The next and very simple step that you will need to take in the business name search is to conduct the search on Google. Did you that Google has an extensive list of reliable information on the new and already established businesses? In this all you will need to do is type the business name in the search bar and have a look at the results. 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. Should it anyway happen that you have not found a name that you can keep, make sure that you continue searching yet till you have one name that you can proceed on with to the next phase of the name search.
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. The search for your company will be more precise when the name is typed and followed by the .com at the end of the name. Therefore what we can have as the general rule in all this is to ensure that you get to own the name as fully and the rights by even owning the domain name. With this already done, you will then have to follow this with the next step that is to follow in the search process for the business name.
What is to follow is to have a look at your local phone book and the online directories. There are so many companies that are being created on a daily basis and most of these are sole proprietorships which are known to be created without as much formal documentation. 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.
