As you think of conducting a business name search, what you will first of all need is to have created a perfect name. For the search to be done properly, you will need to have at least three names to select from in case your first alternative does not make it through. At the very point in time that you have a few business names that are strong names enough, you will be well set for you to start up your business name 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 simply going to require you to type the business name in the search bar and then see what results that will be there from the search. When your name seems to be clear as from the search engine searches, having checked and affirmed all the variations such as can be with the spelling of the name, et cetera, you will be good to move to the next step in the search. If you however happen not to have found one yet, ensure that you search until you have found one that you can keep.
On to your found keeper name, now on the next phase of the search add a .com to the keeper. The reason for this is all but for the sake of ensuring that you assume full rights to the name that you are just creating. 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. Thus the rule of thumb in all this is to ensure that you own the name and the rights by owning 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 a number of the companies being formed nearly every day and most of which are sole proprietorships which in actual sense do not require much in formal documentation to create. 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.
