In case you have a number of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the very same Internet site, you could have the site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are several approaches to redirect one domain to another, like the so-called domain parking. When your 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 primary difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. As an illustration, if you are building localized sites under different country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary website.
