When you have several domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open precisely the same Internet site, you can have the site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are various approaches to forward one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, e-mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. For instance, if you're building localized websites under different country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but meanwhile, visitors will be redirected to the main Internet site.
