Not even the Internet stood unaffected by the announcement of the new pope.

According to GoDaddy.com Public Relations Specialist Kari Amarosso, 479 new domains were registered in relation to the pope within the first hour of the announcement of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope Francis.

Strangely enough, a domain under the name of PopeFrancis.com was already registered in April 2010.

Keywords that were to identify the new domains were pope, Francis, Bergoglio, and Habemus Papam.
