When you have a few domain names with different extensions and you want all of them to open the very same website, you could have the website under one of them and forward the rest. There are several ways to forward one domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package permits it, though, it will 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 address is hosted, you may still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized sites under various country-code Internet domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, visitors will be redirected to the primary website.
