Establish your own company

You must register a domain name and a company name. You should also consider if you need to protect trademarks or other rights. It is important that you check that the name is available for registration, and to register in the correct order.

1. Get yourself a domain name

It may take some effort to find a good domain name which is available. When you have found one or more, you should register them before someone gets ahead of you.

2. Register your company

You register your company in The Central Coordinating Register for Legal Entities (Enhetsregisteret) at the Brønnøysund Register Centre.

3. Check how to protect your idea

You register your trademarks, patents and designs at the Norwegian Industrial Property Office (Patentstyret).
