Pope Francis I - Hundreds of domain name already registered with keywords of his name


Just shortly after the announcement of the world's new Roman Catholic leader is named, more than 600 domain names were registered at GoDaddy with keywords such as Pope, Bergoglio, and Habemus Papam.

The newly registered domain names contained keywords such as Pope, Francis, Bergoglio, and Habemus Papam, which is the Latin translation for "We have a pope." Interestingly, a forward-thinking GoDaddy customer already registered the domain name PopeFrancis.com in April 2010.

This sharp thinking individuals had registered the domains with a keyword of  Pope Francis I - Jorge Mario Bergoglio names for a reason which could be - to sell.

Anyone can register a name, sit on it, and sell it to whoever will pay top dollar. According to the BBC, PopeBenedictXVI.com was sold for more than $5,000 in 2005.

#ForwardThinking and #SharpThinking Individuals. Lol
