an address within the internet computer network, which may be a single computer, a network of computers, or one of a number of accounts on a multiuser computer. The domain specifies the location (host computer) to which communications on the internet are directed. Each domain has a corresponding 32-bit number usually represented by four numbers separated by periods, as 128.32.282.56. Each domain may also have an alphabetical name, usually composed of a name plus an extension separated by a period, as worldsoul.org; the alphabetical name is referred to as a domain name.

A domain is the unique name that identifies an Internet site. Domains always have two or more parts, separated by dots, as in www.yourdomain.com. Domains are bound to name servers, which direct to which IP address the domain should point. Any server or Web site can have multiple domain names, however, a domain name can only point to one server. See also: Domain Name Server, Domain Registration, IP Number
One of the elements that comprise a DNS address. Domain names are divided into different categories: .com, .net, .org, .edu, .fr, .uk, etc.
the lowest level in the classification hierarchy (Data Taxonomy); a collection of data elements, one or more, with common characteristics. For example, "text" related data elements would be in one domain, "weights" in another, "percentages" in another, "monetary values" in another, etc. The domain also defines the standard physical characteristics and values the data may assume. (Also see Taxonomy)
A Domain can be defined as the homepage of a site. URLs belonging to a Domain are all the pages belonging to this site. Their values begin with the Domain's value. For example, the URL " http://www.xyz.com/sites/search/web?q= sex&pg=q&avkw=tgz&kl=XX" belongs to the domain " http://www.xyz.com/".
Companies or organisations register and host a domain name to allow users to locate and identify their website and send email. An example would be integritynet.com.au. This will allow us to have www.integritynet.com.au as a web address and !-- // var first = 'ma'; var second = 'il'; var third = 'to:'; var address = 'info'; var domain = 'integritynet'; var ext = 'com.au'; document.write('a href="'+first+second+third+address); document.write('@'+domain+'.'+ext+'"'); document.write(address); document.write('@'+domain+'.'+ext+'/a'); // -- for email.

A domain is another name for an internet address. Domains follow a hierarchy where top-level domains (which usually end with .com, .edu, .gov, .org, .ca, etc.) have web sites or lower-level domains below them that are sub-divided into different usable areas. In general, websites which have their own domain name like http://www.domain.com, will often achieve better ranking position than a sub-directory website such as http:/www.domain.com/uniquenames/.
part of the Internet address (URL). The domain is indicated by the final two or three letters in the server's Internet address. A domain indicates the kind of organization that is hosting the resource.

They represent various countries (.uk, .de) or subject areas (.org, .gov, .info). Second to last are the second level domains with terms that are easy to remember (such as company names). The first part of the domain name contains the names of computers and subnets. Domain names must be at least 3 characters long (with a maximum of 128) and may not contain any special characters or punctuation marks, except for underscores and hyphens. Recently, umlauts (ü,ö,ä) became permissible.
The home turf of any web site. The domain of the SCUDD web site is the Nottingham Trent Universitys server, as denoted in the root (art.ntu.ac.uk) of its URL: http://art.ntu.ac.uk/scudd/ Commercially, web domains can be chosen and registered to be easily remembered, such as http://www.sainsburys.co.uk

Think of your domain as a piece of real estate you rent in the infinite cyberspace. A domain name is the address of your property. The beauty of cyberspace is you can name your own address (as long as no one has registered it before you).
Highest subdivision of the Internet, for the most part by country (except in the U.S., where it's by type of organization, such as educational, commercial, and government). Usually the last part of a host name; for example, the domain part of ibm.com is .com, which represents the domain of commercial sites in the U.S.
A name given to a computer that is mapped to its numeric IP address. There can be several domain levels, each one separated from the next by a period. The highest domain level is to the right.

