Most likely '2nd web server'.
Anything before the main domain name is either a sub domain or a host name. Internet addresses are made up of
Top Level Domains are things like .uk, .us, .com, .net, etc.
Domain is the main domain part, like in www.webmaster-talk.com
it would be 'webmaster-talk'.
Subdomains are optional, but you can logically split a main domain into one or more subdomains. For example www.shop.mydomain.com
The first part is the host name, it identifies a single host within a domain name, so you might have a mail server, a web server and an FTP server all under the domain inoxia.co.uk - they could be called mail.inoxia.co.uk, www.inoxia.co.uk
respectively. Say we added another web server to our domain, we could call it ww2.inoxia.co.uk or even myotherwebserver.inoxia.co.uk - it's completely up to the owner of the domain.
