    Do you register your eCommerce, Blog, or droppshipping website as a sole proprietorship or LLC?

    I'm having trouble figuring out what to do with my eCommerce site idea.

    I wan't to create a lasting brand so im concerned with things such as naming rights, protecting my brand etc.

    What do you guys do?

    I'd start off getting some type of cashflow before going ALL in. I doubt there will be anyone stealing your brand name unless you got customers. In Sweden LLC costs like $8K, so I'd not do it before I've a proof of concept (I own 1 LLC though, but with a business I have proof of concept in).

    Nah
    Hekke is right, but for ecommerce you're going to need some form of business, at least a registered sole proprietorship. Would you order at a webshop with no legal & company information?

    I operate most my sites under 1 LLC. Some big projects require their own corp. You'll know when.

    Unless you're well established in the IM world, don't worry about any of that stuff until you're making money.