A 'human readable' name that identifies one or more IP addresses. Domain names are used in URLs to identify particular Webpages.
a unique home of a website or server; e.g., in the email address "!-- document.write('a href="mailto:' + 'contact' + '@' + 'bahai-library.com' + '"' + 'contact' + '@' + 'bahai-library.com' + '/a'); --" the second part, "bahai-library.com," is the domain. If you were to register a domain, your domain would look like "yourname.com"

internet address of the organisation hosting a webpage or email server
The name of a computer or a group of computers on the Internet. For example, the host name www.freedonia.com is made up of the domains www, freedonia, and com, with freedonia being a subdomain of com, and www being a subdomain of both freedonia and com (and also a host name). Domains are organized in an inverted tree structure called the domain name space.
To access information from the Internet, you need to know its physical address. This is where the domain name system comes in. Essentially, it is a computerised system of names and computer addresses which enables Internet users to locate a web site or send or receive an email. Therefore it is a vital, integral part of the Internet infrastructure. Today the New Zealand Internet Registry Ltd., trading under the name 'DOMAINZ' administers the .nz space. Any individual or business can register a domain on a first come first serve basis. If you do not have your own domain name then you are part of the Maxnet domain. The root of the domain is "maxnet", after which is ".co" which indicates that Maxnet is a commercial company rather than a government (.govt) or academic (.ac, or .edu) or a non-profit organisation (.org), and at the end is '.nz' which shows that this domain is registered in New Zealand. A domain can be registered anywhere in the world.
the part of the URL that identifies the sponsoring organization (for instance cnn or espn) and the type of sponsor (.com for commercial or .edu for educational)
The domain identifies a machine as a part of some related group of machines. For example, machines in the "res.wpi.net" domain are residence hall machines. The domain, when used with the short name for a machine, forms the fully-qualified hostname for that machine. Most machines should simply be registered in "wpi.edu".

the unique name that identifies an Internet site. Domain Names always have 2 or more parts, separated by dots. The part on the left is the most specific, and the part on the right is the most general. A given machine may have more than one Domain Name but a given Domain Name points to only one machine. For example, the domain names: joebloggs.co.uk mail.bloggs.co.uk workshop.bloggs.co.uk can all refer to the same machine, but each domain name can refer to no more than one machine.
Sub-division of the Internet which is usually identified by country and or entity i.e. co.uk or gov.uk

Naming space assigned to a website on the Internet. Domains are hierarchically organized: top level domains have .com, .net, .org type of extension. Google.com is an example of top level domain. Subdomains can be created as well: support.google.com is an example. Domain branching can go further down: asia.support.google.com or japan.asia.support.google.com etc. While top level domains must be registered with an international Registrar, a domain owner can create any number of sub-domains at their discretion. top of the page
'Domain' (or domain name) is a heavily overused term in the Internet. It can be used in the Administrative Domain (qv) context, or the Domain Name System (qv) context. In the latter context, an owner's domain name is that part of all available URLs (qv) after 'http://www' (or just 'http://' for big operators apparently) and that part after '@' in any e-mail addresses (qv).

A domain is a web site with its own unique domain name.
An element of the naming hierarchy on the Internet.
The Internet is set up hierarchically, and the domain is the last part of the address which descibes the type of general category, for example: .COM - commercial, .EDU - educational institution usually in the U.S., .GOV - U.S.Government, .NET - Internet Operations, .ORG - non-profit organization. Also there are many 2 letter country code designations (.UK for United Kingdom, .CA for Canada, etc.)
The domain is the name for an organization on the internet. The domain is usually made up of two parts - the name and the type - toast.net, ibm.com, redcross.org, mit.edu, etc... In country hierarchies, the domain can have more parts - each country sets its own rules.
A domain name locates an organization or other entity on the Internet. For example, the domain name www.analogx.com locates an Internet address for "analogx.com" at Internet point 18.104.22.168 and a particular host server named "www". The "com" part of the domain name reflects the purpose of the organization or entity (in this example, "commercial") and is called the top-level domain (TLD) name. The "analogx" part of the domain name defines the organization or entity and together with the top-level is called the second-level domain name. The second-level domain name maps to and can be thought of as the "readable" version of the Internet address.
Usually the last part of the URL + .com, .net, .org etc. ie. Yahoo.com is a domain.
A part of the address hierarchy a machine is placed in; e.g.. berk.com.au here 'berk' is in the com.au domain.
An internet address owned by a company, organisation or individual, such as jonstorm.com, nasa.gov or bbc.co.uk. See also TLD, How web addresses work.

