Registered name searching?

I did a search on this site for previous posts about company name searching... didn't find much. Anyone know if there is a website that lists all preregistered company names for certain states???

You generally would check with the county clerk where you live. They may have a website. Names are generally registered by county unless they are incorporated the that is state wide and trade marks are good nationally.

Easy for you since you are in NC. You can check the NC Sec of State's website for Registered Names and Corps. If it is not Registered with the SOS Then to check for DBA's you only need to be concerned with the County in which you will do business and can check with that Counties Reg of Deeds.

Little confused.... I think I found the right website.... performed a search... found nothing.... not even close to Carolina Cuts. Yet, I tried an online "Yellow Pages" website... and one came up. Actually Two.. but the second one was a hair salon in South Carolina.

Perhaps they didn't register that name then? It's possible for a company to use a name, but not have it registered, or know it was supposed to be registered. If you want to use it, try to register it with the state. If no one has it, it's yours.
