Business Registrations: What is the process ?

This article provides you with the process steps of registering your company name through 1-grid.




1-grid takes the hassle out of dealing with CIPC, and does everything through one platform. Our automated system does a company name lookup with the CIPC database and then reserves it for you so you can match it with your website domain name. We will guide you through the process, step by step.





Step 1– Submit your application


Registrations can be accessed via our website here


Questions asked :

  • Choose 3 Company names (Domain name will automatically be populated by names provided)