Internet address or URL of a website. Example : In the URL - http://www.morepro.com, morepro.com is the domain.
A subset of the total domain name space. A domain represents a level of the hierarchy in the Domain Name Space, and is represented by a domain name. For example, the domain name NIC.AG represents the second level domain NIC which is a subset, or sub-domain, of the top-level domain AG, which is in turn a larger subset of the total Domain Name Space. If you think of the Domain Name Space as a tree, a domain would be analogous to a limb and would encompass all of the branches off of that limb.
The name of a Web site, such as duke.edu. Domain names have extensions, such as .com or.edu. The intention in this design was that the extension would clarify what type of site it was. For example, .com was intended for commercial sites, but this is not always adhered to. Other extensions include .org, .gov, .mil, and .net. Several new extensions have recently been approved and will be put into use in late 2001. Duke's domain - duke.edu

Some newer top-level domains are actually standard two-digit international country designations, such as .uk for United Kingdom, .fr for France, etc.
All computers on the Internet have a unique number called an IP address. These IP addresses are fine for computers, but they are neither intuitive nor easy to remember. Domain names are an easy way to identify one or more IP addresses and are used in URLs to identify particular web pages e.g. telkomsa.net.
Domain names are hostnames that provide more easily memorable names to stand in for numeric IP addresses. They allow for any service to move to a different location in the topology of the Internet (or another internet), which would then have a different IP address.

