I have an online service soon to be launched where I will be charging money from my future users to access it, so I have to come up with some TOS for them to agree on during sign up. I know all about the contents, I only have a problem with the beginning.

The problem is, I don't have a legit registered business yet, I'm doing everything in my own name. I want to register the business once I earn some money because the fees are pretty high where I live. So can I use the domain name as agreement party? Looking at my competitors, the agreement party is something like The Company Inc. Something like this:

These terms of service (“Terms”) are a legal agreement (“Agreement”) between you, either an individual or a single legal entity (“You” or “you”), and The Company Inc, which operates The Service Name available at www.theservicename.com.

So can I use just the domain name? Something like:

These terms of service (“Terms”) are a legal agreement (“Agreement”) between you, either an individual or a single legal entity (“You” or “you”), and The Service Name (www.theservicename.com)

Or should I just enter my own name here? (The service is legit, I actually use my real name on the website), but I'm worried about binding my name to a legal contract). Although probably that would be no different, because even if I had registered a sole propertiorship, I would be personally responsible for any legal cases.

What do you think about it?
