In case you have a number of domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open precisely the same site, you can have the website under one of them and redirect all the rest. There are various ways to redirect one domain to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package deal allows it, though, it will be better if you host all the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main 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 so on., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an example, if you're building localized sites under several country-code domains, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors shall be forwarded to the primary website.