Each domain has its own security policies and security relationships with other domains and represents a single security boundary of a Windows 2000 computer network. Active Directory is made up of one or more domains, each of which can span more than one physical location. For DNS, a domain is any tree or subtree within the DNS namespace. Although the names for DNS domains often correspond to Active Directory domains, DNS domains should not be confused with Windows 2000 and Active Directory networking domain.
An Internet address or a subsection of the Internet.
A "logical" region of the Internet. People sometimes refer to them loosely as "sites." Generally, a domain corresponds to an IP address or an area on a host.
or Domain Name: What you call your site. "BootsnAll.com" is our domain. Domains and domain names are reserved and renewed annually. You can get as many as you want, but usually you just need one.
stands for: Distributed Operating Multi-Access Interactive Network. In a LAN, a sub network comprised of a group of clients and servers under the control of one security database. Dividing LANs into domains improves performance and security. In a communications network, all resources under the control of a single computer system.
A hierarchical way of relating computers on the internet. A domain often has a geographical element, e.g. uk, then an organisational element such as ac for academic or co for commercial. Thus example.ac.uk is in the academic domain of the uk domain. Computers in the US do not have a geographical element in their domain name, which ends with the organisational element such as edu (academic), gov (government), com (commercial) etc.
An organization on the Internet and all of its networked computers, or the internet name of that organization. Common examples of "domains" are:.gov governmental domain.mil military domain .net network domain .edu educational institution.com commercial
A logical group of networked computers. A good example is a college campus that shares a centralized directory/database and offers security for the entire group (domain).
The name of a company, organization or person's Internet connection, which then becomes part of their Web address. For instance, in firstname.lastname@example.org, "abc" is the domain name.
A domain name is used rather than an IP address to locate a website. Think of it as a personalised number plate or phone number. A domain name is hardlocked to point at a server's IP address.
the unique name of a site. Ex. www.getouttoday.com is the domain name for Get Out Today. These names must be registered.
Part of the DNS name that specifies details about the host, such as its location and nature of entity (.com – commercial, .gov.uk – government).
Your address on the web. For example, onlinebusinessbasics.com is a domain name.
Domains are "regions" on the Internet, sometimes referred to as "sites." A Domain usually corresponds to an IP Address or an area on a Host.
Domain is a subset of Internet addresses. Typical top level domains are .com, .edu, .gov, .org (divide into areas of use). There are also various geographic top level domains for particular countries (.us, .uk, .ca, .de, etc.). Keyword rich domain names should be used if possible, and not too many level deep sub folders, as they could achieve better positioning on search engines than web sites.
Just as a PC's file extensions (such as .doc for MS Word files) give some indication of what kind of file it is, the last part of an Internet site's domain name tells what kind of site it is. The most rapidly expanding of these is ".com," as in www.microsoft.com. (That stands for commercial, not comedy.) Other common ones include .edu, for educational institutions, .gov for government, and .mil, for military sites. For sites based outside the U.S., there are plenty others. You can guess the origin of .uk, for instance. It gets more confusing once you start dealing with other countries' sub-domains, such as the UK's ".ac" for academic.[See Also: DNS, InterNIC, Virtual domain
A group of computers that are part of a network and share a common directory database.
An Internet address. The domain for OptusNet is optusnet.com.au .
The address of a website. Domains are hierarchical, with lower-levels referring to sub-sections of the base website. They are available with a variety of extensions, the most popular of which are .com, .edu, .gov, and .org. There are also various geographic (e.g. .ca, .ar, .fr, .ro) referring to particular countries.
Also known as a Domain Name. This is the top-level site name. This is the name everyone associates with your Web site. For instance, AltaVista's domain name is altavista.com, one of Microsoft's domains is microsoft.com, and eye 4 image's domain is eye4image.com.
For Advanced Server, a collection of computers defined by the administrator of an Advanced Server network that share a common directory database and security policy. A domain provides access to the centralized user accounts and group accounts maintained by the domain administrator. Each domain has a unique name. See also workgroup.
A logical grouping for file servers within a network, managed as an integrated whole.
A group of systems managed as a single entity using a name service such as NIS or NIS+.
"Domain" is a heavily overused term in the Internet. It can be used in the Administrative Domain context, or the Domain Name context. See also: Administrative Domain, Domain Name System. [Source: RFC1392
A part of the Internet address naming hierarchy such as .com .
On the Internet, a part of a naming hierarchy. Syntactically, an Internet domain name, or address, consists of a sequence of names (labels) separated by periods (dots), e.g. "library.pepperdine.edu", the domain name for the Pepperdine Libraries and Information Network.
An Internet classification category used to identify computers in a certain network. For example, Keene State College is part of the "edu" (educational) domain. Its domain name is "keene.edu". Other categories of domains include .com (commercial), .gov (governmental), .org (organization), .net (network), or country endings such as .ca (Canada) or .au (Australia.)
An Internet address. The domain for CMATHER is CMATHER.COM .
That part of your Internet address that indicates your computers location which comprises as series of names separated by full stops.
technical name for sites address (www.webit21.com) also known as URL (Uniform Resource Locator)
In LAN Manager or Windows NT Advanced Server, a group of devices, servers, and workstations grouped together to simplify network administration and security. Each domain has a unique name. Being logged on in one domain does not limit access to resources in other domains to which you have access. See also logon domain, other domains, primary domain controller, workstation domain.
A domain is a network concept that allows independently functioning networks to share resources such as transmission media. A domain designation provides an ID number to identify the devices that can communicate within that domain. A network must have at least one domain. PowerCommand Network installations will usually have only one specified domain.
1. n. That part of a computer network in which the data processing resources are under common control. 2. n. In Open Systems Interconnection (OSI), a part of a distributed system or a set of managed objects to which a common policy applies. 3. n. In a database, all the possible values of an attribute or a data element.
A logical grouping of computers and/or networks. In NT networking terminology it is a logical grouping of a network. More complex and object oriented than the hierarchical structure used by DOS, Banyan, etc.
The unique name used to identify an Internet network.
On the Internet, a domain consists of a set of network addresses. This domain identifies a unique place and is, in fact, equivalent to a unique address on the Internet. In the Internet's domain name system, a domain is a name with which name server records are associated that describe sub-domains or hosts. For example, "whatis.com" could be a domain with records for "www.whatis.com" and "www1.whatis.com," and so forth.
Refers to a group of computers whose hostnames share a common suffix, the domain name. Some important domains are .com (commercial), .edu (educational, mostly U.S.), .net (network operations), .gov (U.S. government) and .mil (U.S. military). Most countries also have a domain, for example, .us (United States), .uk (United Kingdom) and .au (Australia). See also DNS.
For Windows NT Server, a networked set of workstations and servers that share a Security Accounts Manager (SAM) database and that can be administered as a group. A user with an account in a particular network domain can log onto and access his or her account from any system in the domain. See also SAM database.
An area on host or an IP address.
A group of nodes on a network that form an administrative entity. It could also be a number of servers grouped together and named to simplify network administration and security. Every computer on the LAN belongs to at least one domain. Being logged in on one domain, however, does not limit resources in other domains to which the user has access permissions.
Domain name is the unique name that identifies an Internet site. Domain Names always have 2 or more parts, separated by dots. The part on the left is the most specific, and the part on the right is the most general. edu : educational institution (Hunter College: hunter.cuny.edu) com : commercial business (CNN: cnn.com) org : non profit organization (United Nations: un.org) net : for companies or organizations that run large networks (Teachers Net: teachers.net) gov : government (US Dept. of Edu.: ed.gov) mil: military agencies (US Navy: navy.mil) There are also two letter international country codes (Geographical Domain names) as part of domain names. (In the U.S. counrty codes are not used in Higher education) -- (Ex: us, ca, uk, de, tr, at, jp, il, etc.)
is the address, or URL of a website. When a user types a URL into a web browser, a dedicated computer, known as a Domain Name Server, or DNS translates the URL into a discrete IP address which is then used to find the actual website being requested.
A collection of computers that share a common security context
A group of computers and devices on a network that are administered as a unit and have common rules and procedures. The domain is the unique address for an organization (i.e. jcu.edu.au).
Part of an Internet naming hierarchy. An Internet domain name consists of a sequence of names (labels) separated by periods; for example "dsl.com".
Hierarchical scheme for indicating logical and sometimes geographical venue of a web-page from the network. In the US, common domains are .edu (education), .gov (government agency), .net (network related), .com (commercial), .org (nonprofit and research organizations). Outside the US, domains indicate country: ca (Canada), uk (United Kingdom), au (Australia), jp (Japan), fr (France), etc. Neither of these lists is exhaustive.
The Internet is divided into named domains, based around a hierarchy. Every organisation has a domain, and every computer in the organisation is given a unique name. Virgin.net is an example of a domain name.
A physical or logical area that shares some common characteristic. See address domain and protection domain.
A domain is an organizational unit on a network. Computers are grouped together into domains, the domains are given names, and the rest of the network can communicate with the domain as a unit instead of having to maintain connections with each individual computer. Traffic within the domain is directed by Domain Name Servers.
An area on the internet assigned to a particular company. Each area is assigned its own numeric IP address and a text name. If one server has more than one, they are considered "virtual" domains.
A domain is the part of the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) that locates an organization or entity on the Internet; for example, www.watchfire.com.
A sub network made up of a group of clients and servers under the control of one security database.
The name given to a site for ease of identification: this is the part of a web address between the 'www' and the suffix (.com, .co.uk etc).
The trailing portion of a fully qualified host address, typically in an e-mail context. See fully qualified domain name (FQDN). A level in a NetInfo hierarchy. See NetInfo. An organization of machines (clients, master servers, and slave servers) and maps in NIS. See Network Information Service (NIS). A section of the Internet name space. See Domain Name Service (DNS).
A domain name is an easy-to-remember address that can be translated by DNS into server's IP address. Popular domain's extensions include .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, name, .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, .eu and more. Domain names are unique and are registered within a central database.
The name for a company, organization, or individual's Internet connection. Individual computers within this domain all end with the domain as a part of their host name.
defines a region of jurisdiction for name assignment and of responsibility for name-to-address translation; any computer within the host; in the Internet, a part of the naming hierarchy
A collection of facts about a programs entities or a number of network points or addresses, identified by name. A domain consists of a set of network addresses on the internet. A domain is a name with which name server records are associated that describe sub-domains or host. In Windows NT and Windows 2000, a domain is a set of network resources for a group of users. The used would log into the domain to gain access to the resources. The resources may be located on a number of different servers in the network.
The hierarchical naming structure that allows a network to have a presence in a way easier to remember than a bunch of numbers. For example: School.vic.edu.au is a domain name. An Internet domain has absolutely nothing to do with a Windows NT domain.
A computer, a local network, or an entire site, distinguished by a fully-qualified domain name.
A group of computers that share a database and have a common security policy; the basic unit of Windows NT Server LAN. This term can also be used to refer to an Internet domain name.
A group of computers and devices on a single network that share administration as a unit with common procedures and protocols. On the internet, domains are defined by their unique IP Address. All devices sharing a common part of the IP Address are considered part of the same domain.
(1)A limited region or field marked by some specific property. (2)The name in an Internet address following the host name, as "SVSU".
An Internet domain refers to a networked computer accessible through a host, or domain, name. A domain identity includes a distinguishing suffix such as .com (commercial), .edu (educational, primarily in the U.S.), .net (network operations), .gov (U.S. government). Most countries also have a domain. For example, .uk (United Kingdom), .au (Australia).
The last part of an Internet address, such as "news.com."
In the Internet, a portion of a name hierarchy tree.
the part of the DNS (Domain Naming System) name that specifies details about the host. A domain is the last 3 letters after the final dot, and it tells you what kind of organization is hosting the website. There are six top level domains commonly used in the U.S. They are: .com (commercial); .edu (education); .net (network operations); .gov (U.S. Government); .mil (U.S. Military); and .org (organization). There are other two-letter domains which represent countries, such as: .uk (United Kingdom), and so on.
The last element of an internet address (URL) that indicates the sponsor of a webpage, e.g. edu, org, gov.
The hierarchially structured global character string address of a host computer in the mail system.
A portion of the naming hierarchy tree in the internet that refers to general groupings of networks based on organization-type or geography.
A computer's full name is a bunch of short 'words' separated by dots, such as 'darla.sunnydale.unimelb.edu.au'. The domain is the part of that name that comes after a dot. In this case, the domain would be 'sunnydale.unimelb.edu.au'. ('sunnydale.unimelb.edu.au' itself is in the domain 'unimelb.edu.au', 'unimelb.edu.au' is in the domain 'edu.au', and 'edu.au' is in the domain 'au'. The concept of domains is useful as it allows two computers from different domains to have the same host name. (e.g., 'www.unimelb.edu.au' and 'www.sunnydale.unimelb.edu.au').
Just as a PC's file extension such as .doc (for MS Word files) give some indication of what kind of file it is, the last part of an Internet site's domain name indicates what kind of site it is. There are currently three generally used Top Level Domains .com, .net and .org with a fourth, .info, likely to be added later this year. Individual countries carry their own descriptions and their own sub-domains such as .co.uk (commercial enterprises) and .ac.uk (academic institutions) in the UK.
the last part of an e-mail address describing the kind of user at the address.
A collection of computers that share a common database and security policy/network perimeter.
All or part of an Internet name, address or element that identifies a computer and the organization that transmits or receives electronic data.

