    As the title says, my domain has been locked by Namecheap because they have received reports about my domain from LegitScript. Therefore my site has been taken offline and I am unable to transfer the domain to another company or even to setup a redirect for the domain.

    Has anyone ever experienced this? Any advice on what I should do, how to overcome this issue?

    Talk to support see if they can do anything. If you were doing naughty stuff to break their ToS, don't waste your time. Other than that I would suggest immediately looking for another domain registrar. Get whois privacy and put it on Cloudflare.

    Pretty sure all the major US based registrars are going to take action against the fake prescription drug niche.

    I contacted Namecheap support and they redirected me to LegitScript so I emailed them. I had both whois protection and I was using cloudflare so such features won't protect you.

    This happened to you before? Do you know which registrars don't do these stupid blocks? You can PM me if you don't want to post publicly.

    I had the same issue last week. Did you solve yours and how can I do it if I don't want to post publicly?

    Your domain is blocked because of LegitScript report or some other reason?
