Once a new name (or several possible names) has been selected, it is critical to submit the name for a clearance search. Without performing a clearance search, it is impossible to know whether another company is already using the same name or a confusingly similar one in the marketplace. A clearance search will also determine whether the proposed name(s) are available for registration. During the clearance search, it is also wise to determine whether related domain names are available for registration or are already in use by competitors.
