In case you have a lot of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same site, you may have the website under one of them and redirect the rest. There are a number of approaches to redirect one domain to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package permits 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 may still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized websites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, people shall be redirected to the main Internet site.