The groping of servers and clients in the Microsoft client/server networking environment containing a centralized Security Accounts Management (SAM).
A sequence of names (labels) separated by periods (dots), e.g., "wowarea.com".
A domain is the main subdivision of Internet addresses, in the US the last three letters after the final dot, (ie, com for commercial business, gov for Government agencies, edu for Educational institutions, org for non-profit organizations) and two-letter domains representing countries (uk for United Kingdom, th for Thailand).
A registered address for a Web site or an email address. For example, the Media Awareness Network's domain is "media-awareness.ca." Our Web site is www.media-awareness.ca, and our email address ends with "@media-awareness.ca."
Part of the naming hierarchy used on the Internet and syntactically represented by a series of names separated by dots. Take, for example, the domain name CATJO.BONZO.BOBO.COM. Read right-to-left, the address provides the path to a company (COM) named BOBO, to a company network named BONZO, and finally to the destination computer named CATJO.
A Domain is the part of your e-mail address following the @ sign. For most First Step customers, this is the city name that appears in your email address (so Moscow users would be moscow.com; Lewiston would be lewiston.com). For some customers the domain is the name of their web site.
a defined Internet location or set of addressable computers, usually indicated in the last parts of an Internet address; for example the ucdavis.edu part of the hierarchical designation like email@example.com, with the .edu signifying a US educational domain; company domains are designated with .com (as in timewaste.com), organizations with .org (as in dogooders.org).
Part of the unique addressing system (e.g. redpen.co.uk). Domains may be registered by companies or individuals.
domain is the first part of the URL, such as kentucky.gov, that identifies an entity on the web.
A segment of Internet space, denoted by the function or type of information it includes; current domains include ".com" for commercial sites, ".gov" for governmental ones, and ".org" for non-commercial organizations.
This is a higher level section of the Internet, usually given its own DNS. The domain is the section of an address before the directory slashes start. www.htmlgoodies.com is my domain.

