    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?

    This is actually quite worrying. A registrar is going to strip you of your property based on some third party opinion? No court order? Nothing? Can you tell us more about what happened? I think quite few of us would like to make sure we are keeping our domains with a company that will not fuck us over.

    LegitScript is a verification and monitoring service for online pharmacies. It is the only such service recognised by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy as adhering to its standards aside from the NABP's own VIPPS program

    That is the reason, so I'm pretty sure they will trust what LS is saying more than some pharma CPA offers or products OP was trying to push through his website

    As Biju has said above I was promoting pharmacy related CPA offers. One day I just received an email from Namecheap stating that my domain was blocked and that I needed to contact LegitScript and get my domain removed from their "rogue" database in order to get the domain unblocked.

    I have emailed LegitScript asking what the deal was, why my domain was marked as rogue. To that they replied that I was selling medicine that needed prescriptions, medicine that was unapproved, bla bla bla.

    In order to get my domain removed from their rogue database they are asking me to send them a pharmacy license. To that I have replied and explained my situation and now I am waiting for them to get back to me.

    From what I read on Google, LegitScript is a verification and monitoring service for online pharmacies. Most domain registrars are very senstive about this type of thing...
