A domain user account enables the service to take full advantage of the service security features of Windows and Microsoft Active Directory Domain Services. The service has whatever local and network access is granted to the account, or to any groups of which the account is a member. The service can support Kerberos mutual authentication. The following documentation is for developers. If you are an end-user looking for information about an error message involving domain user accounts, see the Microsoft community forums. For information about managing domain user accounts, see TechNet. The advantage of using a domain user account is that the service's actions are limited by the access rights and privileges associated with the account. Unlike a LocalSystem service, bugs in a user-account service cannot damage the system. If the service is compromised by a security attack, the damage is isolated to the operations that the system allows the user account to perform.

A Windows domain is a form of a computer network in which all user accounts , computers, printers and other security principals , are registered with a central database located on one or more clusters of central computers known as domain controllers. Authentication takes place on domain controllers. Each person who uses computers within a domain receives a unique user account that can then be assigned access to resources within the domain. Starting with Windows Server , Active Directory is the Windows component in charge of maintaining that central database. Users of a domain are able to use enhanced security for their VPN connection due to the support for a certification authority which is gained when a domain is added to a network, and as a result, smart cards and digital certificates can be used to confirm identities and protect stored information. In a Windows domain, the directory resides on computers that are configured as domain controllers. A domain controller is a Windows or Samba server that manages all security-related aspects between user and domain interactions, centralizing security and administration. A domain controller is generally suitable for networks with more than 10 PCs. A domain is a logical grouping of computers. The computers in a domain can share physical proximity on a small LAN or they can be located in different parts of the world.
