13 million hits in first three days of new Vatican City State website

.- The General  Secretary of the Governorate of the Vatican City State, Bishop Renato Boccardo, said that since its launch, the Vatican City’s new website www.vaticanstate.va “received 13 million hits during the first three days.”

“The objective of this site is to offer a good service to pilgrims and tourists,” the bishop explained.  “Therefore I think it is necessary to use the modern means, as was always the desire of John Paul II and now Benedict XVI,” he said.

“We are in the heart of Vatican City State, called the ‘Governorate.’ This is where the administration of this small State is.  This is also where the server for the new site is,” he continued.

The new site’s webmaster, Eugenio Hasler, said, “The Vatican is very complex.  Its interior is divided into sectors.  We have, for example, the Holy See, the State, etc.  Therefore we thought that we would present these facts through the new website in order to provide information about the departments, sectors and officials that are here.”

“This is something new for the Vatican and it has attracted many people. Its one of the reasons the site has had so many visitors,” Hasler said.
