Closet doors, particularly those for the closet section which houses a rail with hangers, often have a sort of a cylindrical bar attached to the inside of the door. A thin bar at a short distance from the door, but covering most of its width, on which you hang belts or ties.

My motivation is, as you might have guessed, having a closet which is missing this device and wanting to get one. Hopefully I won't have to settle for something like in the picture.

I was wondering whether this fixture has a name - a single noun or a phrase - that is commonly used.

(This is actually not such a great example, because what you're seeing here is an IKEA Grundtal bar intended for the kitchen.)

    It could be a number of things. For search terms try Tie rack, Belt rack, Closet organizing bar, Towel bar, belt organizing bar. You could make one out of pipe or a wood dowel. There are no rules for your closet, come up with something that works best for you. – Alaska Man Jan 1 at 23:31

There are no rules for your closet, come up with something that works best for you. It could be as simple as a piece of wood with some hooks screwed into it. (have the home center cut the wood to length, not tools needed except to screw it to the wall/closet door)
