Question
Hi Lee, I hope you can help me and give me advise on this matter. I recently started to buy and sell cell phones on the craigslist web site. I realized that I'm making a profit on each sale. I was wondering what name should I give my company? I am looking for a unique name. I will be selling all kind of cellphones from iPhones, Nokia, Samsung, LG etc.

I also want to register the name with a domain company so in the near the future if I decide to open an online shop to sell cellphones, the company name will the URL address. Any thoughts of what names I could use? Please advise.

Thank you.
Craig.

Answer
Ivan give you some pointers.

1) finding a domain is harder so if you are going to specialise in phones, go to just dropped.com and search using "phone" or what you want your company to be remembered by. Make a note of a few you like.
2)go to a reputable we sure that provides off the shelf companies and try and match the domain to available companies. Rinse and repeat until you find one you like.
