If you just need to register a business and have no tax or liability concerns you can be very simple and have a Sole Proprietorship.
If something which happens in your business causes potential liability, you probably want at least an LLC taxed as an S Corp.
If you have a need to issue company stock, you need a C Corp.
Disclaimer: I'm not a CPA, and you might need one (or at least a bookkeeper). What I do is help people with their eventual non-working future.

I specialize in financial education and collaboration and I'm a reformed broker who can help you make it happen without the high cost.
And I give customers the same professional tools that are usually limited to the yacht-owner crowd.
Happy to help more if you'd like to know more - I made my company so that everyone could have quality advice, not just those who already have a pile of money.
