Why has registrant’s domain name been suspended?

If a domain name is suspended, it is, in most cases, because the registrant’s NABP Accreditation has expired. Registrants must reapply annually to maintain their NABP Accreditation and, thus, their eligibility to maintain and use a .pharmacy domain name. NABP notifies registrants 120, 90, 60, and 30 days prior to the expiration of their accreditation, reminding them to apply for reaccreditation. After that time, the domain name will be suspended and placed on “serverHold, transferProhibited, and serverRenewProhibited” status.
