In case you have a number of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the same Internet site, you can have the Internet site under one of them and forward the rest. There are several methods to forward one Internet domain name to another, including the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting plan permits it, though, it'll be better if you host all of the domains and set up 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 cannot do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be forwarded to the primary site.
