Q: How is Brandings different from a traditional company naming agency?
A: When “Fortune 500” companies launch a new product or develop a new business line they hire teams of naming consultants, corporate image developers and marketing professionals to get it right. These services are outrageously expensive – and usually worth every dollar. At Brandings we’ve undertaken research up-front and have developed thousands of unique, differentiated and available brands. We skip the fancy-presentations and big-budget meetings of "old school" naming and brand development firms and pass the savings on to you.
Q: How do I search for a company name?
A: Your search for the perfect name has never been easier. You can browse our wide selection of names by category or subcategory in the dropdown BROWSE BY CATEGORY menu on the left.

Q: What does the “TM” trademark symbol mean?
A: Each company name in the Brandings inventory bears the “TM” designation establishing Brandings claim to the discrete word, letter, number, design or combination of these elements. The “TM” symbol is global notice of commercial use and common-law claim of trademark rights. All rights held by Brandings will be transferred to you as part of the brand package. Marks have not been registered with the European Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs) or the United States Patent and Trademark Office. (Learn more about trademarks.)
Q: How are company names screened?
A: Each name is screened by Brandings for foundational “ownability.” Should your needs require more robust trademark screening, Brandings offers a range of advanced trademark screening services. You can conduct a basic search yourself by typing the company name into a search engine like Goggle, Yahoo or AltaVista. You can also take advantage of the free search functions available at the European Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs) at EOHIM Search and the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) database at USPTO Search. Brandings makes no representation as to the suitability of a brand name with application in a particular industry or market or for use in a category of good or service articulated in the International Classification of Goods & Services. You are strongly encouraged to seek counsel to determine suitability and all trademark registration related matters.
Q: How does the domain transfer process work?
A: After we receive your order, we’ll initiate the permanent transfer of the domain name to you. We make the domain transfer process quick and easy. We’ll walk you through the process of setting up an account with a domain registrar like GoDaddy.com, NetworkSolutions.com, 1and1.com, eNom.com, Joker.com, and Register.com.) Domain registrars charge an annual registration fee of about $10. (USD). We’ll then transfer the domain to your registrar where you’ll have full ownership, title and complete control over the domain.
Q: Should I consider a .net, .org, .into or country-code domain extension?
A: The dot.com TLD (top level domain) is far-and-away the global leader. In business today, a great name is of little use unless you have the corresponding dot.com domain. That's why each of our brand packages comes with a matching dot.com domain. As a defensive measure, you may want to consider the purchase of the .net, .org, .info or a country code extension -- and redirect traffic to your primary dot.com website.
Q: I’m not ready to develop my website, can I receive the current webpage?
A: Yes. To ensure continuity, this starter website can be transferred to you in its current configuration while you develop your own site. We have been building an on-line history for the domain name with a simple webpage designed to generate an initial traffic stream. There are no web hosting charges for this starter site.
Q: How will I receive the logo artwork?
A: You will receive logo artwork in the following formats: .gif, .pdf, .ai, .eps, .svg, .png & .jpeg. If you require a unique or special format, just let us know. We can prepare artwork in any file format you need.
Q: How does Brandings determine the price of a name?
A: After we’ve created, screened and tested a company name we work aggressively to obtain the dot.com domain. Quite simply, there are a finite number of premium dot.com domain names and virtually all of the best have been taken. We acquire the dot.com domain – often at considerable cost. In addition to acquisition costs we have developed a pricing algorithm that includes traffic, history, linguistic value, market potential, expandability, and other etymological factors. (Learn More)
Q: What forms of payment does Brandings accept?
A: We accept Visa, MasterCard, AmericanExpress, and Discover as well as payment by check, wire, PayPal and Escrow.com.
