When you have a number of domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same Internet site, you could have the site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are several methods to forward one domain to another, including the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized Internet sites under various country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be redirected to the main Internet site.
