Is there any difference between the two following sentences:
The area below the chat window is called whiteboard.
The area below the chat window is whiteboard.
In this case you have to put 'the' in.
- is called( known as/referred to as) the whiteboard
- is the whiteboard
But not always;
The area between the trenches is known as no-mans land (or is no-mans land but not the no-mans land)
The area between the goals is the outfield. (but not outfield)
