The Domain property specifies the domain or realm to which the user name belongs. Typically, this is the host computer name where the application runs or the user domain for the currently logged in user.

The following code example uses the Domain property to set the domain associated with the credentials.

' Create an empty instance of the NetworkCredential class. 
Dim myCredentials As New NetworkCredential("", "", "")
myCredentials.Domain = domain
myCredentials.UserName = username
myCredentials.Password = passwd

' Create a WebRequest with the specified URL.  
Dim myWebRequest As WebRequest = WebRequest.Create(url)
myWebRequest.Credentials = myCredentials
Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + ControlChars.Cr + "User Credentials:- Domain : {0} , UserName : {1} , Password : {2}", myCredentials.Domain, myCredentials.UserName, myCredentials.Password)

' Send the request and wait for a response.
Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + ControlChars.Cr + "Request to Url is sent.Waiting for response...Please wait ...")
Dim myWebResponse As WebResponse = myWebRequest.GetResponse()
' Process the response.
Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Response received sucessfully")
' Release the resources of the response object.
myWebResponse.Close()
