When you have a number of domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the same Internet site, you may have the site under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are a number of ways to redirect one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your website hosting package permits it, though, it'll be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The primary 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 many others., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For instance, if you're building localized sites under various country-code domains, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors will be redirected to the main Internet site.
