Windows 7-difference between a domain, a workgroup, and home group

Windows 7-difference between a domain, a workgroup, and home group-Domains, workgroups, and home groups are the different methods for organizing computers in a particular networks. The main difference among them is how the computers and other resources on the networks are managed. Computers running Windows on a network must be part of a workgroup or a domain. Computers running Windows on home networks can also be part of a home group, but it's not necessarily required. Computers on home networks are usually part of a workgroup and possibly a home group, and computers on workplace networks are usually part of a domain.

Difference between a domain, a workgroup, and home group

What is a workgroup: 

1. All computers in the group are peers. 
2. No computer of the group has control over another computer in the group.
3. Each computer has a set of it’s own user accounts. 
4. To log on to any of the computer in the workgroup, you must have your own account on that computer. 
5. There are typically not more than twenty computers. 
6. A workgroup is not protected by a password. 
7. All computers must be on the same local area network(LAN) or subnet.

What is a home group:

1. Computers on a home network must belong to a workgroup. 
2. They can also belong to a home group. 
3. A home group makes it easy to share pictures, music, videos, documents, and printers with other people on a home network. 
4. The entire home group is protected with a password. 
5. You need to type the password only once, when adding your computer to the home group.

What is a domain:

1. One or more of the computers ia/are servers. 
2. Network administrators use servers to control the security and permissions for all computers on the domain. 
3. This makes it easy to make changes because the changes made by the Network administrators are automatically made to all computers. 
4. Domain users must provide a password or other credentials each time they access the domain.
5. If you have a user account on the domain, you can log on to any computer on the domain without having an account on that computer.
6. You probably can make limited or no changes to a computer's settings. 
7. Only network administrators can change settings because they want to ensure consistency among computers.
