Am I supposed to replace the {{SITENAME}} with the domain name?

No, that is worse than {{SITENAME}}. Read https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Localisation#Avoid_.7B.7BSITENAME.7D.7D_in_messages

If questions remain, ask them. Maybe the above section is too terse.

The alternative is making translators write each of the thousands of messages. This situation is acceptable, IMO.

This is nonsense, not an alternative. Please read https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Localisation#Avoid_.7B.7BSITENAME.7D.7D_in_messages
There is no need for more than one message and there is no necessity for {{SITENAME}} here.

Please tell, if https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Localisation#Avoid_.7B.7BSITENAME.7D.7D_in_messages is not clear enough and needs better wording.

It's entirely "clear". It's just not something we agree with.
