In case you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open precisely the same Internet site, you can have the Internet site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are several methods to forward one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package allows it, though, it shall be better if you host all the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized websites under several country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be redirected to the main site.
