1. Name your company
When naming your business, you have to think about these things.
Your business entity name is how you and the state will identify your business. Some states may have rules limiting how you can choose your entity name, including the usage of company suffixes. Most states will not allow you to register a name that’s already registered by another company. Additionally, some require that the entity name reflects the business you have in some way.
When it comes to a trademark, you’ll want to look at the state and federal levels. At the state level, you can verify whether your name or logo is trademarked by visiting their online business portal. At the federal level, you should check your prospective business name in the A official trademark database. Although more costly and time-consuming to obtain, A federal trademarks offer far more protection than a state trademark. Since state trademarks only protect your trademark in the registered state, you would lose nationwide protection. A federal trademark is especially beneficial to corporations that expect to do business outside of their home state.
Registering your business with a DBA name doesn’t provide any legal protection by itself. DBA names are known as trade names, fictitious names, or assumed names. They can be registered with the state, county, or city in which your city is located.
A domain name is the web address that visitors will use to access your website, and someone like ZenBusiness can help you register your domain name. Perform a quick search to make sure the name is available, and then reserve it before someone else takes it.
We are honnor to be your Agent!
The government requires an official address to send correspondence to an appointed registered agent. A registered agent acts as the middle man between your corporation and the state. Depending on your state, you can appoint yourself or even your business as a registered agent. Registered agents are necessary to ensure that businesses can be notified in the event of a lawsuit. The physical address must be located in the state and open during business hours so that the corporation can be reached.
