Windows NT Server domains are collections of computers and computer users that are managed by a central authority. Domains may span departments, divisions, and/or workgroups, as well as other types of computer groups. You implement domains to make groups of computers more manageable and to apply a security policy to specific areas of your network. In addition, domains logically split up large networks into groups of resources that make it easy for users to find those resources.
