could be incorrect but domain is <whatever>.<tld> zone is the area in which you have control of how that domain is resolved and a child domain is <whatever>.<whatever>.<tld> hopefully someone else has a more specific/better answer especially if mine is wrong.

The celthunder's explanatin is right.

I'm not going copy-paste, so read the following on wikipedia:
