When I incorporate , will it prevent others from using my company's name ?

Answer:

Incorporating will not keep another business from using your name. Filing articles of incorporation only prevents the secretary of state from filing a document to create another corporation, limited liability company or limited partnership that has the same, a deceptively similar, or similar name as the entity already in existence. Generally, every business must protect its own business name and the good will that it has acquired from the sale of its goods or services in a specific geographic area.
