Unix account vs domain

Hello
My client told me that they will set up an account in unix for me. Plus they will also set up a domain for me so I can copy the code base directly from the domain created for me. I have worked in unix account. But I am not sure what is the difference in account and domain and why do they need to create a seperate domain for me. Thank you in advance:)

There are many, many different meanings for domain.

I suspect they may mean DNS domain.  Are you talking about web servers?

OK, so it is a DNS domain they are talking about.  Do you need to know anything else?

Can you please explain to me that if I already have an account in unix why DNS domain is needed. Thank you for quick responses:)

You will need to give a little more background in order for me to give an informed reply.

Are you shifting service providers?

Do you have a current domain, eg: somedomain.com that is expirying?

By providing you with the username, password, and domain, you can now log into the system remotely.
For instance, to log in to your unix account via ssh,

ssh yourusername@unixhostname.yourdomain
