In case you have several domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the very same site, you may have the site under one of them and forward the rest. There are different approaches to forward one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your hosting package permits it, though, it will be better if you host each of 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 can still have content for it, set up subdomains, e mail addresses, and so on., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. For instance, if you are building localized Internet sites under several country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be redirected to the primary website.
