If you have a number of domain names with different extensions and you would like all of them to open the very same Internet site, you can have the site under one of them and forward the others. There are different ways to forward one Internet domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. When your web hosting plan permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain is hosted, you can still have content for it, create subdomains, e mail addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of these things. For example, if you're building localized sites under several country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but meanwhile, people will be forwarded to the primary website.
