In advance of the book launch later in December I’ve been doing a little preparation. It turns out that Github is proving not just a useful location for the source code but that it also is an excellent place to host the book’s website/landing page.
I turned to gandi.net for my domain registration and in keeping with several other O’Reilly authors, I chose a .info domain. I decided on the short, simple, and available mongodbbook.info domain name.

This minor additions allow for attribution to my twitter handle as well as providing a sitemap xml file and a atom feed file. The Sitemap file allowed me to submit it to Bing, Google, and Yandex to allow it to be crawled a little sooner than if left to the automated crawler searches.
