Could you please explain the reason(s) for using domain accounts instead of
regular ones ?

    What Barry said, but in more detail. A domain account is valid on any
    machine on the network. A local account is valid only on a particular
    machine. If you give a local account access to a network resource the
    resource can only be accessed by that user from that machine. If you
    give a Domain user access to a resource he/she can access it from
    anywhere.

    In addition changes to Domain users and groups can be made from any
    Domain connected machine with the right software and the necessary
    rights. The changes only need to be made once.

    Lots of other reasons.

    Cheers,

    Cliff
