Starting a Small Business/Name for a cell phone shop?


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.

Ivan give you some pointers.

1) finding a domain is harder so if you are going to specialise in phones, go to just 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.
