IMHO it is already clear as it is, opposing a plain domain name to a
fully qualified domain name, but maybe you may prefer an explanatory
parenthesis as in:

\item You cannot use DEBIAN trademarks in a domain name (ie. a
second-level domain or equivalent), with or without commercial intent.

Yet, this definition may pose additional issue with deeply nested public
suffixes[0], so I'd suggest leaving it as in the original.
