Name
       domainname  -  display  or  set the name of the current domain for this
       system

Syntax
       domainname [nameofdomain]

Description
       The command, when used without an argument, displays the	 name  of  the
       current	domain.	  The  startup	script must be used to set the current
       domain name before any other YP commands can be issued.

       A domain is a logical grouping of  networked-connected  systems	estab‐
       lished  for the purpose of sharing a common set of data files.  Domains
       are only used by the yellow  pages  (YP)	 service  and  are  called  YP
       domains.	  A YP domain is a directory in established through the use of
       the command, where a YP server holds all of the YP maps.	 Each  YP  map
       contains	 a  set	 of keys and associated key values.  For example, in a
       map called the host names stored there constitute the keys.  The corre‐
       sponding	 internet addresses of each host constitute the associated key
       values.
