Confusion in knowing the actual meaning of domain

I'm confused in the actual meaning of domain. Is the domain mean any web page address like "superuser.com" or its actual meaning is the name of network which provides internet connection.

The domain is not just ANY webpage in the URL sense, but specifically the top level root naming/identification of the webpage that human beings can relate to - it really serves as an identification (or a brand almost) for any of the pages that live under it (as perceived by the visitor of the webpage). There's a whole registration system for domains, and each domain is unique.
