If you have already decided on what to call your new business startup in Arizona then you are heading in the right direction. Before getting all cozy though, there are some things you should do in order to make sure that you can legally use the name and use it with freewill. The first thing one should do is to check the website by the Arizona Corporation Commission which is at www.azcommerce.com/start-up. From there you will be able to know if the business name you have chosen passed the requirements of the state and is available. There are other things one should consider when deciding in a business name, according to Anita Campbell.
- First and foremost, you have to check its availability on the World Wide Web. Check it out by visiting your domain registrar and look up the .com version of the business in URL format. If you opt to buy the domain name through a secondary market auction then there is a big possibility that you will be paying more than the fair price.
- Don’t settle for .com because there are other domain extensions to choose from depending on the type of business you are in. For a business that specializes in consulting then there is the .guru domain extension. If you prefer not one but several domain names then that is also possible just as long as it all leads back to your website.
- Business names are also affected by the current trend which could mean adding an extra letter or deducting a few to fit in the cool and cute business names category. Before doing this, make sure to consider if the name is easily remembered because of the change or it just makes it harder to spell.
- Unlike in the yellow pages where you have to name your business in a way to come out on top of the alphabetical list, the same thing does not happen in search engines. Consumers who are looking for products or services are more inclined to type in keywords that are associated with businesses thus the business name should also be related.
