namespace

A naming system that uses unique names to identify an object. For example, a network requires a different name for each workstation, server and printer. The Internet uses a hierarchical namespace that partitions names into top-level domains, such as .com, and .org, and includes the millions of domain names (ibm.com, microsoft.com, etc.) in these categories. See Internet domain name, global namespace and XML namespace.
