Search business name availability
When you have come up with a few name ideas, it’s time to run some searches to find out which of the names you’ve come up with might be taken. Luckily, the Kentucky Secretary of State website makes this process easy by providing a simple FastTrack Business Organization Search, which allows you to look for the exact name you want to use, or parts of it.
When you run a search, it will need to be at least 4 characters long. It’s also a good idea to keep in mind that the results will max out at 250. As you look at the results, you’ll be able to see the names of companies that match or include your chosen search word(s). In addition, the results will let you know whether each business is active or inactive.
