Domain Name Information
The domain address information about this store tells us that the name was registered in 2003 with more than a year left to run before it needs to be renewed. A website which has been around for such a long time would suggest that this is more likely to be a safe and legit business.
A less positive detail from the record shows us that they are using a privacy service based in Barbados to keep their real contact information out of the public database.
This site has been around since 2003 and the design of the store looks like it is stuck in a time warp, not having been greatly updated since then. This old looking store is likely to put off a lot of people and perhaps this is why they haven’t invested in a more modern set up. Maybe they don’t get enough customers to justify the expense of rejuvenating their pharmacy store.
Business Contact Details
A couple of addresses are found on the contact page of the store. The mailing address is for a location in Toronto, Canada. When we check this address, it turns out to be a UPS store. This means they are using a mailbox service to redirect any mail to an unknown location.
The other address is for a business which is called UDS Health Ltd. which is based in the West Indies. This business name has care of (c/o) company name next to it.
The care of business name is Nevis International Trust Company Ltd. which is based in the Nevis, West Indies. It is an offshore companies formation business which organizations use for various reasons.
Reasons, why you might want to operate an offshore based business, include financial privacy, tax reduction, asset protection and avoiding domestic laws, among others. Whatever the reason here, what it does mean is that we don’t know who operates this business or from what location.

This online drugstore has been operating since 2003 but despite this, we have been unable to find any FederalDrugs.com reviews from previous customers. This is a concern as customer feedback is a great way to learn how capable a pharmacy is at what they do. This lack of testimonials may suggest that not many people use this pharmacy which could put you off giving them a try.
This store has been operating with some success for a very long time so we can assume that they operate in a safe manner. Additionally, they are very firm on their requirement to receive prescriptions before they will dispense drugs and this is good.
There are some issues which prevent us from recommending them though. Lack of feedback and regulation means we award this store 3-stars out of 5.
