    Thats NOT where you register a simple DBA in NC. Those are done on the local county level. The SOS (the site that is listed) is ONLY for filing your business as a corporation, such as a INC or LLC. To file as a DBA you do that at your local COUNTY REGISTER OF DEEDS OFFICE, and it is like a $10 fee. BUT you will still want to check the SOS site to make sure that the name is not already incorporated in NC because if it is then the person/company that filed it has "legal" rights state wide to the name and you cannot use it as a DBA or a Corp name.

    I should have made that clear. My intentions were to post that site for the purpose of checking the availability of the business name. My bad!
