Like traditional ‘store front’ businesses, when starting an online business the entrepreneur needs to be aware of what licensing requirements his or her new business may be subject to, both on the state and federal level.
Depending on the type of online business being started, state and federal law may have certain detailed licensing requirements before an online business or online website can go live.
This being said, it is usually more common for state licenses to be necessary than licenses issued on the federal level. Unless the business will be engaging in business related to certain dangerous activities, such as drug manufacturing, alcohol sales or the sale of firearms, it is more likely that the business may be subject to state licensing requirements.
