In volleyball, if any part of the ball touches any part of the playing court, including the line, the ball is in. It has to be completely outside of the line for it to be called out. Of course, that’s a very simple explanation, but putting it into practice can be difficult in real-time.
USA Volleyball rules on this matter simply state: "The ball is 'in' when it touches the floor of the playing court including the boundary lines....[The ball is out when] no part of the ball contacts either a boundary line or the area within the boundary lines."

Volleyball, game played by two teams, usually of six players on a side, in which the players use their hands to bat a ball back and forth over a high net, trying to make the ball touch the court within the opponents’ playing area before it can be returned. To prevent this a player on the opposing team bats the ball up and toward a teammate before it touches the court surface—that teammate may then volley it back across the net or bat it to a third teammate who volleys it across the net.
If the ball doesn’t enter or leave the hands at the exact same time an official will often call a double contact. A referee would indicate that a double touch has occurred by simply showing 2 up on one hand. Much like the hippie peace sign. 13. Ball Lands In
