Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If your company is an LLC and you use your company name on the website, then you must put the LLC behind the name. Under LA law, the company name must contain either the words, "Limited Liability Company" or "LLC"

Thank you for your assistance.
One other question: Why is it a better idea to appoint someone else as the Registered Agent for my company?
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 6 months ago.
Thank you for your reply.
It is not really a better idea. It is a matter of convenience. Most small LLC want to get all notices directly to the owner. Some large LLC would have a registered agent who takes service and then sends it to the right person in the LLC to handle the matter. It is preference and not that one is better than another.
