NAME
       domainname - set or display name of current domain
       nisdomainname - set or display name of current NIS(YP) domain
       ypdomainname - set or display name of current NIS(YP) domain

SYNOPSIS
       domainname [ domain ]
       nisdomainname [ domain ]
       ypdomainname [ domain ]

DESCRIPTION
       Without  an  argument, domainname displays the name of the current NIS
       domainname of the system.  domainname uses the getdomainname(2)
       function for getting the domainname, nisdomainname and ypdomainname are
       using yp_get_default_domain(3).

       Only the super-user can set the name of the domain by specifying the
       new domain as an argument. All three programs uses setdomainname(2) for
       this. Bear in mind, that already running programs may continue to use
       the old domainname.
