Is domain name registration in the .pharmacy TLD restricted?

Yes, .pharmacy is an open but restricted Top-Level Domain (TLD). To register a .pharmacy domain name, customers must first demonstrate compliance with NABP’s Healthcare Merchant Accreditation Program Standards and Requirements, as defined in the program’s Terms and Conditions. They can do so by:  

  1. confirming that they meet the program’s Eligibility Requirements and Standards;
  2. submitting an application for NABP’s Healthcare Merchant Accreditation (“NABP Accreditation”); and
  3. receiving approval from NABP.

This ensures that customers can trust websites with a .pharmacy domain name.
