I'm planning to start few different websites and smartphone apps. I want to be able to accept payments for each. I don't want the overhead of creating different companies for each one but I want don't want customers to be confused by seeing that they are paying My Cool Parent Company LLC when they are on areallycoolwebsite.com. Is the best idea then to create one parent llc and have multiple dba's under the parent llc? And to start off, would it be cheaper to just create a dba at first until we start making money? I'd eventually want an llc because I like the liability protection.
Other possibly helpful information is I currently live in Maine and will be a one man shop, at least for a while.
Thanks for your time.
