Welcome Dianna,

 

You can name your business by adding your name or none at all.

 

The first thing I will say is do a trademark search in the US, if you have a name for your business, you can do it here http://1.usa.gov/1xxYuDO

 

And make sure you have it trademark before you are faced with the trouble of someone using your name. Even if you are not US based it’s best practice to do so.

 

If you don’t have a name and want some suggestions, you can do a search here to see if it’s available you can use the suggestion from this site here bit.ly/1ZcfP7T

 

 

With all this being said you will still want to make sure that your domain name is also available do a search here if you may bit.ly/22pPEZm

 

Best wishes

Better to use your name to get started until you figure out what your niche will be and what direction is best for you. Many VA's start out doing Administration but end up being internet marketing or social media specialists so administrative services in a name would require to re-brand and that is the last thing you want to do. I recommend starting off with your name and many end up staying that way especially if you are the brand.

Hi everyone,

 

I have been gone for a while now, but back. STILL haven't gotten my site up as I got started but never finished. Anyways, I had to renew my hosting and domain name which is www.verifiableva.com

 

My question is that I don't want that as my name I want my first and last name so I can get a simple web site set up and then go from there.

 

I use Bluehost. Do I just create a subdomain because I just renewed my hosting and domain for $90.00. I think I would have to pay like $11.99 for the year. When I want someone to go to my website, I want them to use my name web site and not the verifiableva one.

 

Thanks so much and hope you all are doing well.

 

Debbie
