When you are thinking of a business name search, the first thing you need to do is to create a perfect name. So as to conduct a proper search for a business name, it will be advisable for you to think of having at least three business names so as to help you when your first choice is unavailable. Once you have with you some of the strongest business names, this is just but a sure point to get started with your search.
The next tip that is to follow this is as well easy and simple is to conduct a search for the name on Google. Did you that Google has an extensive list of reliable information on the new and already established businesses? This is just a step as simple as getting to merely type the business name you have in mind and the from there take a look at the results that will come from the search. If you happen to have no sign of any existence or use of the particular business name that you have in mind, having well checked and confirmed for any variations that may be there as for the name against some that may be similar such as spellings and like issues and they all tell nothing to question, the next step will be ready for you to take. If it happens that you have not yet found one at this stage yet, you need to continue with this until you have one that you can move on with the name search.
On to your found keeper name, now on the next phase of the search add a .com to the keeper. This is all but in an effort to own all the rights to the name you have just created. Your company will be so easily found when one searches for it by typing the name and adds a .com at the end of the name. This as such points to the fact that for you to own the name and the rights to it you need to as well own the domain. This done, you will then need to follow it up with the next step in the search.
What is to follow is to have a look at your local phone book and the online directories. There are so many companies that are being created on a daily basis and most of these are sole proprietorships which are known to be created without as much formal documentation. If you happen to come across such names in your name search you need not panic as these may never leave long in the business and or may never acquire legal existence and as such all you need to do in such a case is to note their existence.