Definition: The highest subdivision of a region name in a network address, which identifies the type of entity owning the address (for example, .com for commercial users or .edu for educational institutions) or the geographical location of the address (for example, .fr for France or .sg for Singapore).
Part of an Internet address. The network hierarchy consists of domains and subdomains. At the top are a number of major categories (e.g., com, edu, gov); next are domains within these categories (e.g., ohio-state); and then there are subdomains. The computer name is at the lowest level of the hierarchy.
Name A special name you choose to represent your web site online. Visitors type in your domain name to reach your home page. Domain names begin with www and end with .com, .net, etc. Limitations of Domain Names Choosing a Good Domain Name Choosing a Registrar See how a domain name differs from a URL.
A domain is a division of the Internet. Each domain is owned by a particular organisation, although some organisations own many different domains. Technically, each domain is defined by a specific IP address, which is very often translated from a numerical designation to a verbal one (e.g., "206.65.104.xxx" is also known as "www.asap.net"). For practical purposes, companies use unique domain names to make their websites easier to remember. The last three letters in a domain name are used to designate what type of organisation will be using a given domain (e.g. ".com" refers to a commercial interest ".gov" is the domain type for government organisations). A domain name remains the property of the owning entity until they stop paying the annual fee for its use or sell it to another organisation for a ridiculously inflated price...aah, capitalism.
When referring to the Internet, a domain is a two, three, or four letter geographical or descriptive scheme to help associate and organize a network web page. For example, the main Esplin Group web site is on a commercial domain, so our official domain is 'theesplingroup.com'.
the amount of space set aside on any Internet provider listed in their directory under your business or organization name. Return
A group of computers whose hostnames share a common suffix, the "domain name". The last component of this is the top-level domain.
one segment of the address structure of an Internet address, the domain name consists of a sequence of words separated by dots/periods. It is often the name of an organization, business, school, etc., that people use as this part of their e-mail address. Using the Internet e-mail address "firstname.lastname@example.org" as an example, "columbusrealestate.com" is the domain name.
Website address, another term commonly used for a URL. This is also referred to as the Internet address name for a company, organization, or individual.
Part of the DNS (domain naming system) name that specific details about the host. A domain is the main subdivision of Internet addresses, the last three letters after the final dot, and it tells you what kind of organization you are dealing with. There aresix top level domains widely used in the U.S. : .com (commercial), .edu (education), .et (network operations), .gov ( U.S. government), .mil ( U.S. military), .org (organization). Other, two-letter domains represent countries, thus, .uk for the United Kingdom , and so on.
The DNS name that specifies details about the host - its location and entity( .co.uk, .com, .gov, .edu )
There are Top Level Domains (such as .com, .net, or .org), and then there are midlevel domains such as Ford (ford.com ford.net or ford.org). Domain is a generic term to describe any of these levels and is most often used to refer to the mid level domain (ford.com). In reference to search engine technology, domain names can play an important part in determining a sites rankings on the search engines.
A unique identifier for a group of network resources, often representing a specific organization — for example, packeteer.com.
A server or collection of servers and all nodes attached to it logically. Each domain requires its own server.
The most general portion of a domain name, upon with the naming hierarchy of computers on the Internet is based. Common domains for sites within the U.S. include com (commercial), edu (educational), gov (government), mil (military), net (network) and org (non-profit organization). Other countries each have at least one unique domain for their own sites. See also domain name, IP number.
in an internet address, the part of the naming convention that consists of a sequence of characters separated by dots. The five most common types of domains are: ".com" for company or commercial entity, ".org" for non-profit organization, ".gov" for government agency, ".net" for a network, and ".edu" for educational institution. An internet site's full domain name would be "sitename.com" or "sitename.org" for example. Two sites with such similar names are registered as two separate sites and may or may not be operated by the same company.
The domain is the root of a host name for example, .com, .gov, .org, etc.
Similar to a street address, servers on the Web have addresses to allow other computers to locate them electronically.
redelegation is the process of moving the authority for a domain name to a new computer that is configured as a DNS server. These services are provided by IPP's.
The portion of a URL which maps to a specific organization, company, or other entity. e.g. dmoz.org is the domain for the URL Business/faq.html Related terms: Top-level Domain, Subdomain, URL, DNS

