Choose a Company name that is short and memorable, which describes what you do and/or where you do it:
Your name must be unique online:
Check if another company uses your Preferred Company Name online or on social media.
Go to www.google.co.za and enter your new Company name in the search bar and press the blue search button (far right-hand side):
Your website domain should be available:
At your website domain bar (in your internet browser) type in www.“the name you want for your company with no spaces in between”.co.za or .com.
Press ‘enter’ on your keyboard:
Note: Some companies buy popular domains to resell them. So oftentimes some domains aren’t available but they aren’t online either. You can contact Company Partners toll free on 0800 007 269 for help with your domain name.
Identify your new Company’s Industry:
If your new Company will offer products and/or services in a specific industry, its best for your Company Name to end with the word that best describes this Industry.
Use descriptive words like: ‘Logistics’, ‘Transport’, ‘Catering’, ‘Security’, ‘Consulting’, etc.
If your new Company will offer a variety of products and/or services, it is best to NOT restrict your business.
Use non-descriptive words like: ‘Trading and Services’, ‘Enterprises’. ‘Trading Services’, ‘General Trading’, ‘Projects’, ‘Suppliers’, ‘Services’, ‘General Dealers’, ‘Trading and Suppliers’, etc.
