What domain name is the following asking for? Is it the domain of the site I'm logging into?

Dynamic IP address access, limit by referer

If your IP address changes, or you have a very large amount of possible IPs you're connecting from, you can protect your WordPress site by only allowing login requests coming directly from your domain name. Simply replace example\.com with your own domain name

Thank you for your question kdhook46!

The domain you put in your <a href="">.htaccess</a> in the <a href="">Lock down WordPress admin login with .htaccess</a> article is your domain for your WordPress site.

Best regards,