A domain consists of a set of network addresses. This domain is organized in levels. The top level identifies geographic or purpose commonality (for example, the nation that the domain covers or a category such as "commercial"). The second level identifies a unique place within the top level domain and is, in fact, equivalent to a unique address on the Internet (an IP address). Lower levels of domain may also be used.
part of the Internet address structure for your computer. The address customers use to find you in the Internet. For example, www.tecc.com.au.
This is the name of a network or computer that is linked to the Internet. It is found after the "@" in a URL, or Web address. There are different types of domains, for example, ".com" stands for company, ".gov" is government, ".org" is organization, and ".edu" stands for education.
A specific static (nonmoveable) website address dedicated for your use on the world wide web -- not be be confused with a homepage on your Internet Service Provider. A homepage is simply a space provided by your ISP. A domain site has its own location on the web. Domain sites can be very large and still have simple web addresses: Example: www.ABCDEFG.com.
A sphere of activity related to need. A broadly defined environment that can be viewed from a commercial perspective in terms of unmet, unserved and latent customer needs. Where needs create challenges for customers that can be characterized in terms of their broad proportions, urgency, general value and, conversely, can be viewed as posing a variety of requirements for their fulfillment. New and promising domains are defined by newly emerging, enabling factors. Note: domains are often collections of related needs that can be addressed by a variety of different platforms. (see platform)
is the "address" or URL of a particular Web site. This is also how you describe the name that is at the right of the @ sign in an Internet address.
Within the Internet, domains are defined by the IP address. All devices sharing a common part of the IP address are said to be in the same domain. The type of institution which hosts a web site

