It’s quite cheaper to have printers within a domain. To procure this arrangement, you need to ensure the permissions from the laptop or computer users within the domain, prior to adding a domain shared printer in that domain.

Sharing printer to domain
Offering printing service to another domain means giving rights to print from your printer. Domain is a public sharing network, and not a private platform. Most of the users are from the same network, using the domain. Adding printer is not a big deal within a single domain. Some constraints may arise due to the variation in the no. of users, etc. Privacy is the first thing to look after.
How to add in Domain
Go to the desktop screen. Select the printers & Faxes section in the dialog box & add the printer in menu. Once added, it will appear in the list (menu). Options are outside, since no internal permissions are allowed with the taskbar. You need to logout & then again submit the new printer. Next step is to label the printer or printer attached computer. Change the default setting by selecting across the radio button in the list. Then connect to printer & and in the selecting option, go to next. Now add the printer name & navigate through the list and select the print on your choice from the domain.
Things to be taken care while adding
Select the desired printer from the list from the available options. Then accept the default section of printer & leave the settings as default there. Next move to another wizard & complete the addition procedure. While connecting devices to network, you must accept the domain terms & conditions in sharing properties. Domain is a LAN network, where it performs action like copying & sharing with other devices. While sharing printer & other devices, don’t keep personal information in the domain. Since it's like a public folder, sharing is quite easy.
