Yes, there have been marketing based name changes. Here are the ‘cliff’ notes:
domain -> sandbox
stack -> sandbox (OK yes, mixed metaphors)
stack is a collection of:
- sandbox (previously known as a domain server)
- various assignment clients
- audio mixer
- message mixer
- avatar mixer
- ATP server
- Domain scripts
- Other stuff
All of the above is installed together nowadays for the Windows and mac builds. Long ago they were separate things (it’s better done as a unit). As for Linux, well, lots of sharp edges - work in progress.
ATP is Asset Transfer Protocol. There is a server in each domain that lets you host your domain’s contents locally. The only place I could find anything on it documented is here: Asset Transfer Protocol Mappings. But, like I mentioned earlier, if you have a domain with a filled out scene (lots of stuff), you can easily swamp your home network’s bandwidth. This is why you do better hosting your assets (stuff) in a commercial hosting facility like AWS. It’s still a bit clumsy. You have to do your own system of placing stuff manually there. There is no integrated inventory or asset management in HF. We’re all expected to do that on our own (it builds courage).
Also, I agree with @Twa_Hinkle that for anyone other than crazed geeks with deep Geek-Fu knowledge, the easiest thing to do nowadays is just to install the entire package onto your local computer. If you have a spare computer, it makes for a fine ‘server’. Here is where I keep my ‘conference’ domain. Yes, it is an older Dell laptop with a network attached disk. I usually run it with the lid closed, works great. I’ve had 7 avatars in that domain with no problems. Do not expect to see many people visiting because the user base is quite small presently. The biggest crowd to date is around 18 people and that is at meetups.
