In case you have a few domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open exactly the same website, you can have the Internet site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are different methods to redirect one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your hosting plan allows it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. For instance, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the main Internet site.
