Translation help please! 男生

I recently picked up 男生.com

I've been told three meanings of it from 3 different people.

男生
boys/boy
male student
and gentleman

Can anyone confirm one of these for me?
Thanks!

This name is quite good actually.

男生 is the short form of 男学生 (boy students) used mostly as plural. As a habit, Chinese tend to make a 3-char word into 2-char if it's possible. 男生 is first used in schools for boys, then it becomes so popular and is also frequently used outside of school to mean boys.
