Domains are commonly used to divide global areas of a corporation or a corporation's departments. A domain may need to be specified when mapping a network computer or drive.

2. When referring to an Internet address or name a domain name is the name of the web page. For example, "computerhope.com" is our domain name. When creating a domain name, make sure to keep it simple and something that is easy to remember. Additional promoting tips for websites can be found on our promotion page.
