This domain alongside its corresponding website was registered on the 11th, April 2018. It was last updated on the 25th of February, 2021, with its expiration date set to the 11th of April, 2023.
The scan of this domain showed just a little personal information of the registrant, with the largest chunk supposedly redacted for privacy. The only hint of the owner’s personal information is the country of origin – Bayern, Germany.
In addition to the aforementioned information, additional investigations were launched on the online pharmacy website. The connection to the website is apparently secured. The verifying or certifying agency is Let’s Encrypt/R3, with the certificate valid from 24th of February to 25th of May, 2022. Furthermore, malware and antivirus checks, in addition to SSL/TLS scans, were run on the website, showing little threat, albeit not guaranteeing the safety of the website.
The additional business profile to the pharmacy website is Medication CA. Information on the business owner or employee information is not available or visible on this pharmacy e-store. The absence of a business profile in addition to little information about the owner in the domain profile doesn’t bode well for this company.
Two of the leading website and online pharmacy regulatory bodies are LegitScript and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). LegitScript charges itself with the responsibility of making the internet scam-free through its website rating, which helps users make informed decisions. In the same light, NABP also gives the same confidence to consumers, by verifying and certifying online pharmacy which meets its set of requirements. This online pharmacy, alongside its website, isn’t recognized or certified by either of these bodies, evident in its absence in both databases.
Products and Pricing
This online drugstore specializes in a particular pharmacy product – sexual enhancements or restoration. The offered products are under these two categories:

❋ Women’s Health
The prices of their products are deemed as the cheapest in the market, much lower than local, physical stores’.
Payment and Shipping
The accepted payment options by this online drugstore are credit cards. The accepted credit cards are primarily Visa, MasterCard, American Express. In addition to those, other accepted credit cards include Carte Bleue, JCB, Discover Network.
The available shipping option is determined by the customer’s or user’s location. They include:
❋ Express Mail Service (EMS)
❋ Deutsche Post, Royal Mail
❋ Correos, Posteitaliane
❋ United Parcel Service (UPS)
However, customers with no access to any of these services have the option of using Trackable Courier Service.
It takes 24-72 hours for completed orders to be processed. Then, they are ready to be shipped using the selected or available option. Delivery details and prices differ on the selected option and location of the customer. There is also an additional incentive of free shipping for orders over $200.
A website with product and service reviews goes a long way in improving users’ confidence. Unfortunately, there are no customers’ reviews of products or services offered by this online pharmacy store. The option isn’t available on the pharmacy’s website. The absence of such a review on this online store website is going to reduce the confidence of users in their product and offered services.
The major criteria that determine if a company is either a front for scam or legit, is the recognition and certification of its offered products and website. The absence or inadequacies of either of these certifications reduces customers’ confidence, and subsequently, its rating. There could be a number of reasons for the obliviousness of this website, but it tilts more towards it being a scam website, just yet to be discovered. Another red flag includes the absence of the owner’s personal or contact information on both the domain and website.
We conclude that this online drugstore deserves a trust level of 20%.
