A more elaborate explanation of this subject can be found here, on Lord of the Rings Wiki.

Arda or Earth is the planet on which the Lord of the Rings took place, including the sun, moon and other objects orbiting it. Middle-Earth is its continent most well known in popular culture. The planet Arda has originally been created by Eru Ilúvatar through the Music of the Ainur to be a home for the "Children of Ilúvatar", Elves and Men, but is now inhabited by many other species as well.
