 to present. Because absolutely no one ever pronounced Podomani (Poe Dough MAH knee) correctly. 


We use only the best, starting from data centers with multiple power sources, backbone internet access, backup generators, and 24/7/365 fully staffed NOC control. 

Our hardware is update date, and we only use enterprise-class CPUs, SSD drivers, and hardware RAID. 

Finally, the partners we choose to house, maintain, secure, and back up your sites are people we have been working with for decades that we trust.

The Tribe of Digital Opera

The Tribes of 1 @ DigitalOpera

Each of our people is successful in their own right, and we chose to work together. We also choose to live in different parts of the U.S., which works very well with covering time zones.

Letting good people concentrate without interruption in a place they do their best work lets each of us enjoy what we love doing all day even more.


Many of our people operate part-time digital businesses that are hosted here at Digital Opera. This allows us to provide our own feedback, without sending you annoying surveys.

Eating our own dog food also helps us to continually improve every aspect of Digital Opera, as well as providing testing grounds for bleeding-edge tech that once we know is stable, we can apply to your website.
