/ kəmˈpjuːtər ˈneɪm /
In computer networking, a name that uniquely identifies a computer to the network. A computer’s name cannot be the same as any other computer or domain name on the network. It differs from a user name in that the computer name is used to identify a particular computer and all its shared resources to the rest of the system so that they can be accessed. Compare alias (definition 2), user name.
