English translation:response domain
Explanation:
I've put this as a 3 simply because I don't know exactly what a response domain is. However,

"The Domain and Path attributes define the scope of the cookie. They essentially tell the browser what website the cookie belongs to... Below is an example of some Set-Cookie HTTP response headers that are sent from a website after a user logged in."

Reference: RFCs for cookies

Reference information:
For reference, here are the RFCs defining HTML cookie formats (RFCs are "Requests for Comments", but really they function as official definitions of concepts and formats in the world of Web standards). In chronological order:

http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2109
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2965
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265

The most recent one (RFC 6265) is probably most relevant, e.g. because it seems to include a field for "Expiration date" (as in your example French text) alongside the "Maximum age" mentioned in the others.

Since none of these RFCs mentions the term "response domain", and since the discussion of the cookie's "domain" field seems to fit with your interpretation, I suspect that Phil Goddard was probably right to conclude that your "domaine de réponse" does correspond with the Domain field described in these RFCs.

Brief Googling also reveals that "domaine de réponse" does not appear on any Canadian sites (.ca), and that a global search for this text returns a large number of almost identical texts from sites that are presumably in France. Personally, I might not put too much weight on the particular phrasing of "domaine de réponse", since what seems to have happened is that one person chose to phrase it that way once in a template, and then it was copied again and again to other sites.
