domain name

Name that locates an organization or other entity on the Internet; for example, www.macromedia.com. The domain name consists of three parts: the host server name (www); the name describing the organization or entity (macromedia); and the type of domain (.com). Domains can be commercial (.com), non-profit (.org), Internet Service Providers (.net), four-year colleges or universities (.edu), U.S. government (.gov), U.S. military (.mil), or non-U.S. countries (e.g., .fr for France and .de for Germany).
