Legitimate online pharmacies and pharmacy-related websites need a way to stand out against the overwhelming number of rogue internet drug outlets. The .pharmacy domain is an easy way to show consumers and search engines that a website is verified and safe!

Buying medicine online is as easy as looking for “.pharmacy” in a website address/URL. Unlike seals of approval posted on websites, the .pharmacy domain is part of a website’s address and cannot be faked.

Today, the vast majority of websites selling prescription drugs online are doing so illegally — many of them sell dangerous, unapproved, substandard, and counterfeit medicine. NABP has reviewed close to 11,500 internet drug outlets selling prescription medications and found 96% to be out of compliance with United States pharmacy laws and practice standards that protect the public health.

The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®), the impartial professional organization that supports the state boards of pharmacy in protecting public health, is spearheading the .pharmacy initiative. To ensure the program operates in a manner consistent with international laws and standards, a global coalition of pharmacy community stakeholders provides guidance to the .Pharmacy Verified Websites Program. In addition, the program:
Establishes partnerships with regulators in each jurisdiction where the .pharmacy domain names are available, and maintains the highest program standards through participation in global forums to gather input from international pharmacy community stakeholders.
