Check Availability of a Name

Is your company name already taken?

What you get with this 5-step starter guide:

You may have one or a few possible names in mind for your new company. But how do you know someone else isn't already using the name? What if you get a letter in a few months telling you you'll need to change your signage, letterhead, website and more?

This Starter Guide is designed to help you be sure the name you choose for your company isn't already in use by another company.

It'll walk you through real-time searches for available domain names, conflicting U.S. trademarks, Secretary of State databases, and even help with a broad Google search for problematic businesses with the same or similar name.
