The author's understanding of the term «domain name» is proposed in the article, the approaches existing in the scientific community to determining its legal nature through the prism of services, property, as well as means of individualization are considered. It is determined that a domain name can exist within the framework of such an object of civil rights as property, the right to which will be subject to appropriate legal protection. It is established that in cases where a trademark or geographical designation is placed in a domain name, only that part of it that consists of the corresponding object of exclusive rights will be protected. The article has a high scientific value, since it includes a consistent and detailed analysis of the properties of a domain name, which is a fundamental element in the active process of digitalization of society. A reasoned and unambiguous conclusion is formulated about the place of this category in the context of the existing classification of objects of civil rights.
