Naming Your Company

Unread post by PattyFratto »

This might be a premature question, since I haven't received my course materials yet. However, I've been looking over some of the posts here that refer to assignments where you create a web site, etc. Are we supposed to use what we "plan" to use as a name? If I understand correctly, you need register/license your company name when you open your own business -- is that step part of this course? Or are we just to create a site using a made up name/our own personal name?

I was actually wondering the same thing! I've picked a name, but is it too early to register it? I found an available domain name I like, too!

In the course the part that you create your own website, well it is a real website where real customers can find you using the search engine on QC's website. So if your name is already chosen, and the domain available, I strongly suggest you register them, especially your domain! Domains go away fast, and if you register/reserve your company's name with your government, and then a few weeks/months after you go to get the domain but is no longer available, well your in trouble, cause it can get confusing for your customers...If I refer to the course books, here is what they say: When thinking of the name you'd like to use for your business, don't forget to check if a matching or similar Internet domain name (URL) is available. Having a website address that differs from your business name can be confusing for users, so try to register a domain name as you register your business. For example, Holland Decor Services would probably use http://www.hollanddecorservices.com

Hope it helps you! :D
