The problem is that 'domain name' is ambiguous, is it the name after the
first dot in the fqdn? not necessarily, for example: prep.ai.mit.edu,
the domain name is probably mit.edu and not ai.mit.edu

So this is not currently implemented, however I could be convinced given
a good definition of 'domain name'.
