Default set the cookie file name

Is there a way to set the cookie filename with JS?

Currently it is setting it as 'asp/'

This is my code:

Code:
function setCookie(NameOfCookie, value, expiredays)
{
// Three variables are used to set the new cookie.
// The name of the cookie, the value to be stored,
// and finally the number of days until the cookie expires.
// The first lines in the function convert
// the number of days to a valid date.

var ExpireDate = new Date ();
ExpireDate.setTime(ExpireDate.getTime() + (expiredays * 24 * 3600 * 1000));

// The next line stores the cookie, simply by assigning
// the values to the "document.cookie" object.
// Note the date is converted to Greenwich Mean time using
// the "toGMTstring()" function.

document.cookie = NameOfCookie + "=" + escape(value) +
((expiredays == null) ? "" : "; expires=" + ExpireDate.toGMTString());
}
and this is how i call it:

Code:
setCookie('OpenJaw', 'true', '1');

I set this cookie in a folder Inetpub/www/picco/asp
and within a file called net1.asp
Code:
function setOWCookie(NameOfCookie, value, expiredays)
{
    var url = location.href; // the current URL of the page (e.g. airbook.asp)
    var airbook = url.indexOf("air_book");
    var netfare3 = url.indexOf("net_fare3");

    // Three variables are used to set the new cookie.
    // The name of the cookie, the value to be stored,
    // and finally the number of days until the cookie expires.
    // The first lines in the function convert
    // the number of days to a valid date.
    var ExpireDate = new Date ();
    ExpireDate.setTime(ExpireDate.getTime() + (expiredays * 24 * 3600 * 1000));

    // The next line stores the cookie, simply by assigning
    // the values to the "document.cookie" object.
    // Note the date is converted to Greenwich Mean time using
    // the "toGMTstring()" function.    
    document.cookie = NameOfCookie + "=" + escape(value) +
    ((expiredays == null) ? "" : "; expires=" + ExpireDate.toGMTString()) + "domain=localhost";
    // If the current page is the airbook
    if(airbook!=-1)
    {
        var returning = document.getElementById("returning");
        returning.style.visibility="hidden";
        var returning_zelle = document.getElementById("returning_zelle");
        returning_zelle.style.visibility="hidden";
        var OpnJw = document.getElementById("OpnJw");
        OpnJw.style.display="none";                
    }
}
However, i want to access it in Inetpub/www/picco/asp/includes
and within a file called net1_include.asp

But this code below doesn't work, when trying to delete the cookie.
Code:
/*
FUNCTION NAME: delCookie
Deletes the cookie name that is passed to the function,
can be used for OJ and OW cookies
*/
function delCookie(NameOfCookie)
{
    // The function simply checks to see if the cookie is set.
    // If so, the expiration date is set to Jan. 1st 1970.
    if (retrieveCookie(NameOfCookie,"DEL"))
    {
        document.cookie = NameOfCookie + "=; expires=Thu, 01-Jan-70 00:00:01 GMT";
    }
}
Any help appreciated.
