Here are a few pointers to help with picking your online business name:

Additionally, void names that are difficult to spell. You don’t want potential consumers to be perplexed about how to discover your company online. 

Preferably, the business name should express something important and beneficial about your company.

Select a name that is scalable

Choose a business name that will help your company grow. 

A name that is too specific may bring issues in the future. You don’t want to confine your business to a single product or city. 

So selecta name that will be scalable as your company expands.

 For example, if you just sell shoes, you may one day sell socks or other accessories as well. In addition, if your service is located in a certain area, you may expand to other cities.

So, consider picking a broad enough name that can accommodate your future expansion.

Make certain that you are personally pleased with the name.

Do a search at USPTO.gov to see whether you can register the name as a trademark or service mark. Here is a helpful resource for learning about intellectual property.

It’s not a bad idea to perform a trademark search. You don’t need to register or trademark it right now or really ever, but you want the name free and available for use.
