pharmacies.

In June, a report by security firm KnujOn accused eNom of helping groups that sell counterfeit pharmaceuticals in violation of US laws.

While GoDaddy, the world's biggest seller of domain names, and other registrars have locked out thousands of rogue pharmacies, eNom has demanded difficult to obtain court orders before taking action, the report said.

But now, according to the Financial Times, eNom has teamed up with LegitScript, a company that vets internet pharmaceutical concerns to make sure they are licensed to do business in the US.

The move comes after increasing pressure on eNom by US authorities and internet governance group Icann.

LegitScript will enable eNom to identify applicants who are operating online pharmacies in violation of US state or federal law.
