Thanks in advance for taking the time to read and reply if you can help. I am currently researching setting up an online gifting business focusing on the Irish market. I have found a URL that I think is suitable and available but 2 questions before I progress:
1) There is a company operating in the US under the .com domain with the same name. I checked and they seem to have a trademark for the US only. Is there any way to check if they have any other rights over the name in the Irish market?
2) I am started creating a website in WIX - really impressed with its ease of use and how it looks so far but from reading threads here I think Shopify might be more suitable for ecommerce sites. I would hope to be selling a range of products eventually but will start off with 5 - 10. If anyone can advise on either that would be appreciated.
Many thanks again