The name of a network or computer linked to the Internet. It is found in an email address after an @ sign. The email address for the First Lady, for example, is email@example.com, “whitehouse.gov” being its domain. A domain ends with an abbreviation indicating its type (e.g., “.com” stands for company, “.gov” for government, “.org” for organization, and “.edu” for educational institution).
On TCP/IP networks, such as the Internet, a domain is a group of connected computers. Domains are denoted in Internet addresses by a three-letter code such as .com or .org. A domain name such as socarates.nd.edu, indicates that the Socrates network is found at the University of Notre Dame (.nd), which is an educational institution (.edu).
This is a unique name that is assigned to assigned to a specific machine. No two domains can be the same. Domains usually consist of a specific name followed by an extension explaining what zone the site is in. For example, "95net.com" is a business domain ( com stands for commercial ), whereas "OCBAR.org" typically represents non-profit organizations.
The general category that a computer on the Internet belongs to. The most common high-level domains are: .com:a commercial organization.edu:an educational establishment.gov:a branch of the US government.int:an international organization.mil:a branch of the US military.net:a network.org:a non-profit organization.
The human-friendly "address, or URL" of a website.

Denotes the provenance of a web page. In the USA, common domains are: .edu (education), .gov (government agency), .net (network-related), .com (commercial), .org (non-profit and research organizations). Outside the US, domains are referred to by the name of the country: .ca (Canada), .nl (the Netherlands), .be (Belgium), .uk (United Kingdom), .jp (Japan), etc. This method is not always applied consistently.
The name of an administrative entity (a domain) formatted as a series of words connected by periods between them. For example, STERLING.COM is a domain.

The name for a web site, like www.spiderseo.net.
A name by which a computer connected to the Internet is identified. A typical domain name looks like this: www.ibm.com. The "www." refers to the fact that this computer is connected to the World Wide Web; the middle portion of a domain name is usually the name of the company that owns the computer—in this case,IMB ; the final portion of a domain name tells you what kind of site is served by this machine—in this case, ‘.com’ means this is a commercial site (other types of sites are: .edu—education, .org—non-profit organization, .net—Internet service provider).
The part of a URL that identifies the computer. In http://www.ibm.com/help/page.html, www.ibm.com is the domain.

A domain is a domain name that has name server (NS) records associated with it. In other words, there may be subdomains or hosts under it. ie. com, nw.com
A top-level domain name is either an ISO country code or one of the generic domains (com/org/net/etc). It should be noted that there is not necessarily any correlation between a country code and where a host is actually located.
In simple terms, a domain is identification for an entity on a network. For example, hawkpci.net is a domain.
The overall name of a particular web site, in the form . The name will usually be descriptive of the site in some way. For example, the domain name of this site is "sheldonbrown.com." The suffix indicates what type of site it is: .com (commercial), .edu (educational), .mil(military), .org (organization), .net (network). Domains outside of the U.S. commonly end with a suffix which specifcies which country they are from: .au (Australia), .ca (Canada), .de (Germany), .fr (France), .jp (Japan) .uk (United Kingdom)... The domain name is an essential part of a URL.
