If you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open the very same Internet site, you can have the website under one of them and forward the rest. There are several approaches to redirect one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting plan permits it, though, it'll be better if you host all the domains and set up 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, 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 various country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be redirected to the main Internet site.
