DotHealth, LLC Passes ICANN’s Initial Evaluation for the .HEALTH New Top Level Domain

Ridgewood, NJ (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

Reaching a critical milestone in the generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) approval process, the DotHealth, LLC (“DotHealth”) application to operate the .HEALTH new top level domain registry has passed the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) initial evaluation. DotHealth plans to enable a safer online namespace for global health and which also enhances the discoverability of quality online health-related information.

“Passing ICANN’s initial evaluation is an important milestone for our Company and those who share our vision for a safer and more trustworthy online namespace for health,” says Andy Weissberg, DotHealth’s Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “This accomplishment further reinforces the merits of the policies and safeguards we have planned for .HEALTH, which have been uniquely tailored and orchestrated to address the safety and security concerns of public health in the status quo.”

DotHealth, LLC is the only applicant for the .HEALTH TLD which has earned the support of some of the world’s most trusted and respected public health and Life Sciences industry organizations including the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), the Inter-American College of Physicians and Surgeons, the World Federation of Chiropractic and others. The Company is backed by Straat Investments and Neustar, Inc., the world’s leading provider of telecommunications and back-end TLD registry infrastructure services and a founding member of The Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies (CSIP), a non-profit organization chartered in 2011 to address the growing problem Internet sales of illegitimate pharmaceutical products.

Furthering its commitments to the safety and security of users of the .HEALTH TLD, DotHealth has also exclusively partnered with LegitScript, LLC, a leading provider of online surveillance and investigative services for the world’s leading search engines and e-commerce companies. LegitScript will help DotHealth to monitor and enforce its Acceptable Use Policies which were developed in connection with LegitScript’s International Internet Pharmacy Standards and which expressly prohibit the use of .HEALTH domains for the illicit sales and marketing of harmful or dangerous substances. Additionally, DotHealth, LLC is the only applicant for that re-affirmed to ICANN its public interest commitments toward the protection of the names and acronyms of the World Health Organization (WHO) in the .HEALTH TLD.

“The forthcoming expansion of the domain name system will inevitably change the landscape of online health, creating new opportunities to connect people, systems and information,” adds Mr. Weissberg, a 19-year veteran of the digital health, publishing and information services industries. “Passing ICANN’s initial evaluation brings us one step closer to raising the bar for safety and trust in online health.”
