To get a business name for your Issaquah, WA business, you need to register a trade name or “doing business as” name with the appropriate government authority. But, there is a another place where you need to register your business name and that is getting a domain name. A domain name is the word you enter into a web browser to go to your website on the Internet. For example, in, “ml2solutions” is the domain name for my business.

Unlike a business name which only needs to be unique in your state, a domain name is global. Anyone can register one though there can only be one. So, when you are thinking about a business name, it is important to see if you can register the same domain name to make it easier for your customers and to have a consistent brand.
