 5/16/17 - dotHealth Announces Partnership with LegitScript to Monitor all .health Domains

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) May 16, 2017

dotHealth LLC, the official registry of the .health domain extension, announced today that it will partner with internet pharmacy verification and monitoring firm LegitScript to monitor all registered .health domain names for health-related content that is unsafe, illegal, or puts internet users' health and safety at risk.

The partnership is part of dotHealth's objective to build a credible and secure home for health online.

"At LegitScript, our focus has always been to ensure that internet pharmacies, supplement websites, and other online health resources are safe and credible," says John Horton, CEO of LegitScript. "We are excited that dotHealth is leading the way to create a place where consumers can be empowered to make informed health decisions."

dotHealth's CEO, Jose Ignacio Rasco, is eager to improve the health industry by ushering in a modern era of seeking health information online. During eyeforpharma's North American conference in Philadelphia on April 21st, Rasco announced that LegitScript will monitor future .health domains. In conjunction with announcing the partnership, Rasco presented to leading pharmaceutical marketing executives about the enormous opportunity the pharmaceutical industry has to meet the growing needs of health information-seeking consumers online. "With today's proliferation of digital health content, .health will be the home for health online that the consumer can recognize and trust," says Rasco. "The partnership with LegitScript is an important element of ensuring that .health is a secure and credible domain extension."

In addition to the partnership with Legitscript, dotHealth is taking additional steps to ensure the .health domain landscape is backed by reliable technology and policies to provide dependable and focused content. Registrants who adopt .health domains will be subject to stringent terms and policies that ensure the integrity of the domain extension and deter misuse. These terms and policies are being developed with the assistance of an advisory board of health and technology experts. In addition to these policies, dotHealth recognizes the importance of security on health-related sites which is why .health domains are backed by industry-leading technology and security protocols administered by Neustar, the largest provider of core registry and digital naming services.
